Terms of Use for CCM.net - Legal Matters

October 2016

Obeying the Law

Internet users often think cyberspace is a special legal jurisdiction. However, every website, and by extension, all of its users, are still subject to the laws of whichever country the site is hosted in. For this reason, kioskea and its users are required to obey Tunisian law.

Among those things which are prohibited, and may lead to prosecution are:

  • Attacks on other people's privacy (naming third-party individuals without their explicit consent). To that end, sending unsolicited electronic messages to users of this site is prohibited;
  • Defamation and slander;
  • Calling for crimes and misdemeanors to be committed; promoting suicide, discrimination, hatred (especially racism) or violence;
  • Condoning any crimes, especially murder, rape, war crimes, and crimes against humanity; denial of crimes against humanity;
  • Reproducing, depicting, or distributing any work which is subject to intellectual property rights without approval to do so;
  • Advertising or commercial messages;
  • Discussions about copying commercial software for any use other than making a backup copy under the conditions allowed by the intellectual property code.

About Peer-to-Peer File-Sharing

Using peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing software is not prohibited by French law. However, despite the debates going on in Parliament, using software to download or share copyrighted software is.

For this reason, although discussions about using such software are allowed on the forum, any discussion which makes direct reference to copying or sharing copyright-protected works will be deleted. If this happens, please do not dispute the deletion of these posts; instead, save your energy for posting messages which do comply with the terms of use.
