Copyright Infringement

Materials may be made available through third parties that are not within our control.  This blog site respects the copyright interest of others and it is not the policy of this site to permit materials known by us to infringe on another party’s copyright.  If you believe that any material on this site infringes copyright, you should provide provide us with written notice that contains the minimum of:

We will happily remove the material that infringes copyright.

Hoping one day that laws regarding copyright and intellectual property is removed for the benefit and the advancement of humanity.  For if ideas are owned by the few then mankind is harmed by the prevention of progress and benefits for the masses.  I encourage you to credit people who have inspired or contributed to your work.

The Governing Law

The laws in the State of New South Wales, Australia shall govern these conditions.  You are hereby expressly giving consent to exclusive jurisdiction and court venues located in the State of New South Wales (Australia) for all matters arising in connection with these conditions of use or your access of use.

In the event (future) that a International Court of Law for governing internet and its practices is established, then it will become the governing law.

Indemnity

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the site, authors, employees, business partners and agents, from and against  any and all damages, claims, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) any breach by you of any of these Conditions of Use, (ii) you content, (iii) your use of materials or features available on the service (unless a claim is based upon the infringement of a third party right by materials created by the Site) or (iv) you violate applicable law or agreement or terms with a third party to which you are the subject.

Hoping for a better world when money is no longer a driving force in our lives.  For the people who use the law to gain monetary value and destroy people’s lives, may you come to realize that you prevent the progress and benefit for mankind to advance.
