Chatlands is a online community, and as with other communities, there are
rules to help this be an enjoyable experience for everyone.
Use of Art Work and Intellectual Material
Chatlands is owned by wunderwood LLC (also referred to in this
policy as "we", "us" or "the company"). By allowing you to use this site,
wunderwood LLC has not given up any rights to the code, concepts, art
work, web pages or other intellectual property. You may not copy, decode,
or otherwise de-compile what we have created. You MAY NOT redistribute any
pictures, sounds or other media without prior permission in writing from
On the CHATLANDS website we allow the use of several types of Artwork or
other copyrightable intellectual property. These are typically poses,
backgrounds or text. The main types of artwork are Custom, Pre-mades,
Free, Mods, Objects and Backgrounds. Some of this Artwork and other
creative material on CHATLANDS.com has been created and/or submitted by
Users like you. The Artist/Owner retains the copyright on submitted
artwork. If the User is not the same person as the Artist/Owner, the User
must have permission from the Artist/Owner before submitting the material
to the site.
By uploading Artwork to CHATLANDS, you are affirming that you have a LEGAL
RIGHT to do so and that you have an agreement from the Artist/Owner (the
current owner of the copyright) that he or she has agreed with all of the
terms and conditions described here.
By submitting Artwork or copyrightable intellectual property to
CHATLANDS.com, or by allowing others to do so, you hereby grant WUNDERWOOD
LLC an unrestricted license to display these works on this website and
other websites owned or operated by WUNDERWOOD LLC. This allows CHATLANDS
to act as a service by hosting and enabling others to view your Artwork on
the site or on the forums. WUNDERWOOD LLC retains the right to reproduce
and redistribute your artwork on all parts of this website and on any
other websites owned or operated by WUNDERWOOD LLC. It exercises this
right on behalf of the Artist/Owner.
WUNDERWOOD LLC agrees that any use of Artwork for other Commercial
Purposes (such as merchandise, ads and banners) will require additional
licensing from the respective Artist/Owner of said artwork.
WARNING: Your paid membership does not obligate CHATLANDS or WUNDERWOOD
LLC to automatically accept submitted Artwork. All pieces of artistic
material must go through normal channels of approval, via the Art Staff.
This may include a waiting period, inquiries, and possible rejection.
Uploading artwork in which you (the User) do not own the copyright, or
have permission to use is NOT permitted. Doing so will only get you banned
from all chats owned or run by WUNDERWOOD LLC.
Our team on CHATLANDS works hard to keep unwanted use of artwork to a
minimum. However, when material is submitted for public access, theft by
others is possible. By submitting artwork or other intellectual material
to CHATLANDS, you have agreed to not hold CHATLANDS accountable for theft
that may have occurred on the site, or sites owned by WUNDERWOOD LLC. If
you think theft has occurred, please notify a member of our team so that a
swift resolution can occur. A permission list is also appreciated by the
CHATLANDS ArtStaff Team.
The Artist/Owner recognizes that unwanted distribution may occur when
sharing artwork, or other creative materials. It is important to
understand that once a member of CHATLANDS has been given permission to
use a piece of artwork or other creative material, that permission cannot
be revoked. However, if an Artist/Owner no longer wishes to allow their
artwork to appear on CHATLANDS, any new poses, rooms or other creative
material will be rejected. The Artist/Owner recognizes that it is
important to keep CHATLANDS.com and its team notified if they no longer
wish to allow their artwork to appear on CHATLANDS.
"Commercial Purposes" - Using artistic or other intellectual property to
financially benefit CHATLANDS or WUNDERWOOD LLC through advertising and or
bringing in money. This may include the material to be used on CafePress,
Zazzle.com, or other online stores. This does not include the direct
resale of said material. CHATLANDS.com will not take a custom pose and
resell it to another User.
"Artist" - The person that originally created and thus probably, but not
necessarily, owns the copyright to the work.
"Artist/Owner" - The person that currently owns the intellectual property
rights to artistic material. This may not necessarily be the original
creator of the work (the Artist).
"User" - The person using CHATLANDS, or any of WUNDERWOOD LLC's services.
The User does have to own the intellectual property rights to the artwork
they are using, but they MUST have permission from the Artist/Owner to
submit the artwork to CHATLANDS.
"Administration" or "Team" - The employees or volunteers that work for
CHATLANDS.com and/or WUNDERWOOD LLC.
"CHATLANDS" or "CHATLANDS.com" is the website owned by WUNDERWOOD LLC.
"Poses" - Pieces of artwork that represent someone on the chat. Some poses
are unique to that individual (Custom Poses). Others have been obtained by
a User/Artist as a set (Pre-mades).
"Custom" - Means there is no other like it. These might be rooms or poses,
and they could be made by the User/Artist, or have been commissioned to be
made by another User/Artist. These can also include custom colored or
shaded outlines, and Pre-mades.
"Pre-mades" are generally generic Poses that are only allowed to be used
by few individuals. Freebies can also fall under this category. These are
"Modified Poses" or "mods" for short, are poses that are made from
pre-existing poses. Whether they be from the CHATLANDS default set,
Customs, or Freebie poses. They are often made from a combination of
these can vary from a Custom pose to Freebie pose.
"Freebies include but are not limited to poses (outlines, grayscales,
Modified poses or full color poses or Custom poses), User-submitted rooms
(outlines, photographs or full color images), and forum avatars/signatures
that the Artist/Owner has allowed to be used free of cost on CHATLANDS and
or other sites/chats. Any Artist has the right to impose limitations and
conditions on the usage of their artwork.
"Freebies" are made available for use by Users of Chatlands (and various
other sites/chats) remain under the jurisdiction of the Artist. The Artist
has the right to determine where and how they are used and alter their
limitations at any time. If unsure about the allowed usage of an image,
please contact the Artist or administration.
"Freebies" are not automatically labeled as Public Domain (no one owns the
rights). In order for Freebies to be considered Public Domain, it must be
made clear to the Chatlands Administration and Users that the material is
