3. Control of Content
soomusicproject.ca is not responsible for community-driven content posted on soomusicproject.ca and we do not control the messages, information or files delivered to the site, unless otherwise noted therein.

Message Boards and Comments
soomusicproject.ca includes message boards and comment sections on band, musician and venue profiles to allow feedback and interaction between users. (Note: profile owners have the ability to disable public comments). soomusicproject.ca and its operators cannot be held responsible for the content of any message or comment.

soomusicproject.ca compiles event listings, some or all of which may, at our discretion, be shared with other print or online publications such as community newspapers or other local websites.

Audio Content

Registered users have the ability to upload audio content in the form of MP3 files. This service is intended to allow bands and musicians to provide audio samples of their own music for preview and, when applicable, download by other soomusicproject.ca users. By default, audio files are only available as �streaming� content. However, users have the ability to allow the files to be downloaded directly from soomusicproject.ca. Users should be aware that even where the download option has been disabled, this does not guarantee that the streaming audio content may not be otherwise captured or copied.

In connection with user submissions, you agree that you will not submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner and the necessary consents from any individuals whose personally identifiable information is contained in such material to post the material and to grant soomusicproject.ca all of the license rights granted herein.

For clarity, you retain all of your ownership rights in your user submissions. However, by submitting user submissions to soomusicproject.ca, you hereby grant soomusicproject.ca a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the user submissions in connection with soomusicproject.ca, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the soomusicproject.ca website.
