    theMouthPiece.com presents for you a . .. . Copyright Issues Fact Sheet

    What is this new Fact Sheet and Copyright FAQ information all about?

    Many threads on theMouthPiece.com discuss the extremely complex subject of Copyright and its many related issues. It is all too apparent that many of us are confused by the governance and laws relating to copyright and the tMP Team felt that we should put together a new tMP Fact Sheet that is freely available to all tMP visitors and members which will hopefully, in plain English, help us understand some of the ins and outs of UK Copyright law. This FAQ and fact sheet has been compiled with the fantastic help and support of several tMP members who are:

    • Roger Thorne
    • Dave Payn
    • Peter Bale

    Welcome back!

    Well... after much trouble and strife, and what seems an age - at long last we're back.

    Sincere apologies to you all for the major outage, but you'll be pleased to know we are running on a new server, with new software and there will be no more security issues, or virus's for anyone - we're back, and we're clean.

    You will most likely notice that we are on a new version of the software that powers tMP, which is the very latest incarnation of vBulletin vB 4.1.5 - so you might have to take some time to familiarise yourselves with the controls and settings are etc... I am still working my way through it all and finding this out by the way!

    If you have any issues, or if you you spot something that is missing from before or is currently not working well, please post this in the How-to forum, and we will do our best to fix it - though given the items we already have listed to fix, this might take a little time.

    So, many thanks to you all for hanging in there, and my sincere apologies for the outage.

    To continue to the forums, click on the 'Forum' tab in the bar near the top of the screen, or follow this link.
