YE OLDE POLICY STATEMENT

HEAR YE! HEAR YE! LET IT BE KNOWN THAT THIS IS THE OFFICIAL POLICY STATEMENT FOR THE MODSpeak™ WORLD WIDE WEB SITE WITH REGARD TO CONTENTS, COPYRIGHTS, SUBMISSIONS, OBLIGATIONS, AND ALL THE OTHER DREARY DISCLAIMERS THAT ARE TRADITIONALLY EXPECTED IN THE FINE PRINT OF SUCH PLACES DUE TO THE EXCESSIVE BUREAUCRACY OF THE HUMAN RACE AND ITS APPARENTLY UNQUENCHABLE AND UNDOUBTEDLY OVERRATED NEED TO READ SUCH FINE PRINT AS IT EXISTS HEREIN.

[In other words, if you are reading this you really need a life!]

PART THE FIRST: CONTENTS AND COPYRIGHTS
THE CONTENTS OF THIS SITE ARE DIVIDED INTO SEVERAL CATEGORIES: ORIGINAL WORKS CREATED, OWNED, COPYRIGHTED, AND/OR PUBLISHED BY VARIOUS AUTHORS OR THEIR AGENTS WITH AN INDICATION THAT SUCH WORKS SHOULD BE FREELY DISTRIBUTED; NON-ORIGINAL WORKS CREATED BY VARIOUS AUTHORS AND NOT COPYRIGHTED OR FORMALLY PUBLISHED DUE TO CONTENT; ORIGINAL WORKS CREATED, OWNED AND COPYRIGHTED BY RICH LA BONTE AND/OR fLAtDiSk™ SoftWorks AND/OR PUBLISHED BY EAR SNACKS MUSIC (BMI); NON-ORIGINAL WORKS CREATED BY RICH LA BONTE BUT NOT COPYRIGHTED OR FORMALLY PUBLISHED DUE TO CONTENT; AND OTHER UNCLASSIFIED WORKS, SUCH AS THOSE OBNOXIOUS LITTLE .DIZ TEXT FILES THAT YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO OVERWRITE ANYWAY WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO UNZIP A WHOLE BUNCH OF ARCHIVED FILES AT THE SAME TIME.

AS NOTED ON EACH PAGE OF THIS SITE, WE RESPECT ALL COPYRIGHTS AND WE EXPECT YOU TO DO THE SAME. THIS MEANS YOU CAN DISTRIBUTE FILES ON WHICH WE CLAIM COPYRIGHT, BUT IF YOU USE THEM IN SOME GAME, OR PUT THEM ON A CD-ROM OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT WITHOUT PERMISSION, WE WILL SUE YOU. WHAT YOU DO WITH FILES ON WHICH WE DO NOT CLAIM COPYRIGHT IS YOUR BUSINESS, BUT IF WE FIND OUT THAT YOU ARE SCREWING SOMEBODY WE KNOW, WE ARE SURE AS HELL GOING TO TELL THEM AND WE MIGHT EVEN OFFER THEM OUR LAWYER'S SERVICES - WHO KNOWS?

PART THE SECOND: SUBMISSIONS
MODSpeak™ DOES NOT ACCEPT SUBMISSIONS OF MOD FILES, GRAPHICS, OR TEXT AT THIS TIME.

MODSpeak™ RESERVES THE RIGHT TO ADD AND/OR WITHDRAW ALL FILES AT THIS SITE AT THE DISCRETION OF ITS ADMINISTRATOR, HOWEVER NO FILES WILL EVER BE WITHDRAWN FROM THIS SITE AS AN ACT OF CENSORSHIP.

PART THE THIRD: OBLIGATIONS
MODSpeak™ IS IN NO WAY OBLIGATED TO RESPOND TO PATRON REQUESTS FOR FILES TO BE ADDED TO THE SITE. WE ARE IN NO WAY OBLIGATED TO RESPOND TO PATRON REQUESTS TO REMOVE FILES FROM THE SITE, EXCEPT AT AN AUTHOR'S REQUEST AS DETAILED BELOW.

MODSpeak™ WILL RESPOND TO REQUESTS FROM AUTHORS TO REMOVE THEIR MUSIC FILES FROM OUR LIBRARIES, SHOULD SUCH OCCASION ARISE, BUT WILL NOT BE OBLIGATED TO UPDATE CURRENT LIBRARY SELECTIONS WITH NEW VERSIONS OF THE SAME MUSIC FILE AT THE AUTHOR'S WHIM. WE FEEL THAT IT IS CORRECT TO ASSUME THAT ANY FILE RELEASED ON THE INTERNET OR TO A COMMERCIAL NETWORK BY ITS AUTHOR IS INTENDED AS A FREELY DISTRIBUTED FILE FOR ALL TIME AND THAT IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE AUTHOR TO DETERMINE THAT A PIECE OF MUSIC IS FINISHED AND COMPLETE BEFORE ITS RELEASE. THIS DOES NOT HOLD TRUE, HOWEVER, FOR PROGRAM FILES SUCH AS PLAYERS AND TRACKERS. IN THE CASE OF PLAYERS AND TRACKERS, WE WILL UPDATE ALL FILES AND LINKS AT THE REQUEST OF THE PROGRAM'S AUTHOR OR WHEN IT IS DETERMINED THAT A PROGRAM IS IN A NEW RELEASE VERSION.

MODSpeak™ IS IN NO WAY OBLIGATED TO PROVIDE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE WITH REGARD TO FILES OBTAINED FROM THIS SITE. WE WILL RESPOND TO EMAIL REGARDING ANY QUESTION AS TIME PERMITS, ASSUMING THAT THE SENDER IS NOT A HOSTILE PARANOID JERK. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO IGNORE ALL FLAMES.
