What is Public Domain?
The legal term public domain refers to works whose exclusive intellectual property rights have expired, have been forfeited, have been expressly waived, or are inapplicable. For example, the works of Shakespeare and Beethoven, and most early silent films are in the public domain either by virtue of their having been created before copyright existed, or by their copyright term having expired. Some works are not covered by copyright, and are therefore in the public domain.Spoiler

What is the VIP subscription?
The VIP member subscription is part donation and part subscription. You will donate to us 5 euro every month until the subscription is canceled (which you can do anytime).Spoiler
What is the benefits of being a VIP member?
The benefits are that you get access to our give aways. Every penny that remains after server costs and other website related bills are payed will go toward buying games, play time and more to our VIP members.
VIP members also get access to create private content that he or she can choose which other members can see. Some examples of it's uses are:
- Clubs works like an own community. A club can have it's own forum, gallery, blog, discussions, files and more which makes it great for guilds, teams and others to have their own "community" for a cheap price.
- A gold member can create a private club and choose which members are able to see, join and participate. This can be used to for example having a private club for your gaming guild. (Only the club owner are required to be a VIP member. Members invited can be regular members).
- Create a private club for your team where you can share images, have a team discussion forum and more.
- Create a private club for yourself to store images and files for your school project (or anything else).
- And more.
Private Photos Albums
- VIP members can create private albums in our Gallery and choose which members (or guests) can see them.
- VIP members have no restrictions of any kind such as download speeds or simultaneous downloads. Even if regular members are pretty much restriction free, VIP members are even less restricted.
There are other small benefits of being a VIP member throughout the board but the above mentioned are the big ones you should consider.Spoiler
Why restrict regular members?
Due to server load and large files we are restricting guests and free members in order to make sure everyone gets a smooth experience. If many users are downloading many files simultaneously the servers can throw errors for some users. In order to minimize that we restrict download speeds and simultaneous downloads. Guests will notice this while members will barely notice any restrictions. VIP members will have no restrictions at all.
