urban75 has a large and lively community posting on the bulletin boards. To make your stay a pleasant one, it is a condition of your registration that you read the following before posting. See the Help menu for technical problems.
Briefly: Anyone pissing about, advertising, hassling, posting up disruptive content or personal info, or peddling racist, homophobic, defamatory, sexist or similarly dodgy content can be expected to be booted off without appeal.
Even more briefly: Don't act like a dick and we'll all get along fine.
You retain full copyright in everything you write on these boards; by posting on urban75 you agree that some material may be archived on the static part of the site, if appropriate (that is, for readers who are lawyers: you grant an indefinite licence to urban75 to reproduce your words, here and only here.).
This is to ensure that interesting threads are properly archived and read by as many people as possible - and it'll also save us the hassle of having to go around PM'ing everyone individually.
(Please note: all posts are already automatically archived via the database functionality of the boards.).
Naturally, urban75 will never, ever seek to profit from this material - if we are approached by someone asking about reproduction rights, we will forward the enquiry directly to the poster(s) concerned.
Copyright in each post remains with the author of that post; urban75 holds both the "database right" and a separate "compilation" copyright in entire threads and in the boards as a whole.
This means that we can take action against anyone who rips off chunks of threads, as well as individual posters being able to take action against those who rip off their words.
In the past, large chunks of the site have been used by newspapers without permission. In future, we will use our rights to protect urban75 content from commercial exploitation without permission and we encourage posters to use theirs.
Your posts are yours, you keep copyright in them and no-one can legally use them elsewhere without your permission;
By posting, you give permission for your post to appear on urban75; and The collection and the database that are urban75 belong to urban75 as a whole.
These terms may be changed at any time without notice.
Remember: The admin team run this site in their own time and for no profit, so unprovoked or sustained personal attacks may result in a ban - show some respect for their hard work!
