mailing lists disclaimer
Our mailing lists are public forums, and our mailing list archives are public.
By sending an email to such a public forum, you agree to public distribution of your article. All mails sent to any of our mailing lists will be publically distributed and archived in our mailing list archives.
Any emails sent by any one person directly to the list, or replies by others to those emails sent to the list, are considered published, in accordance with the United States law.
Obviously the author still owns the copyright to the content of these emails that they have written. However, that does not mean that Microsound is under obligation to remove them from a list archive once published. Several legal counsels have reviewed this stance and confirmed it is correct.
The mailing list archives have been public well before you sent a message to that mailing list address. You are responsible for determining who it is you are sending your email to. You cannot send email to arbitrary recipients and expect that they are automatically forced into accepting your terms for receiving your email.
Microsound accepts no responsibility for the opinions and information posted on its mailing lists by others.
By posting material, the posting party warrants and represents that it owns the copyright with respect to such material, has received permission from the copyright owner, or that the material is in the public domain. The posting party further warrants and represents that it otherwise has the full and unencumbered right to post such material and that such posting will not infringe any rights or interests of others.
Microsound does not generally monitor its mailing lists for inappropriate postings, and does not undertake editorial control of postings. We do, however, reserve the right to prevent posting to mailing lists in the event of failure to comply with the mailing list code of conduct.
.microsound is not a “genre” mailing list, since this proliferation has occurred largely without regard for stylistic boundary. instead, .microsound presents itself as a forum for the discussion and exploration of a more general “digital aesthetic” manifesting across a wide variety of styles and disciplines — from academic computer music to post-industrial noise to experimental ambient and post-techno.
to take any of the following actions, send a blank email to the appropriate address. you will receive an authentication request to reply to, after which you will be added to the list.

although certain aspects of production inevitably enter discussion, .microsound is not a music-makers list; if you're after detailed deliberation of the merits of this or that dsp card or vst plugin, we recommend lists such as csound, MAX/MSP, pro-audio, freesound, music-dsp, structured audio, lo-fi, and gameaudiopro that capably handle these topics.
,microsound is an unmediated list, but that doesn't mean anything goes. posts should concern topics of historical, conceptual, or experiential relevance to digital and post-digital music. record and event reviews are encouraged; mean-spirited pissing contests are not. announcements regarding new releases, performances, tours, and so forth pertinent to the list's scope will be tolerated in brief, and by subscribers whose contributions otherwise exceed postings of this sort.
.microsound refuses to become a sounding board for ebay auctions, playlists, and the periodic expurgations of listmembers' record collections. extended for-sale lists are not allowed, although brief posts containing urls where such lists can be viewed are acceptable. posters who abuse these few guidelines will be hounded into submission. failing that, they will be removed from the list.
this is for anything that is not aesthetic discussion, including may of the topics outlined above. you can subscribe to the list over the web.
