Terms of Use, Copyright, and Legal Notices

Agreement to Terms of Use. By using this web site, you agree to the following Terms of Use. If you do not agree with these terms, please promptly discontinue use of the web site and do not read or download any further information from the web site.

You must abide by all of the provisions in these Terms of Use in order to remain an authorized user of this web site. You are wholly and solely responsible for your use of this web site and for ensuring that your use complies fully with these Terms of Use. If any information from this web site is retained on your computer, you are also responsible for the use of that information by other users of your computer. If you transmit any information from this web site to another computer or storage device, you are also responsible for the use of that information by users of that other computer or storage device.

Unauthorized users or users whose activity appears to violate these terms of use may have access to this web site curtailed or denied, without prior warning. Ted Crane shall determine, whether actual or proposed usage is authorized and acceptable; the criteria for this determination may not be disclosed.

If the unauthorized usage or attempted usage continues after access has been curtailed or denied, even if the usage is not via the same client computer (other potential access might include, but is not limited to, access via a different computer or computers, access via a proxy service, access via a masking service, or access via a computer provided for use by the public), may be subject to a penalty fee. These fees will be calculated using web server logs, whether or not any useful information is supplied to the unauthorized user in response to that access. The fees will not be less than the minimum of (a) any fee applied to any other user of this web site or (b) $10 per web page accessed, per access/hit, plus $1 per other access (including but not limited to photographs, graphic element) per access/hit.

Penalty fees are due when invoiced; delivery of an invoice via the United States Postal Service is sufficient notification that a penalty fee has been applied and is due. No other, prior notification is required before a penalty fee may be applied.

If you have a specific disagreement with these terms, or a helpful suggestion about how they might be changed to better accomodate your usage, you are welcome to politely address it in writing via the contact address, below; sorry, no response is guaranteed.

Terms of Use. You may view and download information from this web site for your personal, non-commercial use, as long as you retain with it the information regarding proprietary rights, including copyright notices, and as long as your use complies with these Terms of Use. You may not modify or attempt to modify the information contained in the web site, either at the host of the web site or in a downloaded copy, except by using tools explicitly provided on the web site for public usage.

You must view this web site manually. You may not utilize any automated software, technique, method, tool, or other means of access for the purpose of downloading significant portions of the web site for later, off-line use, except as described in the following paragraph. You may not create tools that allow or facilitate the viewing of information presented by this web site via a different user interface. In other words, the only permitted use of this web site and its information, is to view the information via the tools and user interface provided by this web site.

The only permitted use of automated web page access tools is for the purpose of building a searchable public index to the web site, but the right to access and include this web site in public indices is only granted to recognized, publically-accessable search engine maintainers. You are specifically prohibited from automatically accessing this web site in order to build private copies or indices of the web site. If you would like a determination whether the right to apply automated web page access tools to this web site is granted to you, you are welcome to politely address your request in writing via the contact address, below.

You may not make use of any addresses presented on this web site, including but not limited to Physical/Postal Addresses, Telephone Addresses, and Email Addresses, to create, continue, correct, add to, enhance, or otherwise support any activities related to mailing lists, mass contact, unsolicited contact, commercial contact, or any other kind of contact with an individual or organization whose address is presented on this web site, except as provided in the following paragraph. You may not make use of any addresses presented on this web site to facilitate any campaign, including but not limited to political, personal, or commercial campaigns, directed in favor or against any entity, including but not limited to persons, groups, organizations, companies, or governments, except as provided in the follow paragraph.

The only permitted use of addresses presented on the web site is to allow immediate, person-to-person communication between you and one person or organization; this contact is only allowed via tools explicitly provided on the web site. When communicating using these tools, you must identify yourself correctly and provide a way for the contacted person or organization to verify this identification and return contact at their discretion. If the contacted person or organization requests that you do not contact them again, you must honor this request. Abusive contact of any kind is not permitted. Personal contact which is part of an campaign to contact multiple recipients is subject to the restrictions described elsewhere in this document. You may, however, contact multiple recipients for booking purposes: artists contacting presenters and presenters contacting artists.

To repeat an important point from the above paragraphs, for emphasis: Automated harvesting of Email information is strictly prohibited. Manual use of Email information is permitted only for the purpose of immediate person-to-person contact, and is permitted only when the tools provided on the web site are used. Reverse-engineering these tools in order to identify or collect Email addresses, including examining the source code, is not permitted. This site does not try to define what spam is or is not -- but using information on this web site to build lists for mass mailings is not permitted.

You may not use any information or tools on this web site for the transmission of illegal software, illegal pornography, spamming, linkspamming, or to support distribution lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included. You may not use any information or tools on this web site to transmit any unlawful, harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene or otherwise objectionable material of any kind or nature.
