Copyright Policy and Intellectual Property Policy
Last Updated: 9/21/2009
mash4, Inc. ("mash4") wants YOU to know that it respects the intellectual property of others (particularly of YOU), and we ask our users to do the same. mash4 does not claim any copyright or other ownership in any material or content uploaded by YOU onto the system operated by mash4 (the "mash4 Site") (other than solely to provide the mash4 Service) because YOU have uploaded it on to the mash4 Site.
mash4 is the neutral host of each content feed it administers, and users are independent persons or entities that are not controlled by mash4. Neither the admission nor the continued membership of any user or entity constitutes endorsement by mash4. mash4 does not police their actions, nor does mash4 undertake any responsibility for their acts or omissions. While mash4 encourages independent website operators and users to adopt responsible approaches to usage of mash4, it is possible that some operators will take actions or engage in activities through the application that are alleged to infringe the intellectual property rights of others.
In addition, YOUR right to use material available on or through mash4 services may be limited by copyright and the intellectual property laws of the United States and/or other countries. It is up to YOU to determine your rights to any such material.
Where appropriate, it is mash4's policy to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who mash4 determines in its sole discretion, may infringe or repeatedly infringe the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of mash4 and/or others.
