Lizenzbedingungen

Aktualisiert am: Dienstag, 2. Juni 2015

  • Wie alle großen Websites, haben auch wir einige Regeln, an die du dich halten musst, wenn du Last.fm nutzen willst. Diese Regeln sind nicht einfach irgendein "Blahblahblubb-Kleingedrucktes" - es handelt sich um rechtliche Nutzungsbedingungen, und wir empfehlen dir, sie sorgfältig durchzulesen, damit du weißt, was du akzeptiert hast.
  • Wie bei allen Websites ändern sich Last.fm, unsere Leistungen und Software im Laufe der Zeit, sowohl was die gezeigten Inhalte angeht, als auch die angebotene Funktionalität. Wir behalten uns das Recht vor, diese Änderungen vorzunehmen und diese Bedingungen damit einhergehend abzuwandeln. Software, die von Last.fm für den Download angeboten wird, bleibt das Eigentum von Last.fm, und wir behalten uns das Recht vor, auch diese zu aktualisieren und verändern.
  • Vervielfältige bitte keinen Teil der Website oder der Inhalte ohne unsere Erlaubnis.
  • Viele Informationen und Inhalte auf Last.fm werden von Dritten bereitgestellt - sowohl von Benutzern als auch von anderen externen Autoren - und die Genauigkeit und Zuverlässigkeit dieser Informationen liegt voll in der Verantwortung der entsprechenden Dritten. Du findest auf Last.fm möglicherweise auch manchmal Links zu anderen Websites; Last.fm kann nicht für die Inhalte dieser Websites verantwortlich gemacht werden. Links, wie auch alles andere, was von Mitgliedern der Last.fm-Community hochgeladen wird, stehen unter der vollen Verantwortung der Personen, die sie eingestellt haben.
  • Durch die Nutzung von Last.fm stimmst du auch unserer Datenschutzrichtlinie zu - bitte lies unsere Datenschutzrichtlinie.
  • Wenn du Inhalte auf der Website gefunden hast, die dir gehören und von denen du denkst, dass sie ohne deine Zustimmung verwendet werden, dann lies bitte Abschnitt 10 dieser Nutzungsbedingungen. Dort findest du eine detaillierte Beschreibung dessen, was du nun tun kannst. Wir nehmen Verstöße gegen das Urheberrecht sehr ernst. Gib also bitte alle Informationen an, die in Abschnitt 10 genannt werden, und wir werden uns schnell um dein Anliegen kümmern.
  • Wir haben eine Richtlinie der zulässigen Nutzung, aufgestellt, aber ebenso wie die Community-Richtlinien läuft sie auf einige ziemlich einfache Konzepte hinaus: Benimm dich, respektiere die anderen Mitglieder der Community und handle mit deinem gesunden Menschenverstand. Wenn wir denken, dass sich jemand unfair verhält und die Richtlinien missachtet, haben wir das Recht, diesen Benutzer in unserem alleinigen Ermessen von der Website zu verbannen. Wir tun das nicht gerne, aber manchmal ist es die einzige angemessene Reaktion.
  • Wenn du an einem Wettbewerb teilnimmst oder Software zusammen mit Last.fm einsetzt, so lies bitte unbedingt die zugehörigen Geschäftsbedingungen aufmerksam durch, denn sie können Bedingungen enthalten, die über dieses Dokument hinausgehen.
  • Wenn du Last.fm und unsere Software und Leistungen verwendest, akzeptierst du diese "wie besehen". Wir sind auch nur Menschen und machen manchmal Fehler, und wir aktualisieren und verbessern ständig alle Aspekte von Last.fm, wobei wir versuchen, neu gefundene Probleme auszubügeln und subtile Änderungen an Dingen wie unseren Empfehlungsalgorithmen vorzunehmen. Daher sollte Last.fm niemals als "fertiges Produkt" betrachtet werden. Und wenn du Last.fm nutzt, akzeptierst du es - mit allen Fehlern und Schwächen.
  • Last.fm sitzt in London - es gefällt uns hier allen ganz gut - und dieses Dokument ist im Sinne der Gesetze aus England und Wales zu interpretieren.

  5. a statement by you that you have a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorised by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;

12. Information You Submit

From time to time, the Properties may contain functionality through which you can upload or submit information, data, software, messages, photographs, audio, video, text and other materials to, through or on the Website ("Your Upload Information"). For example, the Website may offer forums, bulletin boards, wikis, chat rooms, blogs or other interactive areas ("User Forums"). Last.fm, its parent, subsidiaries or affiliates or the directors, officers, employees, or other representatives of each of them do not endorse the content posted in User Forums. Last.fm reserves the right, but is not obligated, to delete, move or edit Your Upload Information, in whole or in part, submitted by you to a User Forum for any reason in their sole discretion.

Last.fm actively discourages you from uploading information or content (including photographs) about your friends or other people without their express prior consent.

Under no circumstances will Last.fm be liable in any way for any of Your Upload Information including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in Your Upload Information, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of Your Upload Information.

You warrant and represent that Your Upload Information: (i) is an original work by you or you have all necessary rights, licenses and permissions in it and to submit it to Last.fm under the terms of these Terms of Use; (ii) is not defamatory; and (iii) does not infringe upon, misappropriate or violate the rights of any third parties, including, without limitation, any intellectual property rights, rights of publicity or privacy or any other proprietary rights or otherwise violate any law, rule, or regulation.

Except as otherwise described in our Privacy Policy or other agreement on the Website at which you provide Your Upload Information, Your Upload Information will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary and we will not be liable for any use or disclosure to anyone, including but not limited to claimed intellectual property owners. When you upload Your Upload Information via the Website, you irrevocably grant to Last.fm, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and partners, without any credit or compensation to you, a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, unrestricted, irrevocable, royalty-free and fully transferable, assignable and sub-licensable right and licence to use, reuse, modify, adapt, alter, display, archive, publish, sub-license, perform, copy, reproduce, disclose, transmit, communicate to the public, post, sell, translate, create derivative works of, distribute, make and export Your Upload Information (in whole or in part), or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, software or technology of any kind now known or developed in the future, for any purposes whatsoever including, without limitation, for advertising, marketing, publicity and promotional purposes, such as developing, manufacturing and marketing products and targeted advertisements using such Uploaded Information. You hereby waive any moral rights (or any similar rights in any jurisdiction) you may have in and to any of Your Upload Information, even if such material is altered or changed in a manner not agreeable to you. You agree and understand that Last.fm, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and partners are not obligated to use Your Upload Information submitted through the Website or otherwise, and may alternatively choose, in its sole discretion, to discard, refuse to post, limit or block access to Your Uploaded Information without any liability whatsoever.

You acknowledge that the Web Site, through Last.fm, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and partners undertakes no obligation to pre-screen Your Upload Information, but that it has the right, in its sole discretion to monitor, modify, transmit over various networks, refuse, move, block access to or remove any of Your Upload Information. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any of Your Upload Information including, but not limited to, any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of Your Upload Information. Since Last.fm, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and partners may not pre-screen user generated content, you may bear legal responsibility for others' exposure to any offensive indecent or objectionable content in Your Upload Information.
