Use of and Downloading Materials
If you (or a legal entity you control) own and operate a Web site or engage in other Internet activity, such as electronic commerce, communication, publishing and transmission, and want to download, post, publish, or use Materials for any such Web site or Internet activity, you will need permission from Uncyclopedia, even though your Web site or Internet activity is free of charge. For that matter, you should check with Uncyclopedia for permission before you even think about going near a computer, or any building that looks like it might have a computer in it. And don't even think about touching a Radio Shack catalogue without checking in with us first. Unless you are a student, or your use of the Materials is short term and minimal, your use of the Materials may be subject to copyright and other legal restrictions.
Requests regarding the use of the Materials for any purpose other than educational, personal and occasional and minimal non-commercial use should be directed to Uncyclopedia Site Administrators, whose sole discretion holds supreme jurisdiction over the decision.
You may use language or engage in any activity that is threatening, abusive, vulgar, discourteous, and unlawful on this Site, unless directed at the Site Administrators. Uncyclopedia reserves the right to remove or edit messages or material submitted by users. You may not use this Site for sale, trade, or other commercial purposes.
You are responsible for your own communications and are responsible for the consequences of their posting. You must not do any of the following things unless you really think you can get away from it:
- post information or material that is copyrighted, unless you are the copyright owner or have the permission of the copyright owner to post such information or materials;
- post information or material that contains a virus or other harmful component;
- post information or material that reveals trade secrets, unless you own them and are stupid enough to post them or have the permission of the owner who is stupid enough to give permission;
- post information or materials to this Site that violate the rights of any third party, including, without limitation, information or material that infringes on any intellectual property rights of others or on the privacy or publicity rights of others, unless it's funny;
- post information or material that is obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, abusive, hateful, or embarrassing to any other person or entity, unless it's arguably funny;
- post a potentially disturbing image, such as one of a clown eating uncooked shellfish;
- post advertisements or solicitations of business without paying the Site Administrators;
- post chain letters or the like; or
- impersonate or impregnate another person.
Keep in mind that other users will have access to materials you post to this Site, and they might copy, modify, or distribute it. By posting information or materials to this Site, you warrant and represent that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content and that public posting, and use of your information or materials by Uncyclopedia will not infringe or violate the rights of any third party. You automatically grant to Uncyclopedia, a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, orchestrate, edit, translate, put mayonnaise on, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, declaim, display, make toilet paper out of, and sell your communications alone or as part of other works in any form, media, or technology whether now known or hereafter developed, and to sublicense such rights through multiple tiers of sublicenses. Legally, you yield your intellectual property and soul to Uncyclopedia.
Communications by Other Users
Uncyclopedia does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any communications posted by other users or endorse any opinions expressed by users. You acknowledge that any reliance on material posted by other users will be at your own risk.
Linking, Framing and Third Party Sites
This Site provides links to other World Wide Web sites or resources. Hyperlinks to other Internet resources are provided for your convenience. The editors of Uncyclopedia have selected these resources as having some value and pertinence, but their development and maintenance are not under the direction of Uncyclopedia. Thus, the content, accuracy, and suitability of information contained therein, opinions expressed therein, and other links provided by these resources are neither verified by Uncyclopedia editors nor endorsed by Uncyclopedia. You, however, must agree to endorse all opinions contained in the content of this Site, even when (indeed, especially when) they are illogical, unreasoned, offensive, dangerous or silly.
Because Uncyclopedia has no control over such sites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that Uncyclopedia is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites or resources and shall not be liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused by the use of any such content, product, or materials. You access, eat, use, and rely upon such content, products, or materials at your own risk.
Any linking to the Site shall be at your own risk and expense and shall not be construed as an endorsement by or implication of any affiliation with Uncyclopedia, unless Uncyclopedia authorizes such linking in advance. Uncyclopedia reserves the right to object to or have removed any link that is determined by Uncyclopedia in its sole judgment to be inappropriate, inconsistent with the Site's image and reputation, or otherwise creates an undue burden on the Site or on Uncyclopedia.
You shall not, and shall not authorize any other person to, (i) co-brand the Site or portion thereof, or (ii) frame the Site or portion thereof (whereby the Site or portion thereof will appear on the same screen with a portion of another Site). "Co-branding" means to display a name, logo, trademark, or other means of attribution or identification of any party in such a manner reasonably likely to give a user the impression that such other party has the right to display, publish, or distribute the Site or Material accessible with the Site. Uncyclopedia's consent must be obtained in before deep-linking, framing, co-branding, or other activity impacting the access to or the use of our Site. Failure to obtain such consent may result in an infringement claim, legal action, or one or more secret agents committing one or more crimes in your residence or, in the case that you do not have a residence, your head. You agree to cooperate with Uncyclopedia in causing any unauthorized deep-linking, framing, co-branding, or other activity impacting the access to or the use of our Site to immediately cease.
Digital Millenium Copyright Act
If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any Content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
This should be sent by snail mail to:
- Zombie Baron
- Uncyclopedia, Inc.
- 666 Zombiebaron Ave.
- Someplace, Canada 01313
- Email: email@example.com
- Fax: 1 (800) YOU-SUCK
For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, spam, requests for technical support, copyright permission requests, copyleft permission requests, or pie should be directed to our Village Dump.
It is advised that you bring up claims of copyright infringement in the Village Dump, however, as the Uncyclopedia community can usually act on copyright claims faster than the Copyright Agent, although they usually don't, and everyone is happy.
