Covering myself stuff
Where the hell do you find these things?
I regularly go to a few websites, and if I find something rather cool, I put it up here so I can be sure that the image isn’t going to disappear or turn into mr. goatsie on me. 9/10 of the time I can give credit to where it’s due, and even hopefully help the original owner turn a profit on their merchandise (posters, t-shirts, games, etc, etc)
You have a copyrighted image that I am forced to ask you to remove.
If this is the case, call off the lawyers, I’ll just take down the free publicity that you’re getting, I’ll say something to the effect in the post, and there won’t be much of an issue. Funny pictures aren’t worth being sued over. You will need to e-mail an admin (see below for contact information) Due to past hoaxes and false requests, requests in the comments can and will be ignored. Take down notices must have these items included in them :
your contact information including mailing address and phone number
the name of the infringing image
the url address of the copied image (in a clickable fashion please no PDFs. all PDFs are automatically tagged as spam)
a statement that you have a good faith belief that the material is not legally posted on MCS
a statement that under penalty of perjury, you are is authorized to act for the copyright holder
your signature (digital equivalent acceptable)
