Copyrighted Material--PLEASE DO NOT POST IMAGES

Post by Jonicont »

We have recently been informed by our internet host of violations of our copyright agreement with them. Specifically, copyrighted images in the Cool Music Picture thread. Official complaints were sent to the host by the copyright holder. The copyright agreement with our host states "It is our policy to provide for the termination, in appropriate circumstances, of customers and account holders who repeatedly violate this policy or are repeat infringers of copyrighted works, trademarks or any other intellectual property."

A random review of images in the thread showed numerous problematic images.Therefore, we have decided to delete the entire Cool Music Picture thread to try to preemptively protect the site.

GOING FORWARD

Please DO NOT post an image in ANY thread unless you are ABSOLUTELY sure that it is not copyrighted or have permission from the copyright holder. Providing a link to the original is acceptable

Anything officially issued by DBT or Wes Freed is fine

Regarding reviews, articles, interviews etc. Quoting a sentence or two with a link to the original is fine. A paragraph is too much.

Album cover images are still acceptable.

We are certain that no one wants to see the site shut down. If you see something that you believe violates the policy please hit the little report button and let us know so we can remove it. We can't see everything.

Any comments can be directed to Jonicont or Tequila Cowboy offline

Thank You
Always go to the show
