To Members Who Post Photos and Articles ... Copyrights
Please, be careful when posting any pictures or articles in the Fashion Spot forums. Copyright laws state that no one may post photos or articles without specific permission from the "copyright holder". In many cases this would be the photographer, his agents/manager/photo agency or the magazines where the photos were originally published.

All members agreed, when they joined, that they would have permission from the copyright holders, before they posted this sort of content. All members have also agreed that they will bear full responsibility for violating any copyrights.

Due to new technology, copyright holders now have the means to scan forums for their photos and content and our legal department has been receiving many more complaints of copyright violations and threats of lawsuits if they fail to warn the copyright violators.

Therefore, our legal department is forced, in compliance with the law, to take the following steps, when they receive one of the complaints:

1. Remove the content.
2. Warn the member who posted it that he/she has posted copyrighted material without permission and that if they get additional complaints, the member will lose posting privileges.
3. It will be 3 strikes (according to our published Community Rules) ... 2 warnings then a ban.

** It's All in the Details! **
