Copyright

By | 6th April 2013

Material on this website

Where the original source of material is known, that source has been credited, permission to use the item has been requested and given and, where appropriate, links provided to the originator’s site. Any item not so credited has been found freely available on the internet or other “public domain” source, is original material generated by and copyright of us, or a combination of these two.

For the purposes of using it, you should assume anything that hasn’t obviously been created or uploaded by another member and doesn’t have a specific copyright credit linking it to someone else is ours.

Infringement by us or our members

If you believe your copyright is being infringed by us on this site, you should contact us immediately by email to kevin@disc-over.me and, subject to satisfactory proof of copyright being supplied, the item will be removed at the earliest opportunity. (And you’ll get our abject apologies, although we realise that doesn’t excuse the offence!)

We ask that members own the copyright to, or have permission to use, any item which they add to our site. If you believe one of our members isn’t playing by the rules, please let us know at kevin@disc-over.me. Any dispute will be between you and the member concerned, but we will most likely remove the item in question until it’s resolved.

Use of our copyright material

We will usually be happy to give permission for any item, or part of an item, copyright of ours to be reproduced elsewhere so long as

  • the copyright is acknowledged and these conditions are further imposed on any subsequent user
  • a clearly visible link to this site is provided from the copied item
  • the ‘general content’ of the website it is used on is legal (legal in the UK, not in some tin pot little country that allows just about anything in order to bring in revenue.)

No item may be sold or used commercially unless this is specifically agreed, in advance, by us.

Of course it may not be immediately apparent whether copyright approval is ours to give or if we are using something someone else has given us permission to. In such cases you need to employ a highly complex and scientific method of determination known as asking. Send an email to kevin@disc-over.me.

Our members’ copyright and our reserved rights

Members retain the copyright to anything legitimately posted on this site. However …

  • We reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to remove anything we think is not suitable or to move it to somewhere which we consider to be more appropriate.

  • We reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to edit a post to correct spelling or punctuation errors but we will NOT edit it in a way that changes the fundamental meaning.

  • We will advise the member (by email to the address used to register at the site) if we remove, move or change anything. If a member prefers that the item be removed rather than changed or moved we will do this if so requested.

If ownership for this site passes to another person or organisation so do these rights and responsibilities.

By posting any item members indicate acceptance of these terms.
