Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Thumbs up The Gowers Report - UK Government Report on Copyright Law Changes

Have many of you gang heard about the above mentioned report re: copyright laws in the UK ?

Click here for a good starting point and follow it up with a Google search...

And for a quick link to a pdf file discussing the 'economic' realities of the recording industry, try here...

(iv)The Net Effect. Given the small size of this increase, the large number of works already being produced and the likely size of the deadweight loss (particularly in relation to historical works) it is our view that a term
extensionwill likely result in a net loss to UK society as a whole.
Nice solid Brit conclusion. (p 49)

HEY THERE, Stief !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Long time no NADA !!!!!!!!!

Hope you and yours OK !!!
(Me gotta worry large about you multi-hullers !!!!!!!!!)

Yuppp... Kinda protective, as only dem Brits can do it... (albeit temporarily, as usual !)

BUT, the main point re: The Gowers Report is basic... I first posted these links in simple form to try to judge reaction...
NO SURPRISE that you are the only respondent to date !

For the rest of you gang... The Gowers Report is an 'officialy sanctioned' investigative report re: the impact, pertaining to the UK market (i.e. 'Industrial Base') of the pros & cons of ascribing to the corporate welfare system of support for the recording industry of the U.S.A. and its absurd and singular 'laws'...

PLEASE READ IT ALL !

'Bottom line', as they say in the Peoples Kleptocracy of Dumphuqistan, is that the 'Recording Industry' in general is doing MORE than well enough, thank you, and that it would be contrary to the overall interests of the UK economy to follow suit.

Geddit ?

The report on the economic realities of the world-wide Recording Industry is most interesting...

This is not some dry and boring bit of word following dreary word...

Please, gang, READ IT ALL, OK !?!?
I mean, Her Majesty's Treasury is... ON OUR SIDE (sort of) !
...& that's about as weird as weird gets, hmmm ?

p.s. Maybe I have posted this in the wrong place... dunno...

Thanks Ursula,sometimes we get things right ! good report, I especially liked this bit: Combined with our conclusion that the case for term extension is in fact, WEAK,means it would be particularly inadvisable,given our present state of knowledge,for a RATIONAL policymaker to extend the term of copyright in sound recordings. !! Says it all doesnt it !
Well spotted and thanks, it wasn't given much coverage over here (Wonder why)

Every report done in Canada has said the same, no matter who commissioned it,
and every time the recording industry has both lied about the results and gone
on to label Canada as a den of piracy even as their lies are exposed in the press.
The american movie industry behaves the same way so it's all old news to us.

It has gone on so long that the Canadian music and movie industries are now
almost totally divorced from those crazy liars, which leaves the so-called CRIA
in the utterly weird position of representing literally no Canadian musician or
label yet still trying to bribe and lobby our federal politicians even while all of
them know these shills represent exclusively american and foreign interests
these days.

It has literally become a comedy in our press as their lies become more and more
desperate and pitiful. Witness the recent threats by MPAA members to delay
screenings in Canada because Toronto is apparently the source of nearly 50%
of all "cams" (in the whole world!). Even though exposed as a blatant lie, they
insist on repeating it in hopes of tricking our own politicians into changing our
existing and reasonable anti-cam laws into something as ridiculously over the
top as those in the US.

Thanks Aaron, Your right it's a comedy of errors, the keyword in all this is RATIONAL,I firmly believe that this was started by the '' Pay to View '' television market some time ago, recording industry accountants saw an opportunity for a ''Free lunch'' as you know there are dark moves by microsoft and copyright lawyers to make even more re-hashed money, and it's all about control of media empires after all. the fact that the whole policy is insanity, leaves everybody as a loser in the long run, will only go away if the costs of court cases outweigh percieved profit in continuing with this madness.It's good to hear that the Canadians have a lot of common sense on this issue, distinctly lacking in US policies I think ! Here in the UK we do have a reputation for common sense, not one shared by our present government I fear.
Kind regards,
Newbee 2

As far as the law goes, There is different laws depending on what country you are in, so check where you stand with your country's law, My opinion is, that all
perceived ownership is theft, Every atom was here when
we arrived at birth & when we age gracefully an pass from this world it will all be here, even the bodies we
utilize,return to their real proprietor our mother earth
COPY!! there's a word, & who has the right too.
The British once made a law, that the common Indian
people could not copy the process of making salt.
Until Mohan Das K Ghandi encouraged men to stand
in peaceful protest against such foolishness.
If cave men did'nt copy, what music would there be
A large consideration for me is, IF music be the food of love, then who has the right to keep us hungry.

Just don't put it on CD to sell, I think thats wrong
For you & your friends to listen to, I don't see any harm. Choice! is always yours.
Later friends.
Peace
