Press release content must be appropriate for general audiences of all ages.
The following not allowed:
If you send a press release violating our topic guidelines, your press release will most likely be rejected by our staff and/or partners and you will not be entitled to a refund. This is a waste of money for you, for us and negatively impacts our reputation so let's stay clear of these topics. PR Distribution reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to reject and/or remove content that is in violation of our topic guidelines. You are not permitted to submit any evidence to rebut PR Distribution’s decision. PR Distribution’s decision is final and shall not be reviewable by any agency, administrative body, or other court of law. By submitting content to PR Distribution, you acknowledge and agree that PR Distribution is the final word on any content submitted and shall be permitted to reject or remove your content for violation of these topic guidelines. PR Distrubution also reserves the right to amend these topic guidelines as it sees fit and can reject or remove content that violates another moral or ethical guideline, that is not shown in these topic guidelines. Nothing in this
The following topics are allowed but will have limited distribution because some media outlets within our distribution do not allow it:
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY GUIDELINES
Copyright and trademark law protect the intellectual property of an individual or entity (the “Intellectual Property”). Copyright is protection that is afforded to original works of authorship; this includes things such as pictures, written works, etc. Trademarks protect brands, slogans and logos. Intellectual Property owned by another person or entity can only be used with their explicit written permission. There are serious potential consequences for using, without authorization, the Intellectual Property of another.
We do not permit Intellectual Property infringement of any kind and advise you to make sure that any content submitted by you to PR Distribution does not contain the Intellectual Property of anyone else. PR Distribution is not required and does not ensure the content submitted by you is not infringing on someone else’s Intellectual Property. The duty and obligation to do so is solely yours. Under no circumstances will PR Distribution be liable for Intellectual Property infringement, nor will your use through an internet service provider lessen your liability or responsibility. Before submitting any content to PR Distribution, we encourage you to search the online catalogue of the Library of Congress for possible copyright infringement at https://cocatalog.loc.gov/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?DB=local&PAGE=First, and the United State Patent and Trademark Office’s online database for possible trademark infringement at https://www.uspto.gov/trademarks-application-process/search-trademark-database. If you have taken images from Google or other search engine, it is more likely that these images are not yours to use. There is a plethora of copyright-free websites on the internet and we encourage you to use these websites in the event that you think an image may not be yours to use.
Intellectual Property infringement is taken very seriously and we will side with the person or entity alleging infringement upon notification of any such infringement. PR Distribution is not a judicial, arbitration, or mediation service, and will not rule on the permissibility of use of any Intellectual Property. If any content taken down as a result of alleged Intellectual Property infringement, PR Distribution will not re-post any such content unless a court of competent jurisdiction rules that there is no such infringement, that the Intellectual Property is not protectable, or is free to use by others. If you have been accused of copyright infringement, we recommend that you handle any such dispute directly with the accuser.
