COMMUNITY GUIDELINES

Overview:

Tune Society relies on the artists and users of TuneSociety.com to conduct themselves in truthful, honest, trustworthy and honorable way. It’s the Golden Rule. This means that you treat the users of TuneSociety.com in the way that “you” want to be treated. Be truthful about who you are. Make sure that what you upload is legally yours, free and clear of all other copyright encumbrances or contracts. When you purchase a song, use it in the way that you have agreed to use it. When leaving feedback and comments on other people’s music, think carefully about what you want to say so that your words are honest about the music, but not critical of the person who created it.

We know that everyone is different. And we understand that there is a whole world out there with people who have different tastes, different likes and different opinions and definitions about what is “good” and what is not.

All we ask is that you stop and think about your decisions. Then make a choice to do what you’ve agreed to do.

Do the thing that benefits and helps others…not the thing that hurts other.

Decency Standards:

Licensing, Copyright & Impersonation Standards:

All of the audio recordings offered for licensing on TuneSociety.com are protected by copyrights.

If you think that Tune Society music is being used or licensed without proper authorization,  please click on the “Report Abuse” link, at the bottom of the home page, and report it to us immediately. Only the authorized owner of a song or other audio recordings is allowed to upload and sell their work on Tune Society. If you believe the stated owner/artist does not have authorization to sell a specific song on TuneSociety.com, please click on the “Report Abuse” link, at the bottom of the home page, and  report it to us immediately. Licensing, copyright, impersonation and misrepresenting ownership violations are serious legal issues that Tune Society follows up on to protect the integrity of the Tune Society library and its artists.
