Definitions And Examples - Clarifying Semantics - The Other Fruit Membership Terms And Conditions - Anonymized Global Collaboration Network - Making Choice Personal

Here we clarify semantics. To locate a definition there are quick find tabs between segments or an index on the left hand side. Definitions carry the same meanings and apply throughout Biosphere, Terms and Privacy Policy





Agreement with a proposed course of action or outcome. Acceptance, as commonly used, is rather self-explanatory. It is a situation, set of terms, defining of conditions or the results of which can be accepted or not. In other words, acceptance can indicate one person’s formal confirmation of any requirements, roles, responsibilities or the like

As it pertains to collaborations, acceptance declares terms and conditions as having been satisfactorily defined or fulfilled

A buyer in an accepted collaboration is therefore subject to and financially liable for associated transactions or transfers costs as may be owed for such privately registered engagement contract. Acceptance extends to purchaser's confirmed [and thereby accepted] receipt of goods, service, physical items or any type of sale and paid engagement as may be described within or throughout registered Biosphere documentation

For example, purchaser accepts the terms and conditions of their collaboration contract before engagement commences. Once registered contract has begun, purchaser's acceptance of associated terms, conditions, responsibilities, risks, duties, roles, obligations, costs and the like is understood

Registered participants may subsequently confirm individual acceptance of conducts, roles, responsibilities, changes in descriptions, actions and the like. Following registered collaborative engagement, purchaser [a Purchasing Member], may confirm acceptance of total charges alongside specified payment methodologies and so on



Left un-managed by either registered participant and thereby require TOF®’s or Tribunal’s direct functional involvement to resolve, remove, close, process or otherwise complete

Classification of abandoned may extend to actions or decisions being taken by TOF® as involve, but are not limited to:

i) financial transfers awaiting feedback or review;

ii) decisions requiring registered participant’s input;

iii) pending reviews or responses by registered participants or any outstanding set of Biosphere specific tasks left unattended by the responsible member for any period of 28 days [672 hours] or longer

Abandoned may also be applied to TOF® services, actions or tasks should a member have either deleted or de-activated their Biosphere profile before completing previously set requirements of registered contract, pending financial functions, orders, is holding outstanding transfers amounts yet to be executed and the like



The public and private digital facets of a registered member

Accounts appear in TOF®’s mobile applications, web-application, websites as well as throughout associated services

For example, an account may include listings in Biosphere search results, on the global map as a pin and in associated open pins. Account may also be used to by TOF® to reference personally identifiable details such as an email address. Private information may only be visible to TOF® but can be part of an 'account' title



An activated member has confirmed their identity and payment method. Activated members are able to purchase TOF® services in Biosphere

In other words, a registered member with TOF® may be classified as activated after its operator successfully submits copies of and subsequently secures written or formalized approval from TOF® of the recording of their personal identification documentation (which may for example include scans or photos of say currently held and up to date government issued passport or a driver licenses), and banking information registration thereby enabling the movement or deduction of fiat or digital currencies (which may for example include personal credit card details, bank accounts and routing numbers and or connection with PayPal or comparable monetary and or payment processing merchants)

Choices of information provided and registered Biosphere settings are independently conducted at the submitting member's discretion who further assumes full responsibility to meet any transfer or processing fee amounts as owed or that may be linked with their Biosphere profiles, activity, conduct, processing merchants, financial service providers and the like

Only activated members can make purchases, communicate with other Biosphere members regarding collaborative endeavors as well as utilize a range of TOF® services and functions



All interactions with TOF® services and in Biosphere. Activity is shorthand for any documented action relating to interactions or utilization of Biosphere

Activity pertains to all methods of interface including but not limited to any communications such as text; media content; discussions; submitted feedback; notification settings; posted reviews; open collaboration postings; descriptions; private chats; uploading or tagging of media; linking with social media accounts; use or movement of blockchain-based currency in digital wallets; starred multimedia content; listings of 'followers'; entering or adjustment of Biosphere account profile settings; answering of profile questions; collaborative engagement or exchange creation, participation including but not limited to collaboration discussions and the like

TOF® does not monitor all nor control member activity whether relating in part or whole to Biosphere or TOF® services 


additional charges

Costs that arise during registered contract from performance or conducting collaborative engagement or exchange activites. Additional charges are those fees or billable amounts which can be invoiced by one registered participant and thereby set as owed by the other

Additional charges may include, but are not limited to:

i) cancellation fees or penalties;

ii) billed design revisions;

iii) invoiced special requests;

iv) fees against damages or incidentals;

v) subsequent ordered purchase of items or products;

vi) others which constitute a cost to one registered participant who subsequently, as previously mutually agreed to as well as explicitly quantified in registered contract, then presents as owed to purchaser [Purchasing Member], or colloquially known as [client], for payment

TOF® does not monitor registered contract completion execution including lack thereof. TOF® may implement financial functions to specified amounts or values exactly as quantified within registered contract



Any stated form of mutual understanding. An agreement may be towards a collaborative engagement or similarly defined formalized structure of mutual intent and understanding which, in part or whole, may contribute to the creation of a defined common understanding stipulating as by contract the actions, conduct, roles, liabilities and responsibilities between two or more parties

An agreement may be held as present whether a collaborative engagement or exchange is or has yet to be registered with TOF®. Additionally, a form of agreement may be held as present outside of or in the absence of registered documentation. Quite simply whenever participants concur on the defining of a role, responsibility, course of action or the like an agreement could be held as present

Although agreements are typically set in written exchange definitions of agreements may use visuals and multimedia such as photos, videos and the like. Any format or type of content may form portions of legally binding, contractual documentation



One person commissioned by another to be present at a set time and location. Appearance may be a billed collaborative engagement or service

Appearance's value as set in collaborative documentation is thought to be constituted by one person’s physical attendance. Successful completion of an appearance may then not necessarily require any additional actions, activities or conduct unless otherwise explicitly detailed

For example, registered contract may stipulate the presence of a publicly recognizable personality [celebrity], be present at a certain time and in a certain place. Unless other responsibilities were stipulated in registered contract such person’s physical attendance could be held as the single requirement necessary for classification of successful completion



The producer or provider in collaboration. Artist is a person whom, utilizing the Biosphere as a member, has categorized him or herself as the creating, providing or producer of materials, treatments, items or services or the like as made available for sale or commissioning

Artist members are believed to have the right to sell their work, performances, activities, complete specific procedures or services in their own unique manner as say in the execution of trained or inherent artistic capabilities, skill sets or comparable talents

Artist may also apply to any member in TOF® whom authorizes transfer of ownership or sale of items, works, composition or products as defined between collaborative participants. Possessing this right of sale presupposes but is not limited to additional capability in transferring  intellectual property rights or copyright ownership if and when applicable

