Terms of Use

Note: As of January 16, 2012, this site is owned by LS News Group/Larry Sinclair LLC. I am the founder, chairman, and 100 percent owner of /LS News Group/Larry Sinclair LLC.

We want you to enjoy using LS News Group (LSNG)/Larry Sinclair LLC which includes LSNewsGroup.com; LarrySinclair.org; LarrySinclair.info; LarrySinclair.com and LarrySinclair.net (collectively known as “LSNG). We also want you to obey the rules while you’re here and not interfere unduly with anyone else’s enjoyment of the site. By using this site you agree to be bound by these terms of use, as amended, as well as the terms and conditions of LSNGs  privacy policy, which is incorporated by reference herein.

Comments

LSNG allows you to post comments on the site, provided that you first register to do so with a valid e-mail address. Comment registration is now closed.

LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC may allow as much or as little opportunity for registration as it chooses, in its absolute discretion, and it may close particular comment threads or discontinue its general policy of allowing comments at any time. By registering to post comments, you warrant that you are at least 18 years old and that you are solely responsible for your account’s activity.

LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC reserves the right to delete your comments or revoke your registration for any reason whatsoever. Rarely will LSNG do so simply because we disagree with you. LSNG will, however, usually do so if you post something that is, in our opinion, (a) off-topic; (b) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate these terms of use or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (c) “spam,” i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. LSNG may exercise these rights ourself and/or may delegate them to employees and/or contractors.

LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC does not own your comments; LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC expressly disclaims any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on any LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC; its employees; representatives including but not limited to independent contractors and Larry Sinclair, from any and all liability that may result from those postings. You further agree to grant LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sub-licenseable and transferable license to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, or otherwise distribute your comments without limitation, as well as to make such additional uses of them as may be needed by LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC.

In short, you’re LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC’s guest here. We welcome your participation, but if you abuse our hospitality, don’t be surprised if you are shown the door.

Trackbacks

LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC allows third-party websites to send trackbacks to our posts, but LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC may, in its absolute discretion, disable this option for particular posts or discontinue our general policy of allowing trackbacks at any time.

LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC reserves the right to delete trackbacks for any reason. As with comments, we usually won’t delete a trackback merely because we disagree with the post it comes from. LSNG/Larry Sinclair LLC will, however, usually delete trackbacks from posts that are, in our opinion, (a) off-topic; (b) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violate or encourage others to violate these terms of use or any law, including intellectual property laws; (c) “spam,” i.e., attempts to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. LSNG will also usually delete trackbacks from posts that do not reference the post on LSNG sites that they are tracking back to.

  • A description of the nature and exact location of the content that you claim to infringe your copyright, in sufficient detail to permit Automattic to find and positively identify that content; for example we require a link to the specific blog post (not just the name of the blog) that contains the content and a description of which specific portion of the blog post – an image, a link, the text, etc – your complaint refers to;
  • Your name, address, telephone number and email address; and
  • A statement by you:  (a) that you believe in good faith that the use of the content that you claim to infringe your copyright is not authorized by law, or by the copyright owner or such owner’s agent; (b) that all of the information contained in your Infringement Notice is accurate, and (c) under penalty of perjury, that you are either the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf.
