That's the copyright notice in the footer of TMC.

It seems to say that copyright of everything posted is either granted, or even transferred to Steve Brooks.

Profile of Steve Brooks

I find it very odd that you joined this website 12 years ago and waited until today (May 12, 2018) to post anything. That's fine of course, but everything you are posting has nothing whatsoever to do with magic but rather critical observations by you concerning the technical aspects of my website including our rules and policies. In addition you are inquiring about information related to the technical backend of this website. Very strange indeed.

Having said all of that you agreed to these conditions when you joined my forum and confirmed you had read our rules, policies, etc.

You can find those topics Here!

Every member here is required to read our terms and agree to said terms before being allowed to join.

Specifically in A few rules to remember/Café etiquette you will find the following...

Postings/Disclaimer & Copyright information:

Although we make a sincere effort to monitor and or review discussions

You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless The Magic Café, Steve Brooks, Steve Brooks Magic, The Magic Bakery and their agents with respect to ANY claim based upon ANY POST or MESSAGE you may make.

The views and opinions expressed on this web site are soley those of the original authors and other contributors. We are not responsible or liable for any claim arising from the content of said views, discussions or postings. Nor will we be held responsible or liable for any error, omission, falsehood, slander, libel, defamation, obscenity, profanity, pornography, danger or inaccuracy contained in information within the discussions or postings on this site. We reserve the right to remove and or delete any post, at any time, with no reason given.

In no event shall either The Magic Café, Steve Brooks, Steve Brooks Magic or its affiliated or related entities be responsible or liable to any person or entity whatsoever (including, without limitation, persons who may use or rely on such data/materials, information or recommendations obtained from this site, or persons to whom such data/materials may be furnished) for any loss, damage (whether actual, consequential, punitive or otherwise), injury, claim, liability or other cause of any kind or character whatsoever based upon or resulting from any data/material provided by or obtained from this site; whether resulting from errors in or omissions from such material, any use of such material by third party, the content of any such material or otherwise.

We also reserve the right to reveal whatever information we know about you in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.
Please know that we will fully cooperate with any law enforcement agency or court orders requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting or transmitting any unlawful, obscene, scandalous, defamatory, threatening, libelous, pornographic, profane, inflammatory, or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law.

In addition, postings made on this website are considered to be contributions (donations) and given to this site free of charge, and as such automatically become the publishing property of The Magic Café, Steve Brooks, The Magic Bakery, and/or Steve Brooks Magic. No kind of royalties, fees or other monetary considerations of any kind are promised, expressed or implied to authors of said postings. Members who make such postings do so of their own free will.

However, that is not to say you do not own the intellectual property rights to perhaps an original idea or concept contained within said post/article (which you of course reserve the right to market at some later date) you may be discussing here. Steve Brooks, The Magic Café, The Magic Bakery and/or Steve Brooks Magic simply owns that particular article being posted, and may freely use as we see fit any said article/post in any publishing projects (e.g, Blogs, Books, compilations, manuscripts, eBooks, etc) now or in the future associated with The Magic Café, The Magic Bakery, Steve Brooks and/or Steve Brooks Magic be it on or off this website.

Please remember that the entire contents of this web site © Copyright 2001-2018 Steve Brooks. All rights reserved.

Commercial use, publicity or advertising use, or republication in any form will be treated as an infringement absent written authorization. In other words, no portion of this web site, including text and images, may be used in any manner without the express written consent of the site owner, Steve Brooks.

Having said all that, if you are really concerned about your material, it's probably not a good idea to post it on The Magic Café or anywhere else in cyberspace for that matter.

Finally, the Magic Café requires that you do not make posts or submit to or publish through these Forums or otherwise make available on this Site any content, or act in a way, which in our opinion:

  • (A) libels, defames, invades privacy, stalks, is obscene, pornographic, racist, abusive, harassing, threatening or offensive;
  • (B) disparages, criticizes, belittles, parodies or otherwise portrays in a negative light any person appearing in the content;
  • (C) seeks to exploit or harm children by exposing them to inappropriate content, asking for personally identifiable details or otherwise;
  • (D) infringes any intellectual property or other right of any entity or person, including violating anyone's copyrights or trademarks or their rights of publicity;
  • (E) violates any law or may be considered to violate any law;
  • (F) advocates or promotes illegal activity;
  • (G) impersonates or misrepresents your connection to any other entity or person or otherwise manipulates headers or identifiers to disguise the origin of the content;
  • (H) includes programs which contain viruses, worms and/or 'Trojan horses' or any other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, overload, collapse, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications;
  • (I) disrupts the normal flow of dialogue, causes a screen to scroll faster than other users are able to type, or otherwise act in a way which affects the ability of other people to engage in real time activities via the Site;
  • (J) copies any other pages or images on this Site except with appropriate authority;
  • (K) includes MP3 format files;
  • (L) amounts to a 'pyramid' or similar scheme;
  • (M) disobeys any policy or regulations established from time to time regarding use of this Site or any networks connected to this Site;
  • (N) contains links to other sites that contain the kind of content, which falls within the descriptions set out at (A) to (M) above.

Please know that the above rules are not up for debate or discussion. When you become a member of The Magic Café you agree to adhere and follow all the rules and policies we have here and it is your responsibility to know and understand these rules. Further, we (The Magic Café/Steve Brooks Magic) reserves the right to change or ammend these rules at any time and with no notice given, so members are encouraged to check here often for any possible updates, additions or changes to the above written policies.

Finally, If you have a problem following the rules here, please exit stage left, thank you very much. There are other discussion forums/boards on the net that allow childish behavior and I suggest you pay them a visit at your earliest convenience.
