Welcome to the Poetry forum, please read.

Not too many rules and regulations here in poetry, but there are a few.

1. Post all your poems to the same thread. Keep them all in one place so it is easier for others to find and read your collection of work. If you want to post multiple threads, please do not post more than one in a week.

2. Use the Smoke room for friendly conversations and what not. Scrolling through pages and pages of random banter is never fun. If you're going to talk with friends, cool... I could see a place for that, just make a thread in the smoke room.

3. All general forum rules apply to the poetry forum. No Spamming, Trolling, or Flaming. If you like or don't like somebody's poetry that's fine and feel free to share it. Just make sure the criticism is constructive.

4. All original material posted by a member is considered copyrighted material by said member. Such copyrighted material may not be quoted, reposted, or taken out of context in whole or part by any other member or guest of Darkforum.com.

All displayed artistic expressions and impressions here-in are the property of the artists and df reserves he/she all copyrights.

Such material may not be published or in any way used without the permission of the member who has the copyright.

You will be warned or possibly banned without notice if you use any copyrighted material without the express permission of the copyright owner.

5. Above all, have fun!

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions, please PM me. Thank you!


Spamming: Engaging in the practice of sending unsolicited electronic messages. (advertising)

Trolling: On the Internet, a troll is a person who posts messages that create controversy or an angry response without adding content to the discussion, often intentionally. Though technically different from flaming, which is an unmistakable direct personal attack, trolls often resort to innuendo or misdirection in the pursuit of their objective, which is to create controversy for its own sake, discredit those with whom they disagree, or sabotage discussion by creating an intimidating atmosphere.

Flaming: Flaming is the practice of posting messages that are deliberately hostile and insulting to a discussion board. Such messages are called flames, and are often posted in response to flame bait.

A flame may have elements of a normal message, but is distinguished by its intent. A flame is never intended to be constructive, to further clarify a discussion, or to persuade other people. The motive for flaming is never dialectic, but rather social or psychological. Flamers are attempting to assert their authority, or establish a position of superiority. Occasionally, flamers merely wish to upset and offend other members of the forum, in which case they are trolls.

Just a note... you're poetry thread is yours, and yours alone. If there are comments you would like deleted from it, or even if you would like the whole thread deleted, all you have to do is send me a pm and let me know.

further info:


copyright laws
This is from the US Copyright Office site:

WHAT IS COPYRIGHT?
Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States (title 17, U.S. Code) to the authors of “original works of authorship,” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works. This protection is available to both published and unpublished works. Section 106 of the 1976 Copyright Act generally gives the owner of copyright the exclusive right to do and to authorize others to do the following:

To reproduce the work in copies or phonorecords;

To prepare derivative works based upon the work;

To distribute copies or phonorecords of the work to the public by sale or other transfer of ownership, or by rental, lease, or lending;

To perform the work publicly, in the case of literary, musical, dramatic, and choreographic works, pantomimes, and motion pictures and other audiovisual works;

To display the copyrighted work publicly, in the case of literary, musical, dramatic, and choreographic works, pantomimes, and pictorial, graphic, or sculptural works, including the individual images of a motion picture or other audiovisual work; and

In the case of sound recordings, to perform the work publicly by means of a digital audio transmission.

In addition, certain authors of works of visual art have the rights of attribution and integrity as described in section 106A of the 1976 Copyright Act. For further information, request Circular 40, “Copyright Registration for Works of the Visual Arts.”

It is illegal for anyone to violate any of the rights provided by the copyright law to the owner of copyright. These rights, however, are not unlimited in scope. Sections 107 through 121 of the 1976 Copyright Act establish limitations on these rights. In some cases, these limitations are specified exemptions from copyright liability. One major limitation is the doctrine of "fair use," which is given a statutory basis in section 107 of the 1976 Copyright Act. In other instances, the limitation takes the form of a "compulsory license" under which certain limited uses of copyrighted works are permitted upon payment of specified royalties and compliance with statutory conditions. For further information about the limitations of any of these rights, consult the copyright law or write to the Copyright Office.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHO CAN CLAIM COPYRIGHT
Copyright protection subsists from the time the work is created in fixed form. The copyright in the work of authorship immediately becomes the property of the author who created the work. Only the author or those deriving their rights through the author can rightfully claim copyright.

In the case of works made for hire, the employer and not the employee is considered to be the author. Section 101 of the copyright law defines a "work made for hire" as:

(1) a work prepared by an employee within the scope of his or her employment; or
(2) a work specially ordered or commissioned for use as:
a contribution to a collective work
a part of a motion picture or other audiovisual work
a translation
a supplementary work
a compilation
an instructional text
a test
answer material for a test
an atlas
if the parties expressly agree in a written instrument signed by them that the work shall be considered a work made for hire....

The authors of a joint work are co-owners of the copyright in the work, unless there is an agreement to the contrary.

Copyright in each separate contribution to a periodical or other collective work is distinct from copyright in the collective work as a whole and vests initially with the author of the contribution.


Two General Principles
Mere ownership of a book, manuscript, painting, or any other copy or phonorecord does not give the possessor the copyright. The law provides that transfer of ownership of any material object that embodies a protected work does not of itself convey any rights in the copyright.
Minors may claim copyright, but state laws may regulate the business dealings involving copyrights owned by minors. For information on relevant state laws, consult an attorney.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COPYRIGHT AND NATIONAL ORIGIN OF THE WORK
Copyright protection is available for all unpublished works, regardless of the nationality or domicile of the author.

Published works are eligible for copyright protection in the United States if any one of the following conditions is met:

On the date of first publication, one or more of the authors is a national or domiciliary of the United States, or is a national, domiciliary, or sovereign authority of a treaty party,* or is a stateless person wherever that person may be domiciled; or

* A treaty party is a country or intergovernmental organization other than the United States that is a party to an international agreement.


