Summary and Conclusions
 The Rules
Someone could win at your game via "collusion".
What will you do about programs which collude with other programs to win, or use other techniques to cheat?
What's all this about disqualification? You never mentioned anything like this in the rules!
Can you tell me more about the $25,000 prize?
Someone could win at your game via "collusion".
Don't bet on it.
What will you do about programs which collude with other programs to win, or use other techniques to cheat?
We will disqualify any programs which we feel to have violated the spirit of the challenge.
What's all this about disqualification? You never mentioned anything like this in the rules!
We deliberately favoured simplicity over comprehensiveness when writing the rules. Although we may be accused of changing the rules to suit our own ends, we believe that the majority of entrants will understand our approach toward "cheats".
Can you tell me more about the $25,000 prize?
The $25,000 prize will be awarded on the event that we enter into a contract with the author(s) of the software. By entering the challenge you transfer to us no rights apart from the right to evaluate your program by running the round-robin tournament (the challenge itself) and the right to evaluate your program in various natural language learning scenarios. You retain all other rights and complete ownership over your work.
