Terms of Use

Welcome to Weblogs at 4J!

We don’t mean to turn you off from blogging by immediately
inundating you with legalese, but we need to make clear our respective
rights and responsibilities related to this service. So, the Eugene
School District 4J ( the “District” ) offers these blogging
services ( the “Services” ) to you subject to the terms and conditions of
use ( “Terms” ) contained herein. By accessing, creating or contributing
to any blogs hosted at http://blogs.4j.lane.edu/, and in
consideration for the Services we provide to you, you agree to abide by
these Terms. Please read them carefully before posting to or creating
any blog.

1. Rights in the Content You Submit

Default Creative Commons Public License

Unless you specify otherwise, any and all works of authorship
copyrightable by you and posted by you to any blog ( “Content” ) are
submitted under the terms of an Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons
Public License. Under this license, you permit anyone to copy,
distribute, display and perform your Content, royalty-free, on the
condition that they credit your authorship each time they do so. You
also permit others to distribute derivative works of your Content, but
only if they do so under the same Attribution-ShareAlike license that
governs your original Content.

Please read the full text of the Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons Public License.

Amongst other things, this license permits RSS aggregators to copy,
distribute, display and perform any Content on your blog that you
syndicate using RSS. All Content on your blog is syndicated for RSS
aggregation unless you change your settings to indicate otherwise.

Option for More Restrictive License Terms

If you prefer to offer your Content on more restrictive terms, you
may do so as follows:

For Content you submit to your own blog, remove the Creative Commons
logo from your blog template (contact us if you require instructions).

For Content you submit to a blog other than your own, label your
submission with a full copyright notice, i.e., your name, the word
“copyright” or “@” symbol and the year of first publication.

By posting your Content using the Services, you are granting the
District a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, and worldwide license to use
your Content in connection with the operation of the Services,
including, without limitation, the license rights to copy, distribute,
transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit,
translate and reformat your Content, and/or to incorporate it into a
collective work.

Attribution

When publicly displaying, publicly performing, reproducing or
distributing copies of your Content, or Content as incorporated into a
collective work, the District will make best efforts to credit your
authorship. You grant the District permission to use your name for such
attribution purposes. You, likewise, agree to represent yourself
accurately. You acknowledge that misrepresentation may lead us, in our
sole discretion, to cancel your use of the Services and delete any of
your Content.

2. Conduct

Posting

Those of us who are coordinating this project believe
deeply in free speech. Given our role in offering this service and our
presence together as part of the extended educational community,
however, we must reserve the right to remove certain content that you
may post. As a general matter, you may post content freely to your blog
and to those of others, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene,
defamatory, threatening, infringing of intellectual property rights,
invasive of privacy or otherwise injurious or objectionable.

You may not use the District name to endorse or promote any product,
opinion, cause or political candidate. Representation of your personal
opinions as institutionally endorsed by the District or any of
its schools or organizations is strictly prohibited.

By posting content to any blog, you warrant and represent that you
either own or otherwise control all of the rights to that content,
including, without limitation, all the rights necessary for you to
provide, post, upload, input or submit the content, or that your use of
the content is a protected fair use. You agree that you will not
knowingly and with intent to defraud provide material and misleading
false information. You represent and warrant also that the content you
supply does not violate these Terms, and that you will indemnify and
hold the District harmless for any and all claims resulting from
content you supply.

You acknowledge that the District does not pre-screen or regularly
review posted content, but that it shall have the right to remove in its sole
discretion any content that it considers to violate these Terms or the
terms of any other user agreements that may govern your use of
the District’s network.

Accessing

You understand that all content posted to
http://blogs.4j.lane.edu/ is the sole responsibility of the