Artist is categorically differentiated from a business and re-sellers of products or materials. Although an artist may sell items or other tangible physical goods, they are not acting purely as a re-seller. Artist's may be deemed to have creative or aesthetic control over items, products or materials as presented for sale

Artist may be thought of as the one who has an almost monopolistic control over their product, service, offering or therein ascribes the value provided during collaborative sale, purchase or commissioning



Identifiable and tangible deliverable as produced, created or crafted. In contract art/work can also be referenced  as "Work" or "Body/Art" or "Content"

Art/Work references the discreetly identifiable results as specified in collaborative commissions, services, engagements, documentation, contracts or in collaborative activity as independently conducted between registered participants

Art/Work is that which has been functionally specified as commissioned or set for ownership transfer by one to a second collaborative participant. Art/work is that which a party produces, provides, creates, applies, completes, concocts, constructs, compiles or likewise delivers in return for or due to consideration of the other party's transfer to them of set costs, fees, charges, payments, remuneration or the like

Art/work may refer to but is not limited by:

i) physical artistic items such as a prints, sculptures, carvings or paintings;

ii) a tattoo or body modification as appearing after being applied or completed;

iii) the recording or similar documentation of a performance, show, event or appearance;

iv) photographs, videos or similar documentation of a participant in collaboration, say a Model;

v) existing and copyrighted content owned as intellectual property such as media, videos, photographs, drawings, sketches, paintings produced or the like

Art/Work may be thought of as fundamentally referencing an identifiable product, service or deliverable separate to a commercial products or potentially mass-produced items


associated documentation

Any data relating to collaborative engagement or exchange

Associated documentation includes but is not limited to registered collaborative engagement or exchange documentation, contracts, copyright registrations, written exchanges, visual references, recordings and the like



When one is physically present at a set time and location. Attendance is held, conducted or set at a specified time and location. Attendance may pertain to a series of timed appointments or to a member’s digital presence, during say a scheduled telephone call or similar appointment

For example if registered contract specifies joint attendance scheduled for 1pm on the 1st of March 2021 at the Royal Albert Hall in London then it's contractually required that registered participants may only be 'in attendance' provided that both are indeed physically present at this specific location [Royal Albert Hall, London], at the time specified [1pm on the 1st of March, 2021]



The Other Fruit®’s bespoke services, applications and platforms. Biosphere includes The Other Blockchain® [TheOtherFruit.io], and various custom distributed ledger technologies. Such applications include but are not limited to the execution of immutable, time specific smart contracts

Biosphere constitutes a member only, digital supra-national space wherein facilitation and security services are tailored to permit member’s autonomous and independent defining of hypermedia collaborative engagement or exchange contractual documentation, immutable decentralized and anonymously coded accounting alongside various financial functions. Biosphere is not a common carrier nor public utility



Restriction of profile visibility thereby becoming 'invisible' to or hidden from certain Biosphere members. Blocking, to block or be blocked describes the optional action taken by members whereby an initiator of blocking actions subsequently restricts their visibility to other members

For one person to be blocked means that this member, as on Biosphere or throughout TOF® services, is not seen nor able to interact with nor view the profile of the one who executed such block

Blocking can be applied individually or to entire countries, as specified by geographical boundaries. The resulting blocking effects as calculated may be in relation to a Biosphere member’s set profile location and may then change or be removed entirely, in tandem with member's location



A secure ledger operating on a distributed network of computers. A blockchain runs on distributed ledger technologies [DLT]. A blockchain is a decentralized, cryptography enhanced form of digital ledger into which data may be chronologically and securely recorded

Use may constitute a decentralized accounting of constantly growing [practically immutable] ‘blocks’. So as to securely store, record and provide TOF® services, The Other Blockchain® anonymizes ledger data as well as use. Thereby TOF® enables blockchain ledger data recall implementation by and for registered participants

TOF® has structured its services so that collaborative engagement conduct, exchange or details and its disclosure to third parties is conducted at relevant member’s personal discretion

TOF® holds that this functionality and implementation of bespoke distributed ledger technology networks permits optimal, personally beneficial utilization of decentralized technologies without loss or degradation of privacy


blockchain-based currency

Intangible digital assets that exists by virtue of ownership records. Blockchain-based currencies, transfers and movements are recorded through use of decentralized [distributed ledger technologies], peer-to-peer networks

Transfers and movements of blockchain-based currencies cannot be easily modified, withdrawn, cancelled nor amended. All such transactions are the sole responsibility of the processor, whether initiated through use of a private digital wallet or any form of blockchain-based currency storage method, medium or technology

TOF® does not control nor advise members as to preferable miner-fees [transaction costs for blockchain-based currency transfers], the desirability or stability of any blockchain-based currency nor blockchain-based currency movements

Due to the encryption and anonymity of blockchain-based currency wallets, including alternate storage methods, at all times TOF® has no insight nor control of a wallet’s balances and use even whether such is attempted to be classified as within or associated with TOF® services


body modification

Marked alterations to a human body as performed by professional technicians. These include treatments, procedures or services like piercings, sub-dermal implants, scarification, splitting and others as performed in the manner and methods independently commissioned in registered contract


body modification artist

Biosphere member category. Body Modification Artist member in TOF® is a of Biosphere member profile classification which is operated by a single individual. This typically references a professional within, but not limited, those who are performing piercing, body alterations, scarification or suspension services and the like



Request to invalidate, dissolve or otherwise terminate binding requirements or responsibilities as contained within registered contract

To cancel is a request that can be generated by either participant in registered contract. This cancel request is to remove themselves from the terms, conditions and responsibilities which were previously entered into during registration of Biosphere contractual documentation. A request to cancel may be presented to TOF®, from and between registered participants, for any number of rationales or reasons



Registered contract is no longer active, enforceable or scheduled for processing. Cancelled is a status label which is applied to registered collaborative engagement or exchange documentation [contracts], and possibly to TOF® services, when such formally dissolved relationships have been agreed to be revoked or removed by relevant parties

Reasons and rationales as to why such documentation or similarly formalized agreements can be cancelled include but are not limited to:

i) requests by participants that precedes completion activity;

ii) Biosphere member's profile account deletion;

iii) inactivity as relates to registered collaborative engagement or exchange;

iv) non-performance or non-communication held as required or as a prerequisite of successful completion as may be registered

Registered collaborative engagements or exchanges may be classified as cancelled within the appropriate, specified time frames following dual member certification as confirmed by participants



Member or user group classifications. Different categories represent distinct Biosphere membership types

