A member can be removed from a Team Project Room for violating the team contract (e.g. for publically releasing confidential information). InnoCentive has the sole right to remove a member. In the event that a team member is removed:
- All contributed intellectual property (IP) from a removed member stays with the TPR.
- Information regarding the member’s removal will be communicated to the Seeker; the Seeker will assess the potential impact and determine how the team's submission will be treated.
- If any member violates the Team contract, InnoCentive reserves the right to invalidate and disband the TPR.
