Terms of Service

Ama's Originals Terms of Service lay out some of the legal aspects.

Ama's Originals Terms of Service is one of those "legal" things that, luckily, I don't have to deal with. Ok, I have to make sure I hold up my end. Thankfully, LaughingBear takes care of me.

This is another of those really long pages that most folks tl;dr (Too Long; Didn't Read). But it's here, and accessing the site means you have agreed.

Practically every web site must have a Terms of Service page these days. Why? Simply because there are so many people out there that will do their very best to take advantage of any situation. We're already somewhat familiar with many of our customers, at least in the early stages. We have no issues with nor inability to trust any of you. It's for those that come in future (hopefully) that we may not know, that this kind of page may be necessary.

LaughingBear has searched the web for all the varieties of ToS in order to get an idea what we need here. I, Ama am SO very grateful that he has done this for me! Watching him deal with the frustration and headache of this whole web thing makes me appreciate him even more!

I can't stand reading through these things, but LaughingBear has taken a slightly different approach. Below, you'll see the various sections of (boring) legalese. Well, that's on the left side. The right side is something I've never seen. He calls it: Simply Put. He has turned the legalese into shorter, more simple language that even I can understand!

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by, including Digital Content and User Created Content, infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on this website are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow to locate the material on the Site; (d) the name, address, telephone number and e-mail address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
