***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.

Yes, it's bs but we talk about the internet being under attack and this is the reality. We must comply to protect this site.

Its all nonsense in fact no matter what we do if they want to take it down they will.Internet censorship means that we cannot write what we want or think.

BS or no, we are all guests of those who own, maintain and pay for this site. The owners have legal obligations they must comply with and I would think that everyone here, as guests, should be willing to shoulder the responsibility of seeing to it that their actions bring no harm to the site.
