/site/ - Site Issues

The board for discussing site related issues, questions, concerns, and suggestions.
Name?

This field is optional. You can choose any name you want, or you can post anonymously by leaving this field empty.

Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

why was this thread deleted?

The one containing links to newly released retail music albums which would be illegal to share under US laws?

alright fair enough I guess, I just didn't realize it was a problem now, I'm pretty sure we've had those threads from time to time in the past and the mods didn't care. and they are up basically 24/7 on 4chan's /mu/. but I suppose I understand why it would be a problem...

so can we get banned for posting leaks then? also when would we be able to post albums? is a year long enough to have the link stay or will you guys start removing all links?

this is actually important.

hey guys, can we get some actual clarification on what's okay to post and what's not when it comes to links to music? i get that it's a sticky issue, but until then users like me are caught in a lurch aboit what to do.

like, if i was to post a "mixtape" of a bunch of songs via mega and two songs came from 2017, would that be grounds for link removal? also what about music that's only on certain streaming services like tidal or apple music? that kinda stuff is seen as proprietary, so would posting any of it be seen as grounds for removal?

or is it just too complicated of an issue for there to be an official policy?

i get it if it is, copyright laws are horseshit, but you guys are the ones who removed the thread in the first place. we need an offical statement, if for no other reason than for us to just stop posting links in threads and just shunt it to a discord like most other aspects of the site.

*ahem*

can we get a response from the mods within the next 7-10 business days, in this thread? i mean, this is a legitimate concern and i'm pretty sure you guys can come up with clarifications on what is okay and not okay to post when it comes to music by then.

or at least a response that you guys are talking about this? this is a legal issue after all. if it's really complicated, we understand. just tell us that you're actually doing something policy-wise. i don't think anyone is asking for huge changes, just some kind of official statement would be nice.

After looking into the legalities, it's iffy as fuck as we're not directly hosting things, only sharing links to what may or may not be illegal material.
As long as we dont turn into a site dedicated to compiling a list of links, we're probably fine though as we're not expected to verify all URL's shared between users, it's how Google gets away with listing Piratebay and other such sites.
Naturally if we get contacted by anybody official about something specific we have to actively remove said thing.
I may like the site and people here, but i'm not fighting a legal battle with copyright ninjas over this.
That said, we are likely small time, so i doubt we're even on anyone's radar for things like that.

To cover my own ass, i officially do not condone sharing copyrighted material on this site.

Most of this post seems like an argument for allowing it and not giving a fuck, and then the last sentence is "nah I give a fuck". Why?

What about linking YayPonies or stuff like that? Is that verboten now too?

Saying or implying "I allow illegal content to be linked on this site i own" could quite literally earn me jail time as far as i understand it, although it's a bit iffy considering I'm british and the servers are canadian.
I would really appreciate someone with actual legal knowledge clarifying this, but until then i'm covering my ass.

Hi Fen, as long as you are not paying for the servers (and so, you are not the legal distributor of the content), you are immune from any legal repercussions.

Because legally you are not the owner of this site. so, go crazy.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 11727

>>11726
wait, since macil's gone, who's paying the cash?

if you're paying, then rest assured, Canada won't be requesting an extradition of a brony for linking a stupid torrent site. this is no different from linking pirate bay or rarbg, and you got any idea how many referals those sites get?

Unless you get an email from a British lawyer (they are legally required to order you to cease and desist, this is more or less the same as C&Ds in US) you should not give a fuck.

feel free to fucking *host* the .torrent files here, nobody in the world is going to care.

-Hosting or linking torrent files or sites that store such files currently do not count as copyright violations under US/UK/Canadian law even if they are used to redistribute copyrighted intellectual properties illegally.

-Copyright violations will be prosecuted under the hosting server's jurisdiction. A lawyer/law firm will contact the webmaster with a Cease and Desist letter requesting a copyright takedown. If it is not handled, then they will contact the hosting service provider and the provider will likely terminate their hosting services with you as a violation of the Terms of Service agreement.

-Unless you are judged as a habitual distributor of copyrighted materials with explicit intent of copyright violations, the matter will almost never going to be escalated as a criminal case under US/UK/Canadian law.

-You should probably be more worried about Hate Speech/Pedophilia law in Canada than copyrights.
