The Legal Lowdown on the information in the DeLorean Mailing List


This mailing list is in no way affiliated with any DeLorean owners group or any DeLorean service/parts facility. With the spirit of cooperation and the exchange of publicly available information in mind, it is hoped that this list will become an asset to all those that have an interest in the DeLorean.

Postings to the DELOREAN MAILING LIST are the opinions of the author and not necessarily those of the list moderator (David Swingle et al) or his Internet Service Provider(s). The list moderator makes every effort to screen out false, misleading, and negative postings, but it is up to you, the reader of the DELOREAN MAILING LIST, to realize that nothing should be taken as actual fact without reseach and investigation of your own. Authors of messages to the DELOREAN MAILING LIST are also reminded to consider the ramifications of posting inaccurate information. While everyone (in the United States, at least) is entitled to their own opinion and the right of free speech, you still cannot yell "Fire!" in a crowded theatre. Any maintenance techniques or possible modifications (including, but not limited to, part substitution) published in the DELOREAN MAILING LIST or DMC-News, the 'zine should be weighed against conventional, traditional and generally accepted techniques and modifications. Neither the list moderator (David Swingle et al) nor his Internet Service Provider(s) should be considered the authority on maintaining or improving DeLoreans and the views expressed are those of the author of the message posted or procedure described and does not constitute endorsement of it by the moderator or his Internet Service Provider(s). Prudent owners should consider possible techniques or modifications in light of common sense compromises among economy, longevity, performance, reliablility, driveability, legality and resale value. Failure to consider any of the above could result in either harm to your DeLorean, your pocketbook or yourself. The list moderator and his Internet Service Provider(s) will not assume liability for any such consequences. Think before you act. Just as opening a software package indicates your agreement to the terms of the licensing agreement, posting a message to the DELOREAN MAILING LIST, subscribing to either the "live" or "digest" version, or accessing the archives indicates that you have read, understand and agree with the disclaimer above.


The messages sent to this list constitute private correspondence by and between members of a closed community. As such, the copyright for EVERYTHING that ANYONE posts lies with them. PERIOD. This is *NOT* a bulletin board system, where consent for further redistribution is implied by nature of the the system; it's PRIVATE. If you wish to use something written by someone on the list, you must first seek their permission unless they specifically grant the right in that specific posting to reprint it at will. And, in general, it is a VERY GOOD idea to *CREDIT* someone if you use something by permission "copyright xxxx Joe Schmoe, used by permission" to keep *SOMEONE ELSE* from screwing up down the line. Remember, when you read something on this list: what you are reading belongs to whoever wrote it. They may have plans to publish it further themselves. They may want to keep it "private" (i.e. just for list member use). They may not care what gets done with it. It's still theirs, and before re-use, permission must be obtained. Please respect people's rights, even if they don't make a big deal about it.
