This section of SmarterHomeTheater.com deals with legal mumbo jumbo. I can’t think of anything more distressing and distracting.
The Federal Trade Commission requires that I publish the guidelines concerning any product reviews you see on this website. Please read my Disclosure Policy.
Libel in Comments:
This website is open to comments. You will find user-generated comments under many articles and other pages. If you are making a comment, then do not commit libel. Libel is a written statement about someone that is not based in fact. State all the facts you want and allow other visitors to decide who is right.
As a website owner and publisher, Federal Law has been passed that offers immunity to me in case you do cross the line and commit libel. So to save all of us lots of time, don’t do it. Just state all the facts of what happened and keep out all adjectives describing the person and his/her workmanship.
Your Use of SmarterHomeTheater.com:
I grew up in the age before personal computers. Sure, we had search engines when I was younger, but we called them the Yellow Pages. Do you still have one in your home? Go get it and look to see the fattest category – the one with the most businesses in it. Is it Attorneys or Lawyers? You bet it is.
These people need work and many create billable hours filing lawsuits, writing interrogatories, doing discovery, taking depositions, etc. All these things create billable hours.
You and I pay for this stuff in higher prices of many consumer goods. Think of ladders. Have you noticed how expensive they are? It’s because a large part of the purchase price goes to a legal defense fund and insurance premiums for when some idiot sets the ladder wrong or overreaches while on the ladder and falls. The ladder company gets sued and decides to settle instead of fight. Remember, you *paid* for the ladder. That is an important point.
Well guess what? You are not being charged for the information you get from me. You get the tips, advice, and secrets from me for free on this website. So for you to even think of suing me is unacceptable. If you feel differently, please close your browser now, go away and kindly never come back to SmarterHomeTheater.com.
If you decide to stay, and I hope you do :-> , then you need to realize the following:
• If you submit a question, story, image, drawing, photograph, or any other matreial to me via SmarterHomeTheater.com, you agree that I can use it on my website or in any other future publication without any compensation from me. If you do want compensation, any advice or knowledge you take away from visiting my website or from a reply I send to you is payment in full, forever, for anything you send to me.
• You agree to use any and all advice found at SmarterHomeTheater.com at your own risk. Here is but one example of thousands of things that might go wrong after you follow some of my advice:
• Let’s say you try to hook up a new receiver and Blu-Ray the way I describe. One month later, the receiver blows up, because you made a mistake, the hookups you used were defective, you did something wrong, or your equipment was slightly different from the typical equipment used in the example. The blown receiver burns down your house, all of your things get destroyed, and your wife, children, and pets run for the hills and are never heard from again, (maybe they were just looking for an excuse)?
In the event something like the above happens, don’t have your lawyer/attorney contact me, have them contact your insurance company instead.
That’s it. See how simple I make it to do business with SmarterHomeTheater.com?
Are you in a grumpy mood now? Well don’t blame me, refocus that negative energy towards those who file lawsuits each day to keep our litigious society and economy on a roll.