Every unique member category has its own customized hypermedia contractual documentation, varied access to functional protections and use of presets, tailored search results, specifically associated keywords including meta-data, certain kinds of map pins as well as other similarly differentiated features that have been customized in accordance to a specific associated area of expertise

For example, hypermedia collaborative engagement documentation templates as available to a Venue category member reference location reservations and contain numerous bespoke functional stipulations for reservations. These are notably different when in comparison to say prepared contractual documentation terms for the Performance Artist category member as the latter may be discussing, searching for and creating significantly different functional forms of collaborative engagements. Biosphere member categories are broadly segmented into members, artists and providers:

Members [clients], including a corporate sub-category, are those Biosphere users whom are believed to primarily be acting as purchasers. Members buy products, services and pay for commissions

Artist [creators], is applied to the producing parties and to those providing a service. Artist's can be performing or more broadly speaking these are the Biosphere users whom actively possess control of their particular offerings and services across any form, method or in any variety of capacities

Providers (services) are those believed to possibly offer a service, location for use, equipment for sale and the like yet may participate in collaborative engagements and exchange in such a manner that is more akin to a pre-defined service offering as opposed to a direct or artistic commission. This is evidenced by collaborative participants engaged with a provider Biosphere member may often and reasonably expect to be able to find a comparable alternate provider as a potential substitute



The officially recorded end to a registered collaborative relationship

The classification of closure typically follows participant member's confirmation. Closure or being closed signifies that TOF® shall register pertinent documentation, including roles and requirements stipulated therein like transfers and payments or charges of any sort, as having been successfully conducted

Following closure classification no further action by TOF® nor registered participants is held as pending, scheduled nor likewise required


code of conduct

A set of principles or guidelines that define appropriate, acceptable behavior. This is the code of conduct as enacted by or between collaborative participants

Codes of conduct apply both to collaborative participant’s digital as well as real world or offline interactions, conduct and activities. A code of conduct may be extrapolated, reasonably considered to exist, in reference to either detailed collaborative engagement documentation, user generated communications, otherwise recorded requirements or combinations of such



When two or more members discuss or actually work together to achieve any shared, chosen outcome or goal. The enactment of recorded interaction and functional boundaries as defined through dynamic exchange so as to describe, determine, control, regulate or conduct any type of sale, transaction, agreement, goal, shared purpose, commission, transaction or purchase that may physically or digitally eventuate may be thought of as collaborations

Collaborations, collaborative engagements and all forms of collaborative exchange set participant’s tangible completion actions, activities, conduct, roles, responsibilities or requirements as in terms and condition

For members, a collaboration may be partially defined as two or more person’s cooperative interactions, perceived or genuinely accommodating, in attempts towards fulfilling jointly defined artistic services, treatments, physical item or product delivery roles and responsibilities as may have been independently agreed to



Any actions taken by members in respect to registered contract or its formulation. Collaborating is an action term indicating the dynamic exchange transpiring between two or more members which describes, defines, determines, controls, or otherwise regulates conduct so as to set or achieve any type of sale, transaction, agreement, goal or shared purpose

Collaborating can reference interaction, discussion and completion. Collaborating may be any action or communication reasonably held as either leading to or contributing towards resulting registration of contractual documentation including purchases and use of TOF® services and functions


collaborative participants

Members working together for or in relation to registered contract. This specifies the two or more people actively, mutually and autonomously engaged in the description, defining, formulating or execution of jointly agreed actions, roles, terms and conditions. Collaborating participants are typically delineated by:

i) a purchaser;

ii) a seller or provider

Both of whom are freely communicating and engaging for a specific purpose which may perhaps be to attain or realize a shared goal or an as yet to be achieved jointly defined outcome

Collaborating members typically consist of one recipient and one provider with the terms and functional requirements from the recipient as well as conditions or stipulations of the provider potentially still to be either defined or completed in any physically tangible sense

Collaborative participant as a title is applied to those undertaking preliminary communication around a shared concept across to those who have successfully concluded registered contract. At all times collaborating members are necessarily acting on their own volition and individually, personally responsible for their real world activities including all results of their actions, however defined or executed



Active users, Biosphere members and people using or associated with TOF® services. Those considered part of the TOF® community may not be collaborative participants, artists, suppliers, providers or activated members and the like



Performance of set conditions, conduct, roles, duties or activities held as pending or required for successful collaboration. Completion requirements, roles, duties, responsibilities, conduct and the like are specified within registered contract and documentation

Achieving completion may be thought of as confirmation that established terms, conditions, functions and responsibilities as independently set have been successfully fulfilled to participant's mutual satisfaction

TOF® comprehensively holds all actions for, towards or pertaining to  completion as independently defined by participants themselves. Completion is always presumed by TOF® to be genuinely executed, in good faith, and conducted only in the manners held as reasonable, proportionate, appropriate and beyond reproach as could be measured by third party, objective review

The use of completion as a term may be for any productive action as performed that is held as contributing to execution of a jointly defined goal, outcome, situation, commission, function or purchase such as in the phrasing ‘working towards completion’. Violations of terms or conditions set within registered contract or any comparably unproductive, destructive or potentially prohibitive actions that somehow restrict achievement of completion are excluded from completion categorization

‘The completion of a collaboration’ means successful, independent execution of payment between collaborative participants as measured by exchange of funds, resources or monies in any variety or currency. Completion or execution of registered contract and real world enactment including all results, outcomes, goal achievements or lack thereof may only be independently reported or conveyed by participants. TOF® may have no methods or means to verify either the authenticity nor veracity of such self-reported events outside of information, data and details provided by participants to TOF®


completion date

When a collaboration is set to be concluded or marked as performed. Completion or closure dates trigger digital security functions in registered contract

Completion or closure dates are specific times, e.g. 3pm GMT on October 28th, 2020. These are explicitly set by participants and recorded in registered contract

Completion date indicates when participant's agree that their responsibilities, terms or conditions of collaboration set the timing for finishing, delivering, concluding, taking receipt, finishing performance, or otherwise closing collaborative activities



Specified associations between member profiles. Connections are created following interaction on The Other Fruit®’s mobile applications, web-application or website

For example, a connection or ‘being connected’ may indicate two Biosphere members who previously engaged in collaboration or communicated in some manner or capacity. Or following collaboration participants are invited to enter a star rating indicating subjective feedback. This star rating may then be displayed as a form of connection with review visible in personal maps

Connections may be for a review, summary or links between member profiles. Visible connections in Biosphere do not reveal collaborative exchange details, discussions between members, previous communications or the like. By any definition connections are not an endorsement or TOF® ranking