The work is first published in the United States or in a foreign nation that, on the date of first publication, is a treaty party. For purposes of this condition, a work that is published in the United States or a treaty party within 30 days after publication in a foreign nation that is not a treaty party shall be considered to be first published in the United States or such treaty party, as the case may be; or

The work is a sound recording that was first fixed in a treaty party; or

The work is a pictorial, graphic, or sculptural work that is incorporated in a building or other structure, or an architectural work that is embodied in a building and the building or structure is located in the United States or a treaty party; or

The work is first published by the United Nations or any of its specialized agencies, or by the Organization of American States; or

The work is a foreign work that was in the public domain in the United States prior to 1996 and its copyright was restored under the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA). Request Circular 38b, "Highlights of Copyright Amendments Contained in the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA-GATT)," for further information.

The work comes within the scope of a Presidential proclamation.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT WORKS ARE PROTECTED?
Copyright protects "original works of authorship" that are fixed in a tangible form of expression. The fixation need not be directly perceptible so long as it may be communicated with the aid of a machine or device. Copyrightable works include the following categories:

literary works;
musical works, including any accompanying words
dramatic works, including any accompanying music
pantomimes and choreographic works
pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works
motion pictures and other audiovisual works
sound recordings
architectural works
These categories should be viewed broadly. For example, computer programs and most "compilations" may be registered as "literary works"; maps and architectural plans may be registered as "pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works."


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT IS NOT PROTECTED BY COPYRIGHT?
Several categories of material are generally not eligible for federal copyright protection. These include among others:

Works that have not been fixed in a tangible form of expression (for example, choreographic works that have not been notated or recorded, or improvisational speeches or performances that have not been written or recorded)

Titles, names, short phrases, and slogans; familiar symbols or designs; mere variations of typographic ornamentation, lettering, or coloring; mere listings of ingredients or contents

Ideas, procedures, methods, systems, processes, concepts, principles, discoveries, or devices, as distinguished from a description, explanation, or illustration

Works consisting entirely of information that is common property and containing no original authorship (for example: standard calendars, height and weight charts, tape measures and rulers, and lists or tables taken from public documents or other common sources)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HOW TO SECURE A COPYRIGHT
Copyright Secured Automatically upon Creation
The way in which copyright protection is secured is frequently misunderstood. No publication or registration or other action in the Copyright Office is required to secure copyright. (See following Note.) There are, however, certain definite advantages to registration. See "Copyright Registration."

Copyright is secured automatically when the work is created, and a work is "created" when it is fixed in a copy or phonorecord for the first time. "Copies" are material objects from which a work can be read or visually perceived either directly or with the aid of a machine or device, such as books, manuscripts, sheet music, film, videotape, or microfilm. "Phonorecords" are material objects embodying fixations of sounds (excluding, by statutory definition, motion picture soundtracks), such as cassette tapes, CDs, or LPs. Thus, for example, a song (the "work") can be fixed in sheet music (" copies") or in phonograph disks (" phonorecords"), or both.

If a work is prepared over a period of time, the part of the work that is fixed on a particular date constitutes the created work as of that date.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PUBLICATION
Publication is no longer the key to obtaining federal copyright as it was under the Copyright Act of 1909.


Their site is located at:

http://www.copyright.gov


The page quoted from is here:
http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ1.html#wccc
(taken from the stories forum, thanks Jordyn)

and df's rule regarding plagiarism and copywrite:

Copyright – All material posted by a member are considered copyrighted and the property of said member. Such copyrighted material may not be quoted, reposted or taken without the expressed and written permission of said member. This includes any written or artistic expressions.

the sad thing is that most of the yahoos that come to the poetry section are too stupid to understand this stuff anyway....

internet plagiarism is so rampant and unnaddressed because it's usually viewed as pretty harmless because no profit generally comes from stealing anothers writing.. it's hard enough to get published in the first place.

can you really imagine hiring a lawyer, putting all the time and effort into a law suit and paying all the money for it to sue some stupid idiot probably aged between 15-24 yrs old?

etc, etc...

while this might be a serious offense, the repercussions of getting caught is still just a ban and once the theft has been committed, there's nothing anyone will really do.

no slight to you at all, or whitelily when she tried the same thing.. it's just... kinda pointless *shrugs*..

nice of you to post this anyway!

oh yea, last thing.. for any people who do want some sort of "real" protection, you can use sites like www.poetry.com (blegh! what a gay site, but still offers free copyright protection) or www.deviantart.com (pretty cool site.. i use it)..

Ban of all member accounts we know of, deletion of all writings here within our forums, and the undying hatred I have for plagarists. I will aggresively pursue any accusations. There will be no warnings if it is proven that you have plagarised a work. You will be immediately Banned. No questions asked. This site does not support plagarists nor do I. We welcome original works of art and IF you must post someone elses work we expect you to credit them and explain why you have posted it.

Simple really.

Prosecuting plagarism as best we can is in no way pointless.

I suppose I've never come across a site that has followed up on it before, so call me a skeptic, I guess. Again, no offense at all to the mods here.... it's greatly appreciated ...all the standards that are set here, but I just don't feel that it's safe to be enough for Me (personally) to post much of my work here.

Peace.

And that's your choice... thanks for the added info about poetry.com and deviantart.

The main point of this thread was just to make it very clear that if somebody posts a piece that they ripped off from somebody else, and it's found out about. It will in fact be the end of their days at darkforum.

I would think that would be obvious, but recently there have been a couple incidents of it. So... I'm just spreadin' the word...
