AllMyFAQs Copyright Notice

Policy.

The copyrights of material on AllMyFAQs (the site at http://allmyfaqs.net) are copyright AllMyFAQs, the authors, the authors' employers or the current copyright holder. The site does not claim ownership of the content you contribute to AllMyFAQs. Works are contributed with permission. By submitting content to AllMyFAQs for inclusion in its site, you grant AllMyFAQs the world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the content for the purpose of displaying and distributing such content through AllMyFAQs's systems.

Permissions are extended to reasonable use on the world wide web. Permission is granted to reference (link to), but not copy, content on this site unless within the bounds of "fair use."

Additionally, you grant AllMyFAQs a non-exclusive perpetual royalty-free universal license to distribute the content in its archives, or distribute the content in a compilation of selected AllMyFAQs content. The redistributed material will be timestamped.

The collection and structure of AllMyFAQs wiki are copyright AllMyFAQs.

The site reserves the right to make technical edits to the contributed material, but not so as to change the original meaning or intent. This is in the spirit of a letter to the editor of a newspaper.

The site or its owners take no responsibility in determining or verifying authorship of material.

Scope.

SEVERABILITY. If any part of this license is found to be unenforceable in any jurisdiction, the remaining portions of the license remain in force.

NO WARRANTY. AllMyFAQs wiki works are licensed and provided "as is" without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose or a warranty of non-infringement.

LIMITATION OF EDITORIAL RESPONSIBILITY. The site nor AllMyFAQs does not pre-screen any works or material submitted by third parties. The site reserves the right (but not the obligation) in its sole discretion to refuse or remove any works or material that are available via the site's systems. The site and AllMyFAQs absolve themselves of all editorial responsibility over the works and material on the site.

Acknowledgments.

This policy was derived largely from [MeatballWikiCopyright], with permission.


Rationale

This part is not part of the policy.

Essentially, the policy says you own what you say, but people will make edits in the wiki fashion. Totally altering someone's statement around would not be allowed (of course!), because that allows for stuffing words into people's mouths.

Also, the site maintains control over its structure to prevent wholesale mirroring of the content here. Note, while anonymous contributions have no known authors, they are still protected by the law. However, it would be difficult to prove authorship of anything anyway as there is universal editing.

Finally, I'd like to be able to redistribute How Tos and FAQs written here communally, not to mention taking back ups of the database. Hence the timestamp snapshots.

Many thanks to [Sunir Shah], for granting permission to copy this material from [MeatballWikiCopyright]. -- Jerry Muelver
