Some of the music featured here has been provided free of charge by a record label, pr firm, or artist.  My acceptance of this music and its placement on this website should not be construed as an endorsement.  A writer receiving promotional material is business as usual.  Rather, a high score on the Rockometer is an endorsement.  An album’s placement in heavy rotation is an endorsement.  You get the idea.

If you’re a band or a label and need a physical mailing address, email the account listed above and one can be provided.

If you’re a band or a label or a trade organization and believe something on this website is in violation of DMCA regulations, please take the time to research your claim first.  Nearly all of the music featured here (Upwards of 95%) has already been cleared by a representative working on behalf of the artist for promotional usage.  If after you’ve researched your claim and still feel like something here is infringing on your rights, please contact me directly and I will put you in touch with the representative who initially granted rights for the content in question.  There’s no need for strongly worded threats or legal action.  We’re civilized people who can work complicated matters out civilly.

The views and opinions stated on this website belong to Bill Lipold of IRockCleveland.com and do not reflect the views of my current employer — Whomever that may be whenever you are reading this disclaimer.

Lastly, while I Rock Cleveland does not have a formal user agreement, I do ask you to act civilly in the comments section.  Comments which contain excessive use of profanity or contain insults or threats directed at the author or fellow commenters will be removed.  Otherwise, you are encouraged to comment, question, disagree, or rant as much as you like.  Use common sense and respect and we’ll all get along.

Thank you and rock on.
