Copyright Code of Conduct
Have you ever wondered what actions you are permitted to do in connection with a photo, video, or audio, or a text document and what actions constitute a copyright violation? Well, you should.
First of all, it is the policy of ShowNearby Pte Ltd. to respect the legitimate rights of artists and creators of copyrighted works.
Second, posting copyright infringing content can lead to the termination of your account.
Finally, you could be sued for monetary damages if a copyright owner takes you to court.
We hope you will work with us to keep our community a creative and legal experience for everyone. Here are some guidelines to help you determine whether posting material is legal or whether it infringes someone else’s copyright.
How to make sure the Content you post does not infringe
The best way to ensure the material you upload doesn’t infringe someone else’s copyright is to simply create your own original work using your skills, imagination and creativity. If it’s all yours, you never have to worry about the copyright infringement – you own it! ShowNearby encourages you to create and post your own works so that others can enjoy them.
Make sure that your work is really ALL yours. For example, if your video uses an audio track of a sound recording owned by a record label, your video infringes the copyright of the record label, unless you received permission from that label. If we receive a notice from that record label, we will disable your folder which contains the infringed content.
