|Cosmoetica Contact, Submissions, and Disclaimer
If you want to contact Dan Schneider, Jessica Schneider, or any of the other Cosmoetica contributors about the site, drop a line to cosmoetica - at- gmail- dot- com. All emails with attachments will be deleted unread, and any threats- personal or legal- will immediately be reported to the authorities. Harassment will be reported to the authorities if of a threatening nature. All contacts, emails, and submissions- electronic, print, or postal, become the intellectual property of Cosmoetica, which is free to do with them as it sees fit, for all contacts, emails, and submissions to Cosmoetica grant a non-exclusive license to forward or post online any contact, emails or submissions in perpetuity; subject to editing for clarity, satire, readability, logic, or any other reason Cosmoetica deems necessary for posting and/or publication on the website. So do all harassments, pointless rants, and curses, which may become the subject of mockery and/or satire via Cosmoetica's email list, and can be posted online at any time. By contacting, emailing, or submitting material(s) to Cosmoetica, copyrighted or not, and any or all persons and/or email addresses associated with the website, the contacter/submitter/respondent waives all rights to claims of damages (personal or financial) or remuneration against Cosmoetica for any embarrassment or regrets suffered because of the rights the website exercises in posting contacts, emails, and/or submissions, now, or in perpetuity, in any medium, online or not- this includes reuses, repostings, and reprints. Emails, by their nature, carry no expectation of privacy, may be reprinted in full or part- at the discretion of the website, and Cosmoetica will not allow people to hide their stupidity, nastiness, nor bigotry behind such. In short, if you are not willing to stand behind a statement that may be forever online, don't email it here. Cosmoetica reserves the right to use any email sent as an example of the asininity of most people. Only provable claims of libel and/or plagiarism are grounds for the removal of material from Cosmoetica. Due to the high volume of traffic and emails Cosmoetica receives (an average week includes 15-1600 queries, submissions, and assorted contacts, not including 3-4 times as many spam emails) it is not likely a reply to every email and/or submission will be granted, so if one is given, appreciate that it is likely because the email had some positive quality 99% of the others lacked. Posted works on Cosmoetica represent the opinions and copyright, solely of the attributed writers, and not necessarily those of Cosmoetica, although the intellectual property rights may belong to Cosmoetica, as well as the writers. All spam and promotional emails received are sent information on Cosmoetica. Ask and you will be removed from further emailings, provided you remove Cosmoetica from your emailing lists.
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.

Roger Ebert praises Dan Schneider's Film Criticism and Website:
Ebert calls Dan Schneider 'a considerable critic....'' that Dan Schneider (in regards to Ebert's writings) 'may well be correct in some aspects. What his analysis gives me is a renewed respect and curiosity about his own work....'; he states, 'Dan Schneider is observant, smart, and makes every effort to be fair.' He states, 'I conclude he is more analytical and less visceral that I am,' Ebert ends his praise, stating, 'What is remarkable about these many words is that Schneider keeps an open mind, approaches each film afresh, and doesn't always repeat the same judgments. An ideal critic tries to start over again with every review.' -12/9/09, from 'Who do you read? Good Roger or Bad Roger?', by Roger Ebert
On 9/17/10, Roger Ebert tweeted, 'The Online Film Critics Society is nuts if they think Dan Schneider doesn't qualify.'
Cosmoetica noted in the New York Times: 'Cosmoetica (www.cosmoetica.com): As a poet, Dan Schneider is, by his own humble admission, ''better than Walt Whitman.'' In between writing the poems that will make him immortal, however -- and he's apparently got more than 10,000 of them -- Schneider has found time to offer a few helpful criticisms regarding his fellow poets and reviewers. If you were looking for someone willing to call T. S. Eliot ''1 of the most grossly overrated writers in the history of the world, & the English language,'' Schneider is your man. His site includes similarly jolly commentary on a large number of contemporary writers.'- 10/3/04, from ' The Widening Web Of Digital Lit', by David Orr

Through the years I have striven to create ways for people to communicate and discourse more effectively via the arts- which are the essence of communication, with poetry being the highest of arts. Unlike most artists, I have never replaced the primary goal of creating great art with the temporal goals of political, religious, nor philosophical action. While art (communication) is the conveyance of ideas and information, it is also- paradoxically- an end unto itself. This realization has enabled me to achieve excellence in my fields. My art is apolitical, irreligious, and aphilosophical. Put simply: when it comes to art I walk the walk, whereas the vast majority of others merely talk the talk.