Written documentation forming binding, legally enforceable agreement. Contracts are written documentation held to encompass such terms, conditions, roles, responsibilities, financial and digital security functions or requirements of collaboration binding participants in collaboration. Contracts are created by those who wish to record such mutual intent of engagement for their future actions and reference

TOF® contract template documentation is made available to Biosphere members for their independent use. Once contract template have been purchased and registered via TOF® services then collaborative participant’s self-generated terms, conditions, roles and requirements alongside timed digital security functions become legally binding with TOF® authorized on either's behalf to process specified functions as ordered


contract creation charge

TOF®'s direct processing service fee. The contract creation charge is billed once to the purchaser who is referred to as the Purchasing Member

A contract creation charge is a one-time fee paid after Biosphere contract template documentation has been completed to the mutual satisfaction of activated members whom, then acting as registered participants in collaborative engagement or exchange, furthermore wish to formally registered such so as to hold each other liable, responsible and legally bound to the terms, conditions and financial functions as detailed therein



All written communications or multimedia. Content includes images, audio or video recordings either initiated for upload or exchanged in Biosphere. For example, content may refer but is not limited to:

i) text | .TXT | .DOC | .PDF;

ii) images | .JPG | .GIF | .PNG;

iii) design files | .AI | .IND | .PSD;

iv) audio | .MP3 | .FLAC;

v) videos | .MP4 | .AVI

These or any multimedia formats, links or imports from external hosts such as Dropbox, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and the like can be held as content



A processing fee calculated by TOF® for the total value as ordered. So as to initiate processing of an activated Biosphere member’s transfer or settlement order, conversion of fiat currencies into a blockchain-based currency may be required. Preceding execution the receiving member may be required to settle associated conversion charges, costs, fees and the like directly with TOF®

Prior to execution, costs for conversion between currencies and conversion transactions are outlined for member's confirmation. Purchases and financial transactions as may now or in future be facilitated by TOF® typically pertain to digital currencies, otherwise known as cryptocurrencies or blockchain-based currencies, all of which constitute a discrete, billed service for which processing and transfer fees may be owed



A legal right, that grants the creator of an original work or content exclusive rights to determine or decide whether, and under what conditions, this original work or content may be used by others

Copyrights may also be connoted with intellectual property rights, titles or assignments. Protected under Hong Kong Law as well as numerous international conventions and treaties, TOF® permits a range of unique content copyright protection services and functions

Copyright, Ordinance (Cap. 528 Consolidation), 27/06/1997 (1999), No. 92 (No. 95)
“artistic work” covers member categories including body art 
(a) a graphic work, photograph, sculpture or collage, irrespective of artistic quality; (b) a work of architecture being a building or a model for a building; or (c) a work of artistic craftsmanship; “building” includes any fixed structure, and a part of a building or fixed structure;  “graphic work” includes (a) any painting, drawing, diagram, map, chart or plan; and (b) any engraving, etching, lithograph, woodcut or similar work; “photograph” means a recording of light or other radiation on any medium on which an image is produced or from which an image may by any means be produced, and which is not part of a film; “sculpture” includes a cast or model made for purposes of sculpture. [cf. 1988 c. 48 s. 4 U.K.]
“commissioned works” registered contract can transfer rights
(1) Where a work is made on the commission of a person and there is an agreement between the author and the commissioner of the work which expressly provides for the entitlement to the copyright, copyright in the commissioned work belongs to the person who is entitled to the copyright under the agreement
“infringement by making available of copies to the public” TOF® is a member only, private, digital security platform
(1) the making available of copies of the work to the public is an act restricted by copyright in every description of copyright work. HK Copyright, Ordinance (Cap. 528 Consolidation), 27/06/1997 (1999), No. 92 (No. 95) Page 14 / 166 WIPO Database of Intellectual Property Hong Kong Legislative Texts (2) References in this Part to the making available of copies of a work to the public are to the making available of copies of the work, by wire or wireless means, in such a way that members of the public in Hong Kong or elsewhere may access the work from a place and at a time individually chosen by them (such as the making available of copies of works through the service commonly known as the INTERNET). (3) References in this Part to the making available of copies of a work to the public include the making available of the original. (4) The mere provision of physical facilities for enabling the making available of copies of works to the public does not of itself constitute an act of making available of copies of works to the public
“advertisement of sale of artistic work” TOF® is able to promote member content for and on behalf of members
(1) It is not an infringement of copyright in an artistic work to copy it, or to issue or make available copies to the public, for the purpose of advertising the sale of the work. (2) Where a copy which would otherwise be an infringing copy is made in accordance with this section but is subsequently dealt with, the copy is treated as an infringing copy for the purposes of that dealing if that dealing infringes copyright for all subsequent purposes. For this purpose “dealt with” means sold or let for hire, offered or exposed for sale or hire, exhibited in public or distributed. [cf. 1988 c. 48 s. 63 U.K.]
“requirement that right be asserted” time stamped registration proof through privately secured member profile carrying immutable, coded blockchain authentication as from TOF® thereby generates sufficiently robust documentary evidence. TOF® further may act as a copyright checking facility and medium for privately held verification + display of copyright ownership 
(1) A person does not infringe the right conferred by section 89 (right to be identified as author or director) by doing any of the acts mentioned in that section unless the right has been asserted in accordance with the following provisions so as to bind him in relation to that act. (2) The right may be asserted generally, or in relation to any specified act or description of acts— (a) on an assignment of copyright in the work, by including in the instrument effecting the assignment a statement that the author or director asserts in relation to that work his right to be identified; or (b) by instrument in writing signed by the author or director. (3) The right may also be asserted in relation to the public exhibition of an artistic work— (a) by securing that when the author or other first owner of copyright parts with possession of the original, or of a copy made by him or under his direction or control, the author is identified on the original or copy, or on a frame, mount or other thing to which it is attached; or (b) by including in a licence by which the author or other first owner of copyright authorizes the making of copies of the work a written statement signed by or on behalf of the person granting the licence that the author asserts his right to be identified in the event of the public exhibition of a copy made in pursuance of the license
“copyright vesting in international organizations” TOF® indicates, assigns, transfers or otherwise registers individual ownership. For owning members. Controlled by owning members
(1) Where an original literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work— (a) is made by an officer or employee of, or is published by, any international organization; and (b) does not qualify for copyright protection under section 178(qualification by reference to author), copyright nevertheless subsists in the work by virtue of this section and the organization is the first owner of that copyright. (2) Copyright of which an international organization is first owner by virtue of this section continues to subsist until the end of the period of 50 years from the end of the calendar year in which the work was made or such longer period as may be specified by the Chief Executive by regulation under subsection (4). (Amended 22 of 1999 s. 3) (3) An international organization is deemed to have, and to have had at all material times, the legal capacities of a body corporate for the purpose of holding, dealing with and enforcing copyright, and in connection with all legal proceedings relating to copyright

copyright registration

Creation of registrations and immutable data in blockchain as claim of copyright ownership to specified content. The coded and publicly anonymous process implements distributed ledger technologies, IPFS encryption and is made available for member purchase

