Blogger TOS – Update

As announced here yesterday, we have been advised that Blogger will change the terms of service at the end of this month, and will remove any adult blogs which it considers to have “advertising” content. 

JockSpank’s position in this respect is explained in the new notice at the top of this blog. JockSpank is not an advertising blog, and the owners do not make any money from it. However, when we post images or video clips from commercial studios, we have always included a link to the studio. This has been done for the convenience of our visitors and most importantly so as to respect the intellectual property rights of those who created the items which we post.
Failure to acknowledge the copyright owners would be a breach of that copyright, a form of piracy and, in effect, theft. Therefore, wherever a studio is still in existence we have always provided a link to that studio, not because we have been asked to, but because we believe it is the right thing to do. We have kept to this principle ever since JockSpank was first launched in June 2008.
Unfortunately, this could put this blog at risk.
In case the worst does happen we have set up a temporary JockSpank google group where we will issue announcements as to any new JockSpank location should we decide to continue if this blog is removed by Blogger.
You can join the Google group by going to the following link:
please make a note of that link so that you can find us, should this blog suddenly disappear. 
(NOTE: It is not our intention that the Google Group should become an alternative to JockSpank, it is merely intended to be a source of information in an emergency)
Other places where we will publish information if this happens are:
Sore Bottomed Guys: 
Feel the Sting 2
Feel the Sting on Twitter: 
Please keep a note of these locations as well
Despite the above, we hope that Blogger will acknowledge that JockSpank is not an advertising site and that we have never made money from it, and allow us to continue providing the popular content we have done for the last five years.
