Most objects in our daily life are protected by their each and own rights including copy rights, trademark rights, and portrait rights. Some are registered to the Patent Office, which creates farther legal rights to an independent object.
It is very important that all Cafetalk users become aware of this crucial issue before enjoying our Cafetalk service. In this page, we would like you to understand our policy concerning all legal rights to the possible lesson materials.
All composed works, including literature, art, music, photography, film, computer program and such, are automatically and simultaneously copyrighted when created.
Despite some few rare cases depending on each nation’s copyright laws, most created objects are strictly copyrighted. Thus, one needs an author’s permission when using a copyrighted material for a different purpose. This applies for all commercial and non-commercial activities.
Most of these rights have not been stipulated as a legitimate law. Therefore, the precedent cases and lawsuits are highly deliberated when legally punishing possible violations. Cafetalk Secretariat would like to make clear that we have no legal rights or authority to judge whether independent material usages are legitimate or not.
Moreover, if and when a third party including the author of a material file a lawsuit against the Cafetalk users, Cafetalk will neither participate nor compensate. Please be aware that you will be responsible of the possible costs.
Furthermore, if and when we receive a report from an author concerning a violation to its rights, or an request for cooperation from the investigators, we may release the Cafetalk user’s personal information under a legitimate circumstances.
