Welcome to The TechnoLawyer Community! The following Terms of Service apply to all TechnoLawyer Community members ("Users").


1. Acceptance of Terms of Service

PeerViews Inc. ("PeerViews"), which owns The TechnoLawyer Community, provides its TechnoLawyer Community-related services (the "Service"), including future modifications, to you subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein as well as any operating policies that PeerViews may establish (the "Agreement"), and all applicable laws and regulations, including those governing copyrights, patents, and trademarks.

By joining The TechnoLawyer Community and using the Service, you accept, without limitation or qualification, all of the terms and conditions in this Agreement. PeerViews may make changes to this Agreement, and your continued use of the Service constitutes your acceptance of any such changes.

PeerViews reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Service, or any features of the Service, temporarily or permanently, without notice to you, and you agree that PeerViews is not liable to you should it do so. PeerViews reserves the right to contact you regarding the Service.

You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell, or exploit, for any commercial purposes, any portion of the Service, use of the Service, or access to the Service.

PeerViews reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time. The changes will appear here and throughout The TechnoLawyer Community’s Web site. By using the Service, you agree in advance to accept any changes.


2. Description of Service

The Service provided by PeerViews via The TechnoLawyer Community is best described as an e-mail community in which legal professionals and others in the legal field share information about business and technology issues, products, and services, often developing valuable business relationships in the process. PeerViews compiles and distributes this "peer-written content" in a variety of e-mail newsletters. Along with this peer-written content, PeerViews also distributes its own editorial content as well as targeted advertising (collectively, the "Content").

The Service also consists of a Web site, which enables you to customize your account settings—namely, changing your e-mail address, changing your password, suspending service, terminating service, choosing your message format, and choosing your newsletters. The Web site also enables you to access "The TechnoLawyer Archive," an archive containing all TechnoLawyer Community content, and place "TechnoLawyer Classifieds," e-mail classified ads.

In consideration of your use of the Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself when prompted by the Service's Registration Form and Biennial Survey; and (b) maintain and promptly update this data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.

You further acknowledge and agree that to maintain your membership in The TechnoLawyer Community , and to continue to access the Service, you must complete the Biennial Survey shortly after joining The TechnoLawyer Community, and then every two years thereafter.

If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, misleading, not current, or incomplete, or PeerViews has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, misleading, not current or incomplete, PeerViews may, at its discretion, suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service. Furthermore, if you fail to complete the Biennial Survey within a reasonable period of time, PeerViews may, at its discretion, suspend or terminate your account.

As part of the registration process, you will create a password. You are solely responsible for keeping your password confidential and for all activities that occur under your password. Please contact PeerViews in the event of the unauthorized use of your password or account, or any other breach of security.

You agree and consent to PeerViews’ distribution of TechnoReleases via e-mail to you on or about Tuesdays, and you acknowledge that these TechnoReleases are not unsolicited because of your express agreement to receive them.

You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service, which may involve third-party fees (such as Internet Service Provider charges). You are responsible for those fees, including those fees associated with the display or delivery of advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.

You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that PeerViews assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, misdelivery, or failure to store any communications or customization settings.

6. Writing Contests

PeerViews currently operates two writing contests for The TechnoLawyer Community—MasterPost and TechnoDebate, each of which is discussed below.


6.1. Definitions

MasterPost: MasterPost is a triweekly writing contest open to all Users who contribute Posts to The TechnoLawyer Community. It lies within PeerViews’ discretion to name more than one MasterPost winner in the same period. After the winning author(s) has (have) assented, PeerViews transforms the winning Post(s) into a publishable article and makes it available for syndication through the "TechnoLawyer Syndication Network," a group of approximately 125 print and online legal publications.

TechnoDebate: TechnoDebate is a bimonthly writing contest that begins in The TechnoLawyer Community and ends as a professionally-published column in Law Office Computing, a print magazine owned by James Publishing Company. Unlike MasterPost articles, TechnoDebate articles are syndicated to just one publication. However, TechnoDebate winners are guaranteed that placement in Law Office Computing.

8. ViewPoints

ViewPoints are an incentive reward currency created by PeerViews for The TechnoLawyer Community .


8.1. Value

1 ViewPoint = 2 Cents (United States) when applied to products or services that PeerViews makes available. ViewPoints have no cash value outside of these parameters. The value of ViewPoints is subject to change without notice, but any changes will not alter the value of ViewPoints you have already received.


8.2. Redemption

You acknowledge that you may only redeem ViewPoints for products and services that PeerViews makes available. You further acknowledge that ViewPoints may not be redeemed for cash from PeerViews under any circumstances.


8.3. Transfer

ViewPoints may be transferred from one User to another User, provided that both parties notify PeerViews of such transfers in writing. PeerViews reserves the right to reject transfers with or without cause. You acknowledge that you may not transfer ViewPoints from your account in The TechnoLawyer Community to your account at another e-mail community operated by PeerViews or vice versa.


8.4. Expiration

ViewPoints have no expiration date. Notwithstanding this provision, you acknowledge that your ViewPoints do not entitle you to any rights as a creditor of PeerViews. You further acknowledge that PeerViews may eliminate some or all of your ViewPoints for any reason or no reason at all. In the event PeerViews or The TechnoLawyer Community ceases to operate or files for bankruptcy, you acknowledge that your ViewPoints will have no value.


8.5. Tax Consequences

Users who receive ViewPoints are independent contractors and solely responsible for all federal, state, local, or other applicable taxes that might apply. You should report the cash value of your ViewPoints on your personal tax return. While it is unlikely that ViewPoints will materially affect your taxes, PeerViews encourages you to discuss this matter with a certified public accountant if you have any concerns. If you earn 30,000 or more ViewPoints ($600 U.S.) in a single calendar year, PeerViews will send you a 1099 as required by law.

You acknowledge that PeerViews has no obligation to disclose or explain how it awards ViewPoints for Posts. PeerViews does not award any ViewPoints for Posts that are not distributed via e-mail.

PeerViews awards 500 ViewPoints for each TechnoFeature article, 500 ViewPoints for each TechnoDebate victory, and 1,000 ViewPoints for each MasterPost victory.

Users may publish their Posts, MasterPost articles, TechnoDebate articles, and TechnoFeature articles in publications or on Web sites that they control or for which they serve as an editor, but if such publication does not qualify as a Syndication Event, Users will not be entitled to any ViewPoints.
