Fair Usage of FBRL Information
You should assume that all materials available
through the Fanciers Breeder Referral List are protected
by copyright, whether or not they contain a copyright notice,

indicating that they are in the public domain.
This includes the copyright to this compilation
of data, which may not be reproduced in any way in any form

What does this mean to you?
If you are looking at the FBRL
as a way of expanding your mailing list, do not use this
site for that purpose. It is created to help people
find cat breeders. The compilation of this data is protected
by Internet copyright law and may not be downloaded or used
or otherwise copied without my advance, written, and express
permission. It is a violation of copyright law to do otherwise
and violators will be prosecuted.
This site is the result of years of hard
work, and taking that work for your own use is not fair
This includes but is not limited to: using
it to build your own customer database to promote goods
or services, contacting customers to advance a political
agenda (however seemingly well-meaning), complaining about
someone or something. The legitimate use of this service
is to contact individual breeders to find out information
about a breed and/or cats and kittens for sale.
In the privacy statement to my
customers, I state I will do my best to maintain privacy
for them. It also states I will not send them advertisements.
I expect site visitors, even commercial ones, to respect
If you have an announcement about
a product or service you would feel would be of interest
to FBRL subscribers, please send me an email with
a paragraph describing your product and I will include it
in the FBRL Announcements. (In other words, if it's a new
cat toy or litter management system, great! If it's a dating
service, you're out of luck).
