Visitors should be aware that sound bites from popular media can sometimes contain themes and language of a mature nature. WavSource does not contain X-rated sound files, but mature themes and language pervade modern media and culture, so WavSource does contain some movies/misc/warning_under17.wav">R-rated material.

Descriptions of audio files containing profanity are noted by having the language in question substituted with asterisks.

Anyone who samples the material within WavSource should do so with the understanding of this disclaimer and the usage policies found in the next column.

Usage Policies

Access to WavSource is free. There are only a few rules that visitors are asked to observe.

  1. If you like certain sounds or pictures at WavSource and wish to use them on your own web site or post them to a blog site (such as MySpace, Facebook, or Twitter), you must first copy them to your own server or the blog server and link to them from there.  DO NOT link directly to sounds or pictures residing on my server. That movies/misc/black_stallion_thief.wav">steals my bandwidth and increases my costs, which can make WavSource too expensive for me to maintain.

  2. If you're unable to copy sound files to your own server or a blog server, consider linking to the WavSource page (html file) that contains the sound you want people to hear.

  3. The bandwidth thing mentioned above is very serious. Don't do it. Abuse like that could eventually force me to either shut WavSource down or implement theft prevention devices that would make access more restrictive, even for legitimate visitors.

  4. WavSource reserves all rights to the design and html content of this site, unless otherwise indicated. Copying or mirroring the html content herein is prohibited.

  5. WavSource is designed to be both useful and enjoyable. It is not designed to turn a profit or make lots of money. Ad revenue and donations simply help offset the cost of maintaining the site. If you find the site to be useful and enjoyable, your donation will be very appreciated. In any case, please continue to enjoy WavSource.
