Copyright is the ownership and control of the intellectual property in original works of authorship which are subject to
copyright law. It is the policy of
StarMusicMedia™ that all rights in copyright shall remain with the creator unless the work is a
work-for-hire (and copyright vests in
StarMusicMedia™ under copyright law), is supported by a direct allocation of funds
through
StarMusicMedia™ for the pursuit of a specific project, is commissioned by StarMusicMedia™, makes significant use of
StarMusicMedia™ resources or personnel, or is otherwise subject to contractual obligations.

A. Copyright

1. Copyrightable Works
Under the federal copyright law, copyright subsists in "original works of authorship" which have been fixed in any
tangible medium of expression from which they can be perceived, reproduced, or otherwise communicated, either
directly or with the aid of a machine or device. These works include:

Literary works such as books, journal articles, poems, manuals, memoranda, blogs, bloggers, tests, computer programs,
instructional material, databases, bibliographies;

Musical works including any accompanying words;

Dramatic works, including any accompanying music;

Pantomimes and choreographic works (if fixed, as in notation or videotape);

Pictorial, graphic and sculptural works, including photographs, diagrams, sketches and integrated circuit masks;

Motion pictures and other audiovisual works such as videotapes;

Sound recordings.

2. Scope of Copyright Protection
Copyright protection does not extend to any idea, process, concept, discovery or the like, but only to the work in
which it may be embodied, illustrated, or explained. For example, a written description of
StarMusicMedia™ is copyrightable,
but the copyright only prevents unauthorized copying of the description; the process described could be freely copied
unless it enjoys some other protection, such as patent.

Subject to various exceptions and limitations provided for in the copyright law, the copyright owner has the exclusive
right to reproduce the work, prepare derivative works, distribute copies by sale or otherwise, and display or perform the
work publicly. Ownership of copyright is distinct from the ownership of any material object in which the work may be
embodied. For example, if one purchases a videotape, one does not necessarily obtain the right to make a public
showing for profit.

2.1 Requirement for Copyright or License

StarMusicMedia™ requires WORDPRESS BLOGGERS AND OR WORDPRESS BLOGS to assign publication rights to StarMusicMedia™
as a condition of publishing the work.
StarMusicMedia™ relies on either an assignment of copyright with permanent rights
reserved to the WORDPRESS BLOGGERS AND OR WORDPRESS BLOGS, or an equivalent grant of a license.
StarMusicMedia™
treats the rights granted as the basic means of obtaining certain exclusive publication rights; to create and deliver the
Digital Library; to further disseminate works by acting as a single source for blanket republication requests, such as
aggregated collections or translations, and the delivery of the material to the requesting party; to protect works from
plagiarism and any other unauthorized uses.

StarMusicMedia™ requires that WORDPRESS BLOGGERS AND OR WORDPRESS BLOGS have the authority to grant rights by
copyright or license agreements, or that they obtain the necessary authorization to execute the grant of rights. Such
grant applies to any medium used by
StarMusicMedia™ for publication. Both the StarMusicMedia™ Copyright Transfer and the
StarMusicMedia™ Publishing License Agreement leave important rights with the original owner.

WORDPRESS BLOGGERS AND OR WORDPRESS BLOGS should incorporate the appropriate
StarMusicMedia™ copyright or
License notice and
StarMusicMedia™ citation of the publication into copies they personally maintain.

The WORDPRESS BLOGGERS AND OR WORDPRESS BLOGS grant of rights applies only to the work as a whole, and not to
any embedded objects owned by third parties. WORDPRESS BLOGGERS AND OR WORDPRESS BLOGS who embeds an
object, such as an art image that is copyrighted by a third party, must obtain that party's permission to include the
object, with the understanding that the entire work may be distributed as a unit in any medium. The requirement to
obtain third-party permission does not apply if the WORDPRESS BLOGGERS AND OR WORDPRESS BLOGS embeds only a
link to the copyright holder's object.

WORDPRESS BLOGGERS AND OR WORDPRESS BLOGS who wish to embed a component of another
StarMusicMedia™-
copyrighted or licensed work, e.g., an excerpt, a table, or a figure, must obtain an explicit permission (there is no fee)
from
StarMusicMedia™.

StarMusicMedia™ GIVES NO PERMISSION TO USE THE NAME StarMusicMedia™ WITHOUT ANY WRITTEN CONSENT UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED.  NO MEDIA
OUTLET, BLOG, BLOGGER, WORDPRESS OR OTHER FORM OF BLOG POSTING HAS PERMISSION TO USE THE NAME StarMusicMedia™ WHETHER FOR SATIRE,
POSTING, STORIES, MEDIA, PROMOTION OR BLOG POSTING.  IF ANY UNAUTHORIZED USE IS DISCOVERED StarMusicMedia™ WILL PROSECUTE TO THE FULLEST
