Yes, there is a need for legality, lawyers, and formal agreements in rocket science. Here is one disclaimer about this website, and then another story.
T’s and C’s refer to Terms and Conditions. These are a part of any formal contract. Acronyms and lawyers–two things you will get exposed to soon enough in the aerospace world so don’t try to run from them. In fact, they need to be your faithful and trusted servant, not your painful master!
MAY 28, 2021: I have a new and personally impactful story about T’s and C’s to add to my experience now. Amazon has unilaterally and abruptly removed all of my books from their website due to a claim of ownership violation for two other books I published in December 2020. Their contract states that they “are entitled to terminate this Agreement and your access to your Program account at any time.” And “We may also suspend your Program account at any time with or without notice to you, for any reason in our discretion.” They have no formal appeal process. They have refused my requests for more information, consideration, or discussion. Binding arbitration appears to be my only legal recourse. This is life and business with Big Tech!
More information is at my blog post here: http://howtobearocketscientist.com/formal-update-statement-my-books-are-not-available-on-amazon-until-further-notice/
I am actively pursuing options and alternative plans to make my book available again. If you want to be notified when those plans are finalized please subscribe to this blog. Thank you, Brett
