Audioboom is a platform for podcasters to connect and share with their listeners around the world. We value your voice, and believe strongly in the promotion of ideas and debate. In order to be able to uphold our values though, we need to restrain any abuses that could threaten our ability to provide this service and the freedom of expression it encourages.
So, a few ground rules…
Harmful or dangerous content. Don’t post content that is illegal or encourages others to engage in illegal activities. So, for example, don’t promote the use of illegal drugs or drink driving.
Hateful and violent content. Don't threaten other people or encourage or incite others to take violent action against another person or group of people. Don’t post any content that contains extremist views or appears to incite or promote terrorist activities.
Threat, harassment or bullying. Don’t stalk, threaten, harass, intimidate, invade privacy, reveal other people's personal information or post content that is abusive or embarrassing to any other person.
Sexual content. Audioboom is not the place for content that threatens or promotes sexual violence or exploitation, or offers sexual services.
Defamatory content. Be respectful. Don’t include any content that defames others.
Copyright. Only post content that you made or that you've got permission to use. So, don’t include for example, music tracks (whether in full or just an excerpt) that someone else owns the copyright to, without having the necessary rights in that content to make it available via Audioboom.

Illegal content. Don’t post illegal content. For example, content that is fraudulent or intentionally false or misleading.
Spam and viruses. It’s not acceptable to post large amounts of unwanted or repetitive content or to post or transmit any files containing viruses or other harmful computer code.
