A Note About Our Community
Green Room Press (“Green Room”) is a website where people can publish, sell and buy works related to the arts. We currently feature theatrical plays, but future expansions will include fine art, photographs, musical compositions, poetry, theatre articles, theatre books, animations, short films, and more. Our mission is to give everyone the ability to distribute original content that spans the full range of the arts and performing arts. We endeavor to provide a safe, relevant and user-friendly website for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Green Room's users include children involved in their first artistic endeavor, drama teachers and directors searching for new, cutting-edge works to produce, professors researching new techniques, and authors publishing and selling their works. Because of this wide range, Green Room limits content that might make our users uncomfortable.
Our community strongly supports copyright, which means that you cannot post work or content that you don't own, don’t have permission to publish or that is an invasion of rights or is libelous. We take all allegations of copyright violation very seriously. To that end, if you believe that any material on the Green Room site violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify us, as noted below in the section entitled Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Green Room may, in its sole discretion, terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any user who has infringed on the copyright or other intellectual property rights of Green Room’s users or others.
