Welcome to Open Studio Network!

Before you begin using the Open Studio Network site, the educational courses, courseware and its related forums (together, the “Service”), you must read and agree to these Terms of Service.

We may occasionally have to revise the Terms of Service, and we’ll try to let you know, but you can always see the updated version here.

Open Studio Network is an online education site and forum.

The Educational Courses and Courseware: The courses offered through Open Studio Network are designed to run for a set period of time with exclusive material. The Courses themselves will contain exclusive content not available to every user of the site, or every forum participant. This material will be available for your use and access for the duration of your membership to the site. All content created for forum users will also be available for course participants for the duration of your membership.

We might occasionally have down time. If we need to upgrade the site, we’ll make every effort to do it so it doesn’t inconvenience you, but from time to time, for maintenance and in the event of a server meltdown, you might find the site unavailable. We don’t plan on this being a problem, but we live in the real world, and our lawyers want to make sure you know that stuff happens beyond our control from time to time and we’ll work to make it right for you as soon as we humanly can.

We also expect you’ll keep your password secure. If it seems that someone else is using your password we reserve the right to suspend your account until we can get it all worked out with you. This is especially true for the course-related material, for which all members of the community may not have access.

We’ll try to keep everything you post appropriately posted, but if something is accidentally deleted, we’re sorry but that’s a risk we’re all going to have to live with. Anything you post, including files, is your responsibility, as is everything you download. We hope there won’t be any viruses or yucky things attached, but we can’t make any guarantees or take responsibility for whatever ends up on your computer. A little “Caveat emptor”- buyer beware – We can’t pay for your hard drive getting erased by someone else’s silly actions. Practice safe computing always. When you post stuff, we reserve the right to share it with the community. Our stuff on the site is protected by copyright as is yours. We won’t publish your stuff in a book without your permission and we want you to give us the same respect and courtesy, if that’s okay with you. That means no copying and selling the videos, audio, charts and materials  from the site and forum- that wouldn’t be nice and we’d have to call our lawyer.

Monthly membership:

  • Some membership plans are offered on an ongoing monthly basis, but can be cancelled at any time. There is no long term commitment beyond the current month.
  • Payment for each month’s service is paid on a recurring basis in advance. As this is a premium subscription educational site with exclusive content, there are no refunds for partial months or pro-rated service.
  • Your membership will be cancelled effective the date you notify us.

Lifetime Access:

All references on this Site to a “Lifetime Membership” or “Lifetime Access” or “Lifetime Use” or “No Expiration” or “Never Expire” (the “Lifetime Membership Policy”) shall mean the lifetime or course or duration of Open Studio Network. If at any time Open Studio Network ceases to exist, the Lifetime Membership Policy will no longer be in effect.

Modifications to Service:

Open Studio Network reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Open Studio Network will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service. We have no obligation to retain any of Your Account or Submitted Content for any period of time beyond what may be required by applicable law.
