All writing, poems and other figments of my imagi­na­tion that make up the content of this website (“karaoke poetry” and “karaoke​po​etry.com”) have been written over a number of years by me, Boz Cappie. I claim copyright over all material produced by myself and published on this website under the relevant inter­na­tional copyright laws and the appro­priate copyright laws pertaining to the country in which you are viewing this website. © copyright 1979-2009 Boz Cappie.

If you would like to use any of my poems, other pieces of writing or graphics (or any excerpts thereof) for any purpose, you must first obtain my permis­sion to do so. You can contact me using the contact page provided on this website. I reserve the right to refuse permission.

Where excerpts or content from other sources have been used, these will be indicated as such and acknowl­edged at the end of that partic­ular piece of writing.

Disclaimer

Karaoke poetry is run purely for the purposes of me showing off my writing in the probably futile hope that one day you might like a book if I ever get around to compiling and publishing one. I’ll add to it as often as I can find time to, which may not be that often. Please don’t expect updates every day or even every week, as it’s not going to happen.

No liability is accepted for the failure of any of the poems, writing, graphics or other figments of imagi­na­tion published on this website to perform to any expected or other­wise standards of writing, grammar or ideas. Ideas and concepts presented in karaoke​po​etry.com (“karaoke poetry”) may alter your thinking or it may not. I cannot be held respon­sible for anything that you may say, write or do after visiting this website and cannot be held liable for any actions you may or may not perform as a result of your visit. You visit this website at your own risk and acknowl­edge that by remaining on the site. If you don’t want to accept these terms then please leave the site now.

Any details you give in order to register will be immedi­ately forgotten, so if you forget your password, then we’ll have to rely on any existing WordPress function to get it back.

I get really pissed off with spam, so I’m not going to expose you to it if you sign up. I might send you irreg­ular updates on what’s happening to the site, but your signing up to the rss feed should take care of that, anyway.

If you sign up to post comments, please keep them relevant to my works because, hey! it’s all about me anyway.

I reserve the right to remove any comments made at any time for any reason whatsoever.

Karaoke poetry trademark & copyright claim

I claim copyright and trade­mark rights over the phrase “karaoke poetry” under inter­na­tional trade­mark law. I have been using the words “karaoke poetry” to describe a poetry form since 1998, and since 2003 I have regis­tered and used the domain name “karaoke​po​etry.com”. The fact that this website is viewable in the country in which you are currently domiciled estab­lishes, under national and inter­na­tional law, my copyright and trade­mark claims for that partic­ular country, regard­less of which country it may be.

I am more than happy to give permis­sion to let others use the term “karaoke poetry” for partic­ular purposes, but only on condi­tion that permis­sion is sought and given. Please use the contact page to make a request.
