Following Asha’s lead, I’m finally posting this. I’ve backdated this post so it does not interfere with the flow of items on the site, and will post a link to this on the home page and every archive page.
Thanks to Melanie for helping me get this done.
SEARCHBLOG TERMS OF SERVICE
Searchblog is owned, operated and edited by John Battelle. By accessing, using, and/or submitting material to Searchblog, you agree to abide by these terms of service, including any modifications that may occur to the terms in the future. All modifications will be posted in this document.
All content published on Searchblog becomes the shared property of Searchblog and the respective author.
Searchblog content is available under a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial license. As such, anyone can reproduce Searchblog content provided that the reproduction is for personal use and is non-commercial in nature, and the reproduction acknowledges Searchblog as the original source of the material either by including a link back to the original Searchblog post, or by including the following notice:
Content originally appeared on Searchblog (http://www.searchblog.com), and is made available through a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/2.5/).
For more information about the Creative Commons license, read the Creative Commons FAQ. If you’re in doubt about fair use, please contact the Searchblog editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a reader’s submission is featured in a derivative work produced by Searchblog, Searchblog will, in good faith, attribute the submission to the reader (as the reader’s name appears on Searchblog) and attempt to contact the reader to let him or her know, but is not obligated to do so.
While Searchblog publishes what we hope is accurate and fair commentary, all Searchblog content is made available on an as-is basis, with no warrantees expressed or implied. As such, readers use any advice found on Searchblog at their own risk.
All content published on Searchblog is subject to editing or deletion. Opinions expressed on Searchblog are not necessarily those of the editor.
Searchblog reserves the right to restrict site access for any reason. Examples of inappropriate use include abusive behavior, posting the full text of copyrighted material without permission, and comment and/or trackback spam.
Searchblog will not sell, distribute, or reveal readers’ email addresses or other personal information without their consent.
In general, when publishing reader-submitted material, Searchblog will identify the reader by first name only and, if the reader desires, a link to the reader’s blog or website. If the reader is already in the public sphere (that is, the reader is well-known or has a blog or website that reveals the reader’s identity), Searchblog may publish the reader’s full name. If, in the submission, the reader requests first name-only identification, anonymity, or the use of a pseudonym, Searchblog will respect the request.
Finally, these terms are subject to revision, any revision will be noted on this page.
