VoD Terms of Service

English only, please.

VoD welcomes all nationalities but my native language is English. I don’t know any other languages. Therefore, only English is allowed here so that my staff and I may effectively moderate content.

TLDR Version

This is the “Too Long Didn’t Read” version of our ToS. You may limit your time to this section but are encouraged to read and expected to adhere to the entire document.

Prohibited Content

Violations of Prohibited Content will simply result in such content being removed and a painless, proverbial slap on your wrist in private.

  • Photographs (We're unable to verify actor ages or consent)
  • Likenesses of Real People (Discouraged but not enforced. Takedown requests from subjects will be honored.)
  • Photo manipulations (Environmental backdrops and HDRI’s for 3D renders are allowed)
  • Copyrighted works by other artists without their consent (Excludes posting your inspired work to compare with an artist's original work - Please include appropriate credit)
  • Underage characters (Includes 3D-rendered, sketched, painted, or drawn)
  • Promoting software / content piracy (Excludes using character assets from video games in one’s artwork due to our inability to verify ownership. Takedown requests from IP owners will be honored.)

Bannable Offenses

There are only two offenses that will get you permanently banned from VoD:

  • Being an ass (flame wars, cyber-stalking, etc.)
  • Posting child porn or links to it

The sections above are explained in detail below.

Full Version

Forum Etiquette

Freedom of expression is encouraged here, including the occasional, robust discussion of controversial issues. Please remember, this is an art forum, not a debate club. Abuse and harassment, racial intolerance, extreme views from either end of the political spectrum, and sexual or other forms of aggression, will NOT be tolerated. Repeat offenders risk being permanently banned.

Other forms of inappropriate conduct may also lead to membership being revoked without warning.

Photographs

Revenge porn has become pervasive on adult sites. Legitimate, established producers do well in following current legal processes to verify age and keep records of consent. Amateur photographers tend to be another matter. Since VoD doesn’t allow commercial content and has no way to verify actor ages or consent, photographs are prohibited here.

Photo Manipulations

By and large, photo manipulations are prohibited.

If the base image is a photograph to which the artist does not own the copyright, and they have then simply added something like a noose to the image, then the image is not allowed.

If the majority of the image is the artist’s, then the image is allowed. If, for example, the base image is a 3D render created by the artist who has then added some photographic elements to it, then the image is allowed.

If the base image is a royalty-free photograph of an environment which the artist has used as a backdrop for a 3D-rendered scene, the image is allowed. This includes HDRI’s. Crediting the source of photographed environments is strongly encouraged when possible, but not required.*

* If I receive a take-down request from anyone who claims ownership of a photographed backdrop, the image will be removed.

** Photographed backdrops must not include real people.

These are not legal definitions of whether photo manipulations are acceptable, but my own criteria. If you’re not sure, please contact me before posting.

Likenesses of Real People

Artists should refrain from using recognizable images of real people in their work, although this is not a hard and fast rule.

If you discover that a recognizable likeness of your face has been used in any image, and believe that this has violated your privacy or caused you distress in any way, please contact me with the details, and I will arrange for the image to be removed from the site if appropriate.

Advertising

Advertising sites containing material related to visual art is allowed, as is advertising other types of art sites. If you’ve come here just to advertise your site, and not to contribute in other ways, then you are not welcome here. If you’re simply advertising porn sites with no artistic merit, then your post will be removed. Fetish video producers are prohibited from advertising here.

External Links

VoD may provide links to third-party websites or resources. You acknowledge and agree that PiP is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such websites or resources, or the content, products, or services on or available from such websites or resources. Links to such websites or resources do not imply any endorsement by PiP of such websites or resources or the content, products, or services available from such websites or resources. You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume all risk arising from your use of any such websites or resources.

Software Piracy and Content Theft

Piracy is theft, pure and simple. Re-distributing pirated commercial apps, models or texture sets is strictly prohibited. This excludes using character assets ripped from video games in one’s artwork, as the majority of inspired character models tend to use them in some capacity. We have no way of verifying ownership, and don’t want to risk punishing artists who unwittingly use them in their work. Takedown requests from IP owners will be honored.

If you discover that a recognizable asset you own from a game you helped develop or distribute has been used in any image, and believe it violates your IP’s EULA, please contact me with the details and I’ll arrange for the image to be be removed.

Copyright

Artists who share their work here retain the legal copyright to their work. It is immaterial that this is a free site.

Members may not claim other artists work as their own (either explicitly or implicitly). Making some small changes to the source image (such as removing the true artist’s signature and replacing it with a new one) does NOT make the image the property of the member.

The Galleries are reserved for original member artwork. Members may only post images by other artists for the purpose of comparing their own, inspired work to said images as long as they credit the original artist.

About Minors

While this section is next to last, it is no less important. It was strategically put near the bottom to ensure you would likely read everything else above.

Images of Minors

Here in the US, the legal age of adulthood is 18. Anyone under 18 is a minor. United States Code states that digital or computer generated images that are indistinguishable from an actual minor are illegal. That is the legal definition that we follow here.

Besides the illegality of child porn, our position on minors is that there is absolutely no logical rationale for children to be featured in content posted on an adults-only forum. With that in mind, there is only one cardinal rule: Depictions of minors in any context are STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

Images that involve child nudity are categorically prohibited, and any attempt to post, or link to child pornography will result in an immediate and permanent ban, with no appeal.

All artists must ensure that figures used in their work look at least 18. It is not enough to claim they are 18. They must also look 18.

Please note that fairies, pixies, elves, and other human-like creatures will be assessed as if they were human, and must also appear to be 18 years or over.

Minors Referenced in Text

Similarly, any ages of participants specifically mentioned in text accompanying images, where sexual activity or extreme peril is involved, must be 18 or over.

Legal Issues

It may be illegal for you to post, view, or be “in possession of”, certain types of subject matter, including bestiality or fantasy snuff, depending on your location and any applicable laws. It is your responsibility to find out the exact legal position that applies to you in this regard. As a viewer you may encounter both types of image here, along with other extreme content, including BDSM, torture, and similar subjects. If such content is not your cup of tea, or if you are at all worried about the legal implications of being inadvertently exposed to such material, then please do not join the site. If you have already joined the site and discover that the content is not to your liking then please leave and ask for your membership to be terminated. I will ensure that all relevant user data is deleted.


These terms may be changed at any time without notice.

If you do not agree with these terms, please do not register or use the Service. Use of the Service constitutes acceptance of these terms. If you wish to close your account, please contact us.