Copyright registration charge is a one-time processing fee paid to The Other Fruit® after order form with attached content, intended for entry in blockchain and registration, has been completed to the satisfaction of the purchaser who furthermore wishes for such content and descriptions being formally and immutably registered in distributed ledger technologies and across various networks

The copyright registration process results in purchaser independently holding time-stamped 'block' creation and associated verification with independent responsibility for its use. Purchaser also holds personal responsibility for the visual or thumbnail representation of their registered content as placed on its dedicated web address, specific URL results page on TheOtherFruit.io, as well as the use or dissemination of registered content's IPFS multihash key


copyright ownership

Copyright ownership may automatically be extended to uploading member's content

A member may register, upload or otherwise submit photographs, recordings and various formats of multimedia or files including supportive or descriptive documentation of what is, as a prerequisite, held by TOF® to be their art, work, creation, composition, multimedia or the like

Any such uploaded or exchanged content on Biosphere, declared as owner-controlled, is believed by TOF® to be solely in the uploading member’s personal and full copyright control thus allowing use or disposal of such as he or she deems appropriate



Member category typically classifying established business entities operating a Biosphere profile account. Corporate members include limited corporations, multinational and the like whom may wish to engage in collaborative engagements, exchange and various registered agreements or commissions

Corporate members may have a general account under their brand name, for example Apple or Samsung or Louis Vuitton or Chanel, yet as members conduct TOF® service purchases or become registered participants then act as identifiable, single individual Purchasing Members-


Specific monetary amount set for transfer or application, using any currency or channel. Credit, possibly also referred to as control ownership portion or percentage of RWSC®, is a specific figure due either for transfer or processing by TOF® to a receiver


display name 

Member's self-selected Biosphere profile title. A display name is independently chosen and sets one visible platform-identifier of what may be a name, title or identifier other than the controlling member's birth or legal name. Display names can constitute a fictitious title, moniker, pseudonym, nickname or alias



TOF® recorded, evidence-based written requests for third party resolution assistance in relation to registered contract completion or associated activity. Disputes are recorded by participants actively engaged in registered contract and are then received, collated, investigated and ruled on by TOF®'s Tribunal department

A Dispute may be opened in such cases when a collaborative participant independently believes that he or she is unable to independently resolve a disagreement, misunderstanding, conflict, collaboration has reached a practical impasse or is faced with similarly complicating or restrictive circumstances during registered contract

Disputes are filed to seek third party ruling in resolution with the process itself held as a form of impartial, binding adjudication, arbitration or mediation. Participant's registered contract, completion related activities, roles, requirements and responsibilities as detailed therein are necessarily enacted by participants outside of TOF®'s view, control and influence

Dispute data, insights or performance information is controlled by collaborative participant’s and reflected in their recording, documentation and submission of accurate evidence in Tribunal investigation and subsequent ruling which they independently and respectively hold full responsibility for


double confirmation

Any member ordered action or process subsequently confirmed by TOF®

TOF® registrations and those of double confirmation may include coded entry in blockchain, such as in The Other Blockchain® and or other TOF® controlled DLT networks. Double confirmation may become a publicly recorded, time-stamped, immutable transaction in such ledger entries across distributed ledger technologies to thereby allow future, decentralized recall and implementation


dual member

Process whereby registered participants jointly and respectively confirm mutual independent agreement with terms, conditions, actions or the like. Dual member certification records joint, mutual agreement as received from participants in relation to terms, conditions or details of collaborative engagement, exchange, completion requirements, timing, various intricacies or stipulations around registered contract, exchange and the like

Dual member certification extends into a number of collaborations, project decisions and activity. Dual Member confirmation is held to indicate collaborating parties willfully state, declare and acknowledge that both share the same intention as to the manner, method, form or mode of proceeding as has been described, outlined, specified or otherwise indicated within relevant documentation or data

Dual member confirmation may extend to on-Biosphere confirmation, as where say an agreement or TOF® order is been finalized by members thereby authorizing fund transfers, digital security functions, registrations or the like. Dual member certification may be required when, but not limited to, such actions as:

i) when a collaborative agreement or contract has been purchased for registration and ownership;

ii) physical items, goods or materials being sent, delivered or transported which are then to be inspected or otherwise registered as successfully received;

iii) following the finishing [completion] of any service, procedure or offering [say for example a timed tattoo application session];

iv) where any changes, charges, updated amounts or costs may be adjusted or added to registered collaborative engagement documentation or contractual agreements;

v) accepting proceeding with actions proposed by a third party that do influence collaborative engagements [such as dispute rulings as may be requested to be initiated and enacted in cases of forced resolution];

vi) rescheduling of set timings or agreed completion dates as well as in other similar events or situations



Period of inactivity wherein Purchasing Member or registered participant has not engaged with nor reasonably communicated sufficient responses to TOF® for two weeks [336 hours] or longer

Following expiry classification all associated responsibilities and functions of registered contract, TOF® orders and purchases may be closed or processed at TOF®’s reasonable discretion



Transferable monetary values using any fiat or digital currency

Funds can reference amounts contractually specified as owed, be processed at specific times or such funds owed upon certain events as may transpire and relate to registered contract or TOF® services and purchases. For example, as when payment is executed between participants in registered contract wherein one individual directly processes an exchange of monies [funds] to another


for sale

A preset offering of goods, services, products or the like as independently set for display by members in digital posts on Biosphere's global map

For example, an equipment Supplier can create and then post a 'for sale' pin outlining their offer whereby Purchasing Member would receive a discount in buying two set items from their available inventory

When an interested collaborative participant clicks purchase of this 'for sale' offering they are taken to confirmation portions in collaborative engagement or exchange documentation so as to execute expedited formalization upon participant's mutual, independent agreement with associated terms, conditions, responsibilities and the like



TOF® restriction so a controller becomes unable to conduct Biosphere activity using his or her 'inactive' member account. Inactive may be applied to a member account by TOF® for a limited, specific period of time

Inactive is most commonly applied to profile accounts which require its controller to complete additional steps in Biosphere membership registration or perform outstanding actions such as submitting evidence in relation to investigations, identity confirmation, financial methods, financial processing confirmations or the like

