Create, upload and share
Pitchweight enables you to express yourself through your sounds, and lets you share those sounds across the web. So, be creative, be expressive and let the world know how awesome you are. But remember – only share sounds that you have created yourself and have permission to share.
Don't upload things that aren't yours to upload
Uploading and sharing means you must always be 100% certain that you are the creator of what you're uploading, or have permission from all relevant rights holders. Anyone who repeatedly uploads other people's content risks having their account suspended or terminated.
Don't use someone else's name
Please don't register accounts in the name of another person, or using someone else's trademark, even if this is meant as a tribute. If you feel that someone is impersonating you on Pitchweight, or is infringing your trademark, you can tell us about it by sending an email.
Don't rant, flame, or troll
Inappropriate behaviour, including abusive, defamatory, obscene, racist or offensive comments, will put you at risk of having your account suspended or terminated.
Using sounds or comments to promote other products or services can be considered as spam and isn't welcome on Pitchweight.
If you break these rules
We take these rules seriously, and expect you to as well. If you break these rules we will take action. If we receive notification from a rights holder that any sounds, text or images in your account infringe their copyright, or if we believe that your behaviour is inappropriate, we will send you a warning. If we have to send you more than two of these warnings, we will suspend your account. In the most extreme cases, we may suspend your account without warning.
Tell us about it
Remember, we want Pitchweight to be a community where everyone feels comfortable and respected - it's up to all of us to make sure this happens.
To Sum It Up
Basically, be nice and respect the law. In most cases, we'll send you a warning before we take other measures and we'll always try to act reasonably. We think this is fair but if you don't agree, maybe Pitchweight is not the place for you.
These guidelines have been written down to ensure that everyone within the community has the experience they want. We're not trying to set up rules and regulations for exactly how you should and shouldn't act but rather to make clear that this should be a place of respect between people and a place for responsible content posting.
We may change these Community Guidelines from time to time, so please be sure to check back here every so often for any updates.
