Written material (reviews, interviews and opinion pieces)
All written material on this site is the intellectual property of the person named as its author, unless explicitly stated as being otherwise. In other words, if you copy it, you’re stealing, and that sucks. However …
As noted at the bottom of the page, all written material on this site is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial No Derivative Work License. So, basically, you’re welcome – nay, encouraged – to republish sections of it elsewhere, provided that you credit the original author and link back to the page where it came from.
If you’re confused as to what that means in real terms, drop us a line using the contact page, let us know the piece of writing you’re interested in, and we’ll work something out. Any breach of this license, on the other hand, will be prosecuted with the full strength of all applicable laws.
All written material on this site represents the opinion of the person named as its author. And that’s all it is, folks – an opinion. Don’t email us because one of our writers hates your favourite band. For one thing, we understand that there will never be universal agreement on the relative virtues of artists and their music. For another, life is too short. Seriously.
All recording sleeve art – as well as promotional images of bands, artists and products – is used presumptively under the Fair Use provisions of UK copyright legislation. The rationale here is that we’re using those images to promote and review the intellectual property or product in question, and hence are legally permitted to use the images as we are not profiting directly from doing so.
Of course, if you have a problem with an image for which you are the copyright holder being used on this site, please contact us, and we will remove it as soon as possible.
Some other images – mostly but not exclusively photographs of bands or artists performing or being interviewed – are copyright of the person who captured the image, and will be denoted as such. Any image credited to The Dreaded Press itself can be considered to be covered by the afore-mentioned Creative Commons license.
The Dreaded Press welcomes your opinions and comments as a presumably informed and equally music-obsessed member of the human race. However, please read the comments policy before you submit those opinions – because we’ll have assumed you have done so for legal purposes, and it’ll save a lot of angst and embarrassment in the long run.
