General Policy Statement
It is not our intention with this (policy) section to stop anyone from using, linking, copying, remixing, mashing, etc. any of the material on this site. Mostly this is just a better safe than sorry kinda thing, and a HUGE suggestion to link to this site. 99.9% of the time we're not going to care what you do with our stuff as long as you put a link to this site with it. That being said, we DO NOT want anyone passing off our work as their own, which is the real reason for this section. Influence/inspiration is one thing... Direct plagiarism is something completely different... It should also be known that our direct opinion on all forms of remixing/mashing is that it is purely complimentary and should be taken as flattery (as long as the original artist/creator's name has been included with the new creation). Enjoy!
