Site Rules

1. Do not upload TCG/OCG/Anime Images!!!

...or any copyrighted images. Pretty Please. You may have noticed DuelingNetwork and YGOPRO were taken down because Nihon Ad Systems (which owns Yugioh Images) sent them a Cease & Desist. Please don't let the same thing happen here. Keep it legal. As far as we know, it's still OK to upload TCG cards themselves, just not the images.

2. No pornographic images.

3. Don't edit other people's public cards, except in the following:

* It is obviously a spam/joke card
* They give you permission
* It uses imaginary types or attributes
* It is not for standard duels (for example, "Boss Duels")

4. Don't abuse the chat or email.

5. Be nice to your opponent.

Don't cheat. Don't ruleshark. Don't make overpowered cards.


Terms of Service

NOTE: This is merely a precaution for images uploaded to Duel Portal. The terms are almost identical to Imgur.

Using this website to access anything other than this page ("tos") constitutes your consent to these terms of use. If you do not consent, do not use our website.


We may update this site and any content contained within at our leisure. We are not liable if any content is wrong; we do not claim anything within our system to be correct.


Your use of our website to do anything beyond simply accessing/viewing it (that is, uploading, downloading, commenting, etc.), constitutes not merely your consent, but also your electronic signature, meaning that you are contractually bound by these terms.


By uploading an image, you represent and warrant to us that (1) doing so does not violate or infringe anyone else's rights; and (2) you created the file or other content you are uploading, or otherwise have sufficient intellectual property rights to upload the material consistent with these terms.
With regard to any file or content you upload to the public portions of our site, you grant Duel Portal a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable worldwide license (with sublicense and assignment rights) to use, to display online and in any present or future media, to create derivative works of, to allow downloads of, and/or distribute any such file or content.
To the extent that you delete any such file or content from the public portions of our site, the license you grant to Duel Portal pursuant to the preceding sentence will automatically terminate, but will not be revoked with respect to any file or content Duel Portal has already copied and sublicensed or designated for sublicense. Also, of course, anything you post to a public portion of our site may be used by the public pursuant to the following paragraph even after you delete it.

You many not download any portion of this site unless you uploaded that portion with the stipulations above.

Duel Portal actively tries to prevent and take down infringing images that its users upload. However, we cannot verify that everything a user uploads is public domain, or that they own the rights to it. If you see anything on our site that you believe infringes your copyright rights, you may notify us at the email address:

abuse@ramnode.com


Include the following information with your notification:

Identification of the copyrighted work or works claimed to have been infringed. IMPORTANT: you must have a registered copyright for the work, or at least have filed with the Copyright Office (http://www.copyright.gov/eco/) an application to register a copyright for the work. DMCA notifications based on unregistered works are not valid.
Identification of the material on our servers that is claimed to be infringing and that is to be removed, including the URL or other information to enable us to locate the material. (Duel Portal has a wiki that can be used to assist with this).
A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by you as copyright owner, or by your agent, or by law.
A statement that the information in your notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the owner (or authorized to act on behalf of the owner) of the exclusive copyright right that is allegedly being infringed.
Your physical or electronic signature, or of someone authorized to act on your behalf.
Instructions on how we may contact you: preferably email, but also address and phone.

Use the same procedure for any claimed trademark violations or other infringements. If we receive a DMCA takedown demand for material you posted that we believe constitutes fair use, we will attempt to notify you if we have your contact info; otherwise we are under no obligation to notify you regarding the removal. We reserve the right to refuse to remove any material that in our view constitutes fair use. If we identify you as a "repeat infringer," we will block or remove your images and terminate any accounts you have with us. (If we notify you of a DMCA removal and you respond with a legitimate counter-notice, that won't count toward being a repeat infringer.) Keep in mind that we reserve the right to remove any content at any time whether or not it infringes or violates any of our policies.
