RATF DISCLAIMERWe are working as hard and as fast as possible to deal with all the information coming in.
We are swamped and apologize - respond times to comments/questions may be slow.
We are not perfect – note us if there is an oversight…it is not intentional.
Comments left on the RATF site by others - are THEIR opinions – not necessarily ours.
We need volunteers who will uphold the volunteer code of ethics.
We WILL NOT tolerate unprofessional conduct or illegal or unorthodox methods… period.
This is not a vigilante task force.
We simply want to help people with their art theft and copyright issues.
We are volunteers and do not deserve abuse, we are merely assisting you to resolve your rip issues!