Inactive accounts may appear in Biosphere's global map, search results or listings yet communication between an inactive account with other non-restricted or otherwise activated Biosphere members may not be possible


ip sales contract

Intellectual Property Sales Contracts are sets of documentation available to certain activated members in Biosphere for purchase

IP Sale contracts templates are provided to facilitate independent, autonomous and self-defined legal binding to sales, assignments and transfers of copyrights in accordance with terms and conditions set between parties in registered contract



A situation whereby participants have reached an impasse thereby prohibiting being reasonably able to proceed without third party intervention

Irresolvable or non-resolvable applies most commonly to registered participant’s communications and exchanges, for achieving any proposed actions or conduct, wherein the quality of such has to all effects, after concerted and considerable effort to rectify autonomously has become unproductive or unsustainable

Irresolvable or non-resolvable is only applicable to collaborative participant’s self-reported status as pertains to registered contract



Possible extent of amounts owed in billing calculations for all charges or fees. Limits are in relation to TOF® purchases, orders and registered contract

Limits for any functions processed by TOF® are set in registered collaborative engagement and exchange documentation. Purchasing Member is comprehensively financially responsible for owed fees and charges quantified therein

For example, a registered contract valued at $100 USD can stipulate an 80% cancellation charge. If Purchasing Member, acting as a registered collaborative participant, subsequently fails to attend TOF® holds authorization to execute settlement billing of $80 USD in verified cases of such material breach or failure of registered contract's completion

Settlement and the limits executed by TOF® never exceed total documented values in registered contract and are separate from all other TOF® service related transaction costs, fees, charges or the like



Geographically unique space or area able to be identified on a map. Location can be specified using a global positioning system [GPS], or otherwise marked using a positioning indication such as longitude and latitude. Locations include any where people are able to physically meet or conduct activity

The condition, state, acceptability, safety or particulars of any location are not verified nor endorsed by TOF®. All locations specified in Biosphere, registered contract or pertaining to collaborative exchanges or engagements of any kind are independently set by members

At all times collaborative participants are understood by TOF® to be proceeding with collaborative activity, engagement, exchange or similar actions that are conducted in lawful, jointly acceptable and safe locations



Digital representation of a single, private individual assigned a unique profile account for use throughout TOF® platforms thereby allowing him or her to conduct digital activity on Biosphere and engage TOF® services

Member activities can be thought of as occurring, transpiring or taking place within a supra-national digital sphere not solely associated with any one country, law, legal jurisdiction or set of requirements outside of Terms currently or as may be specified

Members are personally responsible for adherence to Terms as well as those in registered contract as such persons have independently chosen to engage in or otherwise execute



Whereby one participant in registered contract is evidenced to have intentionally or mistakenly distorted one or more facts as pertains to collaboration terms, conditions, requirements of completion, situations, personal capabilities or any such comparable hindrance to performance or delivery of services and the like

Definitions of misrepresented may include, but not limited to, situations whereby:

i) a genuine and new item was set for purchase yet a fake, used or copy of such item was received by the purchaser;

ii) photos or descriptions of an item or location are evidenced to be objectively and significantly different when viewed in person;

iii) services, goods or procedures are objectively evidenced as not being able to be completed in the manner or to the quality and standards as initially agreed;

iv) proposed courses of action cannot be reasonably considered as viable alternates so as to substitute for initial descriptions of registered collaborative engagement or exchange agreements and the like



Member category of a person who’s look, figure, appearance or presence itself constitutes a service or documentation of such is likewise held to be a valuable deliverable. To a Model member typically means, in and of him or herself, the Model is some form or kind of ‘personality’ whereby once recorded, documented, photographed or the like their look and appearance may be thought of as constituting a form of intellectual property

Model's appearance in say photographs or participation at an event can be a billable service. Models are typically defined as collaborative participants commissioned whom make appearances, performances, pose for or engage in photographic or video recordings and the like

By way of example, a Model may be commissioned for the purposes of taking numerous photos which would then be selected and used to, potentially, enhance or add value to marketing or promotional material by display or inclusion of such photographs depicting Model in such publication



Whereby either a participant or some physical goods, materials, or items are evidenced as not present at the specified location in or by the appointed time. By way of example non-arrival may apply, but is not limited to, scenarios where:

i) participant in registered contract ordered an item of clothing and following the scheduled time of delivery such item has not been received by its purchaser;

ii) a meeting between participants in registered contract was set yet one participant arrives at the specified time and place only to find the confirmed location vacant, and so on


open collaborations

Digital pin containing written and visual content of any concept, idea or description. Open collaboration pins are posting types made freely available for members independent definition, discovery, discussion and selection

For example, an Artist member can describe their ideal future project, place such descriptions with photos in a pin marker which becomes displayed for a set time in a specific location on Biosphere's global map. This 'open collaboration' pin thereby allows other member's review of such concept with interested, potential collaborative participants then able to verify sufficiently available finances so as to proceed and discuss posted collaborative details further directly with such pin's creator

Conversely, a member could describe a style or kind of artwork or body modification they are actively seeking in their 'open collaboration' pin so that an appropriate Artist or Provider, with the capacity to fulfill such a request, could then be able to contact said posting member for the purpose of defining a future collaboration as would become set in registered contract

Pins are created at member's sole discretion, judgement and responsibility



Official request for TOF®'s processing of digital services subsequently fulfilled on behalf of the Purchasing Member

Orders necessarily imply and inherently contain owed amounts deducted by TOF®. 'Ordered' is where such a request for digital services or functions as purchased have been received and entered for processing by TOF® yet may require additional time for registration or similar processing confirmations so as to then be fully completed. Orders are processed in full by TOF® at our reasonably and timely convenience



Monetary values or amounts owed by one participant in registered contract as remuneration to another

Payments can be the cost due for completed collaboration as independently recorded and exchanged between participants in registered contract which directly relate to documented costs of such collaborative activity

Payments may be recorded or indicated on Biosphere as specific numerical figures, most frequently in United States Dollars [USD] equivalents. Payments are ultimately processed in any chosen currency or medium of financial exchange


payment method

Member's registered sources of funding authorized with TOF® for billing or otherwise deducting owed amounts from

Most frequently an activated member's Biosphere payment method is a credit card such as that issued by Visa, American Express or MasterCard. An activated member's payment method can include accounts with various merchants such as PayPal or the like



Specific channels or destinations into which currencies are able to be transferred, transmitted or otherwise sent for receipt

An activated member may own and operate digital blockchain-based currency wallets, if set as a payout channel this member can receive funds into such wallet



