Copyright and Trademark Infringement Policy and Notification Procedure: talktotheworld.com does not own the musical compositions, sound recordings, art or other written or visual images (collectively, the "Content") posted by third parties to the Website. All Content is posted by an individual, group or company (collectively, the "Author") who has represented and warranted to talktotheworld.com that, among other things, neither the Content nor the names, trademarks and service marks under which Content is promoted (collectively, the "Name") infringes any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights, rights of publicity or privacy, or moral rights.
Since talktotheworld.com is not in a position to determine who has the prevailing claim to use any particular Content or Name posted to the Website, its policy on such matters is that they be resolved directly by the parties alleging misuse of their Content and/or Name (the "Complainants") and the Authors. We recommend that Complainants immediately notify Authors about allegations of infringement by going to the Author's page on the Website, clicking the Contact link and contacting the Author directly. It has been talktotheworld.com’s experience that most Authors are honest and responsible citizens who may not realize they are engaged in infringing activities. Typically, once notified of a claim, Authors voluntarily cease using such infringing Content and/or Name on the Website and elsewhere.
