Welcome to Poets Live!
We don’t mean to turn you off from getting involved by immediately inundating you with legalese, but we need to make clear our respective rights and responsibilities related to this service. So, Poets Live offer these services (the “Services”) to you subject to the terms and conditions of use (“Terms”) contained herein. By accessing, creating or contributing to any of the Services hosted at poets-live.com, and in consideration for the Services we provide to you, you agree to abide by these Terms. Please read them carefully before using any of the Services.

Option for alternative Licence Terms
If you prefer to offer your Content under alternative terms, you may do so.
By posting your Content using the Services, you are granting Poets Live a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, and worldwide licence to use your Content in connection with the operation of the Services, including, without limitation, the licence rights to copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, translate and reformat your Content, and/or to incorporate it into a collective work.
When publicly displaying, publicly performing, reproducing or distributing copies of your Content, or Content as incorporated into a collective work, Poets Live will make best efforts to credit your authorship. You grant Poets Live permission to use your name for such attribution purposes. You, likewise, agree to represent yourself accurately. You acknowledge that misrepresentation may lead us, in our sole discretion, to cancel your use of the Services and delete any of your Content.
Those of us who are coordinating this project believe deeply in free speech. Given our role in offering this service and our presence together as part of the extended university community, however, we must reserve the right to remove certain content that you may post. As a general matter, you may post content freely to your blog and to those of others, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, defamatory, threatening, infringing of intellectual property rights, invasive of privacy or otherwise injurious or objectionable.
You may not use the Poets Live name to endorse or promote any product, opinion, cause or political candidate. Representation of your personal opinions as endorsed by Poets Live is strictly prohibited.
By posting content to any blog, you warrant and represent that you either own or otherwise control all of the rights to that content, including, without limitation, all the rights necessary for you to provide, post, upload, input or submit the content, or that your use of the content is a protected fair use. You agree that you will not knowingly and with intent to defraud provide material and misleading false information. You represent and warrant also that the content you supply does not violate these Terms, and that you will indemnify and hold Poets Live harmless for any and all claims resulting from content you supply.
You acknowledge that Poets Live does not pre-screen or regularly review posted content, but that it shall have the right to remove in its sole discretion any content that it considers to violate these Terms or the terms of any other user agreements that may govern your use of the Services.
You understand that all content posted to Poets Live is the sole responsibility of the individual who originally posted the content. You understand, also, that all opinions expressed by users of this site are expressed strictly in their individual capacities, and not as representatives of Poets Live.
