Policies of Use


Privacy Policy

T’ai Chi Chih teachers have chosen to be listed on the TaiChiChih.org website for the sole purpose of students being able to find teachers in their area. We do not permit and condone the use of any portion of this teacher database for anyone else’s use.

Intellectual Properties Policy

Graphic images from the TaiChiChih.org website may not be downloaded, copied or duplicated without the express written permission of The Vital Force, Inc, which holds the copyright for said images.

Good Karma Publishing holds the copyright and federally registered trademark for T’ai Chi Chih.

Licensing Policy

Good Karma Publishing limits licensees for the publication and distribution of GKP literature in the U.S. and other countries around the world.

Reprint Policy

The reprint policy is different from the licensing policy. Teachers are permitted to quote a phrase or sentence excerpted from the TaiChiChih.org web site without a prior, written request to do so — as long as it/they are accompanied by a credit line that reads: “Reprinted from the TaiChiChih.org web site, with permission of The Vital Force, Inc.”

Non-T’ai Chi Chih teachers and entities may not reprint TaiChiChih.org web site copyrighted materials without prior approval granted pursuant to a written request.

Trademarks and Logos

Good Karma Publishing and The Vital Force, Inc have registered trademarks and logos, and the guidelines for using them are based partly on legal considerations and partly on the nature of T’ai Chi Chih.

Use of these marks on goods or services that do not originate from Good Karma Publishing and The Vital Force, Inc., and have not been approved by either entity, both infringes upon and dilutes T’ai Chi Chih’s (and Good Karma Publishing and The Vital Force’s) marks, in legal terms. The resulting harm is that the marks and T’ai Chi Chih itself, since T’ai Chi Chih is what the marks symbolize, will come to be associated with a variety of products and services that are not part of T’ai Chi Chih, and are not consistent with T’ai Chi Chih’s purpose. This will cause the marks to lose their meaning and significance as symbols of T’ai Chi Chih.
