Copyright violation policy update as of June 17, 2002 -
Neowin.net does not allow or permit the posting of copyright violations. This includes, but is not limited to visual styles, icons, PNG's, wallpapers and application skins. The following guidelines should be considered when posting a copyrighted work -
1.) Permission from the original copyright holder must be included with the posted content. Permission should be current, valid and addressed to the member posting the copyrighted work. A copy of the permission should be forwarded to an active forum moderator.
2.) Screenshots of copyrighted material are allowed within the forums. However, any attempt to distribute a "ripped" work by a Neowin member is a violation of Neowin.net policy. This includes use of the private message system, posting of email addresses etc ....
3.) All permissions will be followed up by a forum moderator. Posting of a falsified permission will result in immediate action being taken against the offending member.
4.) Neowin.net asks that all members that find a work they believe to be in violation of copyright to report the offending material immediately, including all information as to why you believe the work to be in violation of a copyright.
Any post in violation of the above policies will be deleted. Disciplinary action against the offending board member will follow existing Neowin policies.
Neowin.net respects the integrity and rights of artists and their works.
If you have any questions or complaints about the enforcement of this policy, please feel free to contact any of the moderators in the Customizing Windows forum.
