Risk breaching copyright law

Copyright law exists to stop someone from plagiarising another's work. It applies to the internet in the same way as it does to TV, books and the press. Breaking copyright law can result in being taken to court.

On our social media channels, please do not post large chunks of text copied from other sources, as this may be an infringement of copyright. Short quotes to illustrate a point may be permissible, although this is at our discretion.

If you wish to refer to external sources of information, it's better to include a link to an appropriate external website.

In addition to this, postings with heavy text speak or unintelligible language such as codes, are also not allowed as this may disrupt the natural flow of conversation.

Contributing material to any of the Sites’ community with the intention to commit a crime, break the law, or condone or encourage unlawful activity is strictly prohibited.

In addition, we may remove posts which we consider could endanger other users - which shall include but not limited to, offering medical and health advice, or encouraging drug or alcohol abuse or self-harm.

Contain potentially defamatory statements

Defamation laws exist to protect individuals and/or organisations from unwarranted, mistaken, or untruthful attacks on their reputation.

Posting a defamatory statement on our Sites is the same as publishing it in a newspaper or magazine and can result in legal proceedings being commenced.

To avoid legal proceedings being commenced, please ensure that you verify the information in your posting as true and accurate, especially when presenting negative statements as facts. Also, avoid jumping to conclusions, exaggerating or making subtle implications. Remember that adding the word 'allegedly' to a statement does not stop it being defamatory.

Both you and The Company can be held liable if you make a defamatory statement on the Sites. So we will remove comments where we have insufficient evidence to defend publication of your statement. This means the Sites moderators may err on the side of caution when considering some comments.

Are abusive or disruptive

Abusive or disruptive behaviour is not allowed on the Sites. This includes, but shall not be limited to:

  • Using swear words (including abbreviations or alternative spellings) or other language likely to offend.

  • Harassing, threatening, or causing distress or inconvenience to any person or people.

  • Flaming: This means posting something that's angry and mean-spirited.

  • Trolling: This means saying deliberately provocative things just to stir up trouble.

  • Infringing the rights of, restrict or inhibit anyone else's use and enjoyment of the Sites.

  • Attempting to impersonate somebody.

  • Using multiple accounts to disrupt boards, annoy users, or to avoid pre-moderation.

  • Bumping or creating duplicate threads, posting in such a way as to cause technical errors, or any other attempts to disrupt the normal flow of conversation. Users who seriously or repeatedly demonstrate such behaviour may have their accounts pre-moderated or permanently restricted and will not be allowed to return.

 

Are offensive
Comments that contain offensive content are not allowed on the Sites. Racist, sexist, homophobic, disabling, sexually explicit, abusive, or otherwise objectionable material will be removed and if extreme will result in immediate and permanent restriction of your account.

 

Are off-topic
Comments that are unrelated to the subject of the article entry to which you are contributing are considered 'off-topic'.

Please do not contribute off-topic material in subject-specific article, except where an article has designated open post. If your comment has been removed for being off-topic, you may be able to resubmit your comment in a more relevant topic area.

 

Contain personal details

Including contact or identification details in comments such as phone numbers, postal or email addresses is not allowed on most services. Please do not reveal any personal information about yourself or others as it might inadvertently put you or someone else at risk.

 

Risk contempt of court

Once a suspect is arrested for an offence, or offences, legal restrictions apply. Please use caution when discussing reports of an arrest or court proceedings. Even linking to archived news stories, blog entries, and comments may be unlawful as Malaysian contempt law, would usually prohibit any reference to the previous conviction(s) of someone facing new court proceedings.

 

Contain spam

Spamming or flooding is not allowed on the Sites. Spamming means submitting the same or very similar contribution many times across blogs or entries. Flooding comprises a resubmission of your contribution to the same site multiple times.

Please do not use a signature beneath your comment to promote websites, services, products, or campaigns. This will cause your posts to be removed as spam.

 

Contain unsuitable URLs

For example you should not link to

  • Unlawful, unsuitable or sexually explicit content.

  • Websites that require payment to access.

  • Foreign language content.

  • Websites that initiate a file download or require additional software in order to view them. This includes .pdf and .mp3 files.

  • Websites that advertise or promote products
     

In some cases the moderator will edit out the link/s leaving the rest of the comment visible on the board. If so the link will be replaced by [Unsuitable/ broken URL removed by moderator]
