Publishing Terms and Conditions
By submitting content to the NMK website you are deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions:
1) Your Copyright
Any content submitted to the NMK site remains the intellectual property of the author or copyright holder (which means that you can re-publish your content or adaptations of your content elsewhere). However, by submitting content to the NMK website you grant permission for NMK to publish your content on the NMK website and to modify, adapt, edit, reproduce and create derivative works based on your content (for example, to publish an excerpt in NMK email newsletters), without payment to the author or copyright holder, in perpetuity. (See disclaimer below.)
To the maximum extent permitted at law, NMK holds the author or copyright holder responsible for any defamatory or libellous remarks made in the content they submit (see disclaimer below). Libel means to defame, or take away a good name. Libel can be proven even when the plaintiff is referred to indirectly. The tests of defamation include: hatred, ridicule or contempt; causing the subject to be shunned or avoided; 'lowering a person in the estimation of right-minded people'; and - most relevant here - implying a lack of qualification, knowledge, skill, capacity, judgement or efficiency to conduct business. Malicious falsehood means the publication of a false statement that damages a person. In criminal defamatory libel one publication could be the subject of both civil and criminal proceedings and the defamer could be made to pay damages.
i) Where you are invited to submit any contribution to NMK (including any text or graphics) you warrant that your contribution:
ii) is your own original work and that you have the right to make it available to NMK for publication on the NMK website and other purposes outlined above; and
iii) is not defamatory; and
iv) does not infringe any law; and
v) you indemnify NMK/The University of Westminster against all legal fees, damages and other expenses that may be incurred by NMK/The University of Westminster as a result of your breach of the above warranty.
4) Removal of content
NMK has the right to remove content from the NMK website at any time without advance notice or explanation.
NMK is not legally bound to remove content (that is published on the NMK website) at the request of the author or copyright holder. However, it is our policy to do so; if you would like your content to be removed from the NMK website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, with a note explaining the reasons for your request.