Performance can be classified in two ways;

a) show, display, presentation, recital, exhibition or the like that may be in front of an audience;

b) action as towards fulfillment of registered contract

Recording or documentation of either performance classification can be held as resulting in work which, measured as a discretely identifiable deliverable, remains subject to copyright protection or sale. TOF® thereby differentiates "Collaboration Contracts" from "IP Sales Contracts"

For example, an Artist may conduct a performance on stage at a scheduled event. Artist is able to specify their stage performance is a single collaborative engagement under one registered contract. Artist’s physical stage performance and completion of registered contract may itself be digitally recorded, videoed and photographed

Following Artist's performance, recordings of performance are able to be classified as copyrighted content belonging to Artist him or herself. Recordings may be entirely separate from Artist's previous, physical performance

In such case, Artist is able to either include copyrights to performance's recording within initial registered contract or have performance recording's sold separately

Purchasing Member could make payments once for Artist's physically undertaking of performance and again, as a separate registered contract, for sale of copyright to performance’s recordings

This division of performance as a billable action and copyrights sold separately extends to "Art/Work" or "Body/Art" or "Work" or "Content". For examples of this differentiation in other member categories;

i) Tattoo Artist may bill once for designing a tattoo composition and then again for its application on skin and then again for sale of the copyright to this design for its commercial use;

ii) Model may bill for physically attending an engagement and then again for copyright to commercially use recordings or documentation of their attendance;

iii) Body Modification Artist may bill once for completion of session as service or treatment and then again for copyright to commercially use documentation, recording or filming of session, and so on


personally identifiable information

Personally identifiable information is any data which can be used to identify a person’s real world, off-line or non-digital identity

Personally identifiable information could for example include identification documents like passports or drivers licenses, financial information such as bank accounts or credit cards, delivery addresses, phone numbers, personal email addresses and the like


processing fee

TOF® service charge billed one-time to the Purchasing Member. The specific owed amount is listed on order documentation and requires Purchasing Member's approval prior to enactment

Processing fees for TOF® service purchases are deducted by TOF® and possibly at times of registered contract adjustment, closure, expiration, settlement, cancellation, registered completion or the like



Digital representation of controller as a member which is visible on Biosphere. Profiles are assigned unique identification numbers and signature keys separately recorded outside of Biosphere. Profiles are registered between one person and TOF® so as to permit Biosphere utilization and purchase of TOF® services

One real world, physical person is connected to a Biosphere member profile. This identification is protected with associated controller, at such a person’s choice and discretion, only being recognizable or identifiable in Biosphere through their visible member profile or otherwise independently managed digital identity.

Profiles are created and controlled by one private individual. Biosphere content displayed or chosen for upload may or may not, at their sole discretion, represent their actual real world identity



Member category for those offering merchandise, equipment or a variety of other services for purchase

As an example, a Provider for Performance Artists could be a vendor or reseller of performance related gear with an inventory of mats, straps, rigging and various tools or equipment


proprietary information

Data or content as conveyed in any format that constitutes a type of private property, confidential or privileged information neither intended nor authorized for public or uncontrolled dissemination

Private or proprietary information may otherwise be referred to as members personal details, confidential or privileged information. Public or uncontrolled dissemination can include restrictions of broadcasting or release across Biosphere

For example, an Artist is commissioned to create a composition in an upcoming exhibition with the particulars of that exhibition [its date and sponsors and location], are specified as private. As such registered participants are expected not to share such exhibition details with any unauthorized or third party


purchasing member

One who buys TOF® services via Biosphere

Purchasing Member is a single, real world physical person, recognizable and identifiable as activated through Biosphere [activated meaning having firstly undergone verification of official, and typically centrally issued such as government, form of identification]. A Purchasing Member secondly authorizes registered payment and payout methods, typically including a credit card and bank account. Only this one, activated, Purchasing Member is able to purchase TOF® services

The Purchasing Member relationship is directly between a single, activated Biosphere member with TOF®. To and via TOF® the Purchasing Member is expected to settle all amounts owed at the time of order or transaction

Registered collaborative participants are responsible for transfer costs relating to transactions or movements of funds as Purchasing Member may order. This responsibility extends to all cases, whether such funds are to be received into Purchasing Member’s registered Biosphere account, via TOF® or sent to other third party service provider or merchant accounts


real world

Differentiates members physical, independent actions and conduct. Real world or tangible being physical actions and conduct are as such outside of TOF®'s purview. Real world or tangible conduct and actions irrefutably do not involve TOF® services

For example, a registered participant's physical printing; physical storing; private filing; non-digital reference to or execution of believed physical actions towards responsibilities detailed within registered contract including disclosures of documentation or references to third parties and the like falls wholly outside TOF®'s view, responsibility and control. These are real world actions

By comparison when an individual plays an online video game their roles, conduct and purchases during such a game is said to constitute engagements within a purely digital sphere. What this person may decide to do before or after playing and logging out from this online game constitutes their real world activity

TOF®’s digital sphere, to continue the analogy, pertains to the member-defined and independent facilitation of inter-member communications; member’s ability for defining and formalizing registrations of collaborative engagement or exchange documentation as well as processing of time specific digital security functional processing as precisely, digitally quantified


real-world smart contract®

TOF®’s bespoke, trademarked and digitally enacted security + utility tokens. RWSC® is used in processing TOF®’s internally developed systems across distributed ledger technologies

RWSC®'s use and process permits anonymously coded, blockchain enforced transmissions and timed smart-contract execution of registered collaborative engagement and exchange contractual documentation thereby enhancing the security and exchange or conversion possibilities through TOF® for registered participants

The RWSC® process may further be utilized independently of collaborative engagement documentation or adjusted by members. Control and ownership of an RWSC® can become transferable, flexibly valued and privately set. This process represents a unique implementation of a digital security tokens and currencies utilization resulting in customized, internationally flexible conversion achievement through TOF®


receiving member

Registered participant either expecting or whom has received a commissioned purchase, sale, transaction or similar deliverable

The receiving member may be thought of as the commissioner, purchaser or buyer in collaborative engagement or exchange

Receiving member may, for example, be expecting to personally take receipt of goods, products or other similar physical items as delivered to an address or to personally undergo a treatment, service, process, procedure or the like which is to be performed by another registered participant



Official processing by TOF®. Being in registration describes the  time period when a document, transaction, order, invoice, form of content, multimedia, file, receipt or the like is scheduled to undergo processing by TOF® yet not all necessary steps or actions for registration have been executed

Registration process is typically held to commence at the time of TOF® service purchase. For collaborative engagement documentation, orders or transactions to be registered may include creation of and execution of associated digital security functions

The registered classification may be added to any formally purchased and participant-generated legally binding collaborative documentation which also therein details subsequent digital security function processes scheduled for execution by TOF®

