The Cliff Notes
Please use common sense. Don’t send or write illegal things on StreetArtSF.com Graffiti and Street art is done legally and illegally. Do not disclose to me or anyone on this site your illegal activities. I will not sell your photos. If you submit a photo to me or any of my contributors via email or the site, you agree that you own all the rights to the photo, and that you grant us the right to post it anywhere in connection with Street Art SF.
Respect the artists, their art and the community.
Now for the legalese….
