Unfortunately, we have run into situations where certain individuals have
decided to "withdraw" their
contributions from the Chess Variant Pages for various reasons.
We feel that sometimes these demands are
unreasonable, and that we are not legally compelled to obey them. The following
agreement then, is to remove any misunderstandings as to what our obligations are
in the matter of removing or amending material published on our pages.
- By submitting your copyrighted work to the Chess Variant Pages, you are
giving us permission to publish that copyrighted work on our web pages. Note:
you are still the copyright holder, but you have agreed to let us publish your

- The submitter of the work is not the copyright holder or did not have
permission to distribute the work.
- The work violates the publishing standards of the Chess Variant Pages.
- The work contains significantly false, inaccurate,or harmful information.
- A convincing and compelling reason is given regarding amending or
removing the page. Reasons such as the submission being flawed or
sub-optimal aren't considered convincing and compelling for the purposes of
removal of the submission.
So please be sure you are comfortable with your
work being published before you submit it to us.
- The Chess Variant Pages reserves the right to control the publication
of submitted works. This means that once submitted, the Chief Editors
of the Chess Variant
Pages determine whether or not the submission is published, or continues
to be published, on our web pages.
- The publishing of submitters' names and email addresses is by
permission. By submitting your copyrighted work, you are giving us
permission to publish your name in association with your work. Submitters
may request their work be published anonymously, in which case we will not
publish the submitter's name.
- Once permission is given to publish a name or email address, we will
consider amending or removing such information under the conditions
specified in entry 2. Again, the Chess Variant Pages retains the right to
control the publication of this information once permission has been given.
- If you intend to patent your submission, or create a commercial
product, you are advised to consult legal counsel as to whether it is
prudent to give permission to have your submission published. The Chess
Variant Pages will not be bound by any future contracts you make with other
