All writ­ing, poems and oth­er fig­ments of my imag­i­na­tion that make up the con­tent of this web­site (“karaoke poet­ry” and “karaokepoetry.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 1979–2018 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 karaokepoetry.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.

Subscribing and posting

If you wish to post a com­ment, you must first reg­is­ter to do so. 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. Any infor­ma­tion need­ed to sign up will be kept pri­vate and won’t be sold, giv­en away, exchanged or passed onto to any­one else or any oth­er organ­i­sa­tion. 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. If you start post­ing com­ments that I con­sid­er to be spam or offen­sive, you will be barred from post­ing with­out any cor­re­spon­dence being entered into. 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 “karaokepoetry.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.
