Material that is copyright protected may not be submitted without permission from the copyright owner.

These nonexclusive publishing license and resale/adaptation rights extend to any materials submitted "for publication" within The Bump, including both message board postings and content submitted to The Bump for uploading and subsequent publishing within non-message board Areas. The Bump and The Bump's staff are not and will not be responsible for any misleading, false, or otherwise injurious information and advice communicated in our Area or for any results obtained from the use of such information or advice. The Bump will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by a user through the user's reliance on information and advice gained in this Area. (Sounds serious, right? We don't mean to scare you! It's just physically impossible for us to control forums such as the message boards, and we trust our Nest Baby users' good sense and intelligence to make informed decisions on their own!)
Be Careful Out There.
Given the interactive nature of the forums, both the salaried staff of The Bump and our users will generate content in the forums. We can control our salaried staff members' contributions; however, we are not able to edit and ensure the accuracy of the content generated by our users, many of whom use anonymous screen names and with whom we have no official relationship.
Therefore, users of The Nest should handle the information generated by fellow users with common sense caution. There's a lot of great advice on The Bump, but users should consider any information and advice given by other users as a starting point for their own research. The Bump cannot guarantee the accuracy, efficacy, or veracity of any information provided within The Bump galleries, blogs, and forums.
The Bump cannot guarantee that all content and materials that appear in The Bump Areas is not infringing on any registered or non-registered copyrights. On any given day, potentially thousands of new postings may appear on The Bump's message boards, and it is humanly impossible to verify that each and every one of these postings are free of copyright infringement. (We wish we could! We wish we had a huge staff who could do everything we want and need, but alas, 'tis impossible!)
