PLOT WITH shan
content disclaimer
please read this information thoroughly prior to posting on-site

It is important that everyone actively posting on Bittersweet Forever be actively aware of the following. It's unfortunate that we need to post this up at all, but given hostile interactions we've had with ex-members in the past, it's extremely important that this be communicated from the get-go.

I have been in touch with John (who owns Jcink) about the legal responsibility of a website owner (such as myself) when it comes to a member or an admin member leaving the website and requesting/demanding any/all of their content be stripped from Bittersweet Forever permanently.

It is not 'property' theft, first and foremost, for Bittersweet Forever to continue housing a member or admin member's content after they have left the website. When they posted their content to our website, be it a post in a thread as a character, a canon list, a character application... they gave this forum permission to keep it here so long as I (the website owner) wished to keep it on-site. They also gave Jcink's server the same permission as per the terms of services they agreed to when signing up to any Jcink website:

QUOTE
With respect to any content entered into and stored by Jcink Forum Hosting, the submitting user retains ownership of such content. The submitting user grants Jcink Forum Hosting the royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, transferable license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, distribute, perform, and display such content.


The reason this stipulation exists is so users cannot turn around and say "I never gave you permission to have that on your service" and attempt to sue me (the website owner) nor the server we are on (Jcink).

We here at Bittersweet Forever have no obligation to delete a post that the author made simply because "they want it down" and are choosing to cry "infringement" when it's not. Would someone who gave you something be able to cry "theft" if they wanted to take it back? Absolutely not. This situation is about the same.

Please keep this in mind when uploading content. We here at Bittersweet Forever keep almost all posted content even if a member leaves or is asked to leave our website. Obviously this includes (but is not limited to) threads with other members. If this is a problem, feel free to contact me (Shantel) via PM at any time.
