***How to Comply With DMCA***



The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States copyright law. It prohibits the reproduction and public display of copyrighted material without permission of the copyright owner.  For full details, see the Wikipedia article, Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

By republishing news articles in their entirety you may be exposing this site to a copyright infringement lawsuit.  And a ‘Fair Use Notice’ may not provide legal protection.  Therefore, in order to comply with DMCA, as well as Ning’s Terms of Service, it is necessary for 12160 to initiate a policy to avoid reposting news articles in their entirety.  The following applies to any article repost on this site including blogs, forum discussions, group discussions, and comments.


In accordance with industry accepted best practices we ask that users limit their copy / paste of copyrighted material to the relevant portions of the article you wish to discuss and no more than forty (40%) of the source material, provide an active link back to the original article and provide your original comments / criticism in your post with the article.

We will fix problem posts but you may be asked to leave if you can not follow this rule.

We are under attack and can lose this site and all of our work if copyright laws are broken. We are subject to the will of Ning, our host.



All other policies for posting blogs and discussions, such as using tags, still apply.  See How to Post a Blog for details.


12160 reserves the right to delete or edit posts that do not comply with DMCA, with or without notice.

@ Greg, you still didnt answer why you are bothering Nikki with dumb questions. You are a mod, for now, and should just help where ya can.

@ Maria, well I am not so concerned about this now since I added a new dmca reporting page.

It didnt help all that much having bold large letters  informing members, for 20 people still posted blogs and even 3 still did it after being asked not to 2- or 3 times. We haven't had a corporate dmca complaint in years, yet our host could pull the site over just one.

I am more concerned with members reporting us to our web hosting company for "abuse" .

This should be displayed prominently on top of the page the same way the No More Blogs Notice was and sent automatically as a link to Newbies as they subscribe

Why must everyone else do the work?
Why must I pay the bill for this place just about every month by myself?

It is getting to the point where I am just about done here.

Greg, do you no longer want mod powers here? You are one of a few that is a mod, yet you bother Nikki with your newest whines about training people.

Why don't you welcome people , we asked you and dozens others and yet we get no help. 

It is getting harder to give a fuck,. thanks Greg.

@ Greg, thanks. I know what you mean. I don't even have time on my lunch hour.

@ Capt. Dave, yes, we have bigger fish to fry. However, if you value this site, please do comply with DMCA as it keeps us out of trouble. Thank you.

@ Greg, it's OK to ask them for the the source link if you have the time.
