It is Windhorse Books’ policy to respond to notice of alleged copyright infringement in compliance with Section 512 of the Copyright Act, enacted as part of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable laws. If you are a copyright owner or an agent of a copyright owner, and you believe that any content or link on our website WindhorseBooks.com or any portion of the Website, including the Events Calendar, the Members Directory, the Member Forum or any other pages on the Website infringes upon your copyright, you may submit a notice to us. Please provide us with the following information, as required under Section 512(c) of the U.S. Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512(c)): an electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest; a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; a description of the location on the Website (i.e., the URL) of the material that you claim is infringing ; your address, telephone number, and email address; a written statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on such copyright owner’s behalf that fails to comply with the requirements of Section 512 of the Copyright Act shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon us actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident.
It may be advisable to consult your legal advisor before filing a notice with us. You should note that there can be penalties for false claims under Section 512 of the Copyright Act.
Blog Comments Participation Guidelines
The following rules apply specifically to comments posted to any Windhorse Books’ blog post. We welcome all points of view in our blog comments and encourage all commenters to freely express themselves. That said, we request that all discourse in the blog comments be kept respectful and civil. To that end, we require all blog participants to comply with the following guidelines:
We do not permit abusive language; we will not post, or will take down, any comments we find that contain abusive or hateful language.
Bear in mind that this is a public blog. As such, do not post another’s personal information without consent or otherwise violate another’s privacy. Likewise, don’t post any thoughts, ideas, or personal information about yourself that you do not want made public.
- We do not tolerate plagiarism, copyright infringement, the impersonation of another, defamation, or any language that advocates or incites violent or illegal acts.
- We do not allow advertising, solicitation, or links to outside websites to be posted.
- Last but not least, we ask you to refrain from using that Caps Lock button—no shouting here.
By posting a comment, you agree that you are fully responsible for what you submit, just as you understand that we are not responsible for any user-submitted content, and that the views and opinions expressed by users of the Website are not those Windhorse Books itself.
Windhorse Books retains the right to remove any content that does not conform to these guidelines and to deny further access to the Website to any person who posts such content.