TOF® registration may include coded entry in blockchain, such as in The Other Blockchain® and or other TOF® controlled DLT networks. Double confirmation may become a publicly recorded, time-stamped, immutable transaction in such ledger entries across distributed ledger technologies to thereby allow future, decentralized recall and implementation


registered contract

Written, binding agreement independently constructed on Biosphere between two or more participants and then officially purchased with such process recorded with TOF®

A registered contract, registered collaborative engagement or registered collaborative exchange documentation reference completed, formalized, reviewed, legally binding, written sets of contractual documentation containing specifications and details for digital security function execution placed by TOF® under one unique project title for processing on participant's behalf

Registered documentation can undergo double-blind and further dual accounting using anonymously coded, immutable entry in blockchains, as those in The Other Blockchain® [TheOtherFruit.io] and also become represented in RWSC® ownership including temporary or lasting RWSC® control assignment across various distributed ledger technologies and networks

Timings and TOF® digital security function details of registered contract are safeguarded, substantiated through and may be enforced or executed by TOF®. Registered contracts may be afforded financial function protections including billing pre-authorization as well as Tribunal dispute resolution possibilities in the event of collaborative participant initiated requests for investigation and rulings on disagreements or situations deemed independently non-resolvable

TOF® facilitates the purchase of hypermedia collaborative engagement contractual documentation templates and enacts digital security functions or protections as may be specifically purchased by a single, unique individual yet may have no knowledge nor involvement with any action outside of Biosphere



Participant’s adjustment to scheduled timings for completion of registered contract

Time adjustments may include but are not limited to the re-setting of meeting times, a changing of delivery dates or similar alterations to deadlines as pertain to participant’s collaborative engagement or exchange  activity, roles, responsibilities or actions



TOF®'s processing of financial transactions for payments owed. Settlement protections in registered contract authorizes TOF® to deduct and transfer owed amounts, values or totals as have been quantified by registered participants

Owed amounts as deducted, debited or withdrawn as processed by TOF®, following settlement billing ruling or initiation, may be transferred into participant registered payout channels, executed in any currency

Settlement is most commonly applied to situations whereby a registered producing or providing participant has neither independently received payment nor any tangible form of remuneration from owing registered participant, typically classified as the purchaser or buyer. This outstanding amount, owed payment, is calculated by registered contract

Settlement totals may include additional charges or costs incurred by cancellation or any others as set in registered contract. Tribunal or third party investigation and rulings stipulate total amounts for settlement. Settlement of registered contract with additional charges or costs remain independent to TOF® services, purchases and fees



Member category for businesses offering merchandise, items or products for purchase

For example, a Supplier for Tattoo Artists could include a vendor or reseller of tattooing equipment who lists their inventory of tattooing inks, tattooing needles, tattoo furniture, protective materials for tattoo processes and others for sale in Biosphere


selling member

Participant responsible for delivery of an item, service or product. Such delivery and accepted receipt is set as a term or condition of successful completion and can be in relation to either physical items or performed services as in treatments, procedures or the like

Purchasing Member may not be specified as liable for payment in registered contract until such time of finalizing, closing, cancelling or completing. Collaborative participants are responsible for any transfer or transaction costs as may be ordered, both in cases whether such funds are received into Biosphere or out of, to other third party service providers, accounts, merchants or the like


sending member

Participant actively in control of a certain good, product or other such tangible item and likewise responsible for the physical delivery of such to a specified secondary location 

Often a term or condition in registered contract will be a requirement for the sending member to utilize third party delivery or transportation providers such as the Postal Service, UPS, FedEx, DHL and the like. Sending members assume all liability and responsibility for the quality, authenticity and successful receipt of sent goods, products, items or the like

Sending members are responsible and liable for any perceived, claimed, actual or potential loss including replacements, rejection or non-acceptance by receiving participant in registered contract as well as for situations or circumstances resulting in non-delivery



Allocated times in registered contract intended for completion or achievement of collaboration related activity

Sessions often pertain to registered participant's schedule for conducting treatments, procedures, offerings or fulfillment of similar privately performed services which can be held as either fully or partially constituting completion

For example, a tattoo session may start at 1pm and go until 6pm with the working time itself being measured as these five hours, i.e. 1pm to 6pm which totals five [5] session hours. When setting pricing such may be measured using this per-hour metric. Session may be semantically held as synonymous with per-session-hour



Any post or communication deemed unnecessarily frequent, inappropriate, unhelpful, impracticable, insistent, false or otherwise bothersome

Spam classification may also apply to what has been created, posted or shared for the purposes of promoting sales yet may in actuality offer no tangible, genuine, immediate benefit or reasonable value to Biosphere members

Spam classification can pertain to private and publicly broadcasted member communications, exchanges or interactions with The Other Fruit® or between members. Spam is defined at TOF®’s sole discretion and handled in any manner deemed reasonably appropriate



The intentional application of pigmentation using specialist inks applied below the top layer of human skin tissue completed using a fine tipped puncturing tool most frequently held in specialized machines or ‘tattoo guns’ allowing their rapid movement so as to form the intended markings and resulting patterns which then may become more or less permanently retained by or within the receiver's dermis



Specified stipulations that structure, shape or define binding contract

Terms as pertain to members include the responsibilities, penalties, requirements and role specifications for utilization and implementation of Biosphere as well as TOF® services

For example, contained in these Terms is a stipulation of privacy.  This confidentiality of proprietary information Term enforced by TOF® partially dictates Biosphere utilization including members associated online and offline services as derived or arranged therefrom

Meaning registered collaborative participants knowledge of data being proprietary information as may have been gained via their use of Biosphere or TOF® service cannot then share such specified information with anyone other than appropriately authorized parties either on TOF® or via any alternate channel, medium or technology

Terms and conditions as initiated by and between participants in registered contract can include participant's agreement to established cancellation policies, service descriptions, timings, locations and the like, detailed therein


tip function

An increase of recorded payment amount set for transfer, held as a type of gratuity 

Tip functions are independently executed, outside of TOF®'s control and knowledge. Likewise payment transfers are conducted independently by and between participants in registered contract despite [possible accounting facilitation of such in Biosphere or via TOF® services


third party

External, sovereign entities such as identifiable individuals or businesses whose actions cannot be reasonably considered as in one’s control. Third party may be used in two ways:

i) as an indirect participant utilized to assist with various activities or services in some way or form, such as from external providers and or Tribunal;

ii) completely unknown person, persons or groups

For example service providers such as Google Maps are responsible for providing and controlling their services as may be implemented in Biosphere through an API. This service is consequently a third party to both members and to TOF® itself

Ad-hoc, TOF®'s Tribunal department may be requested to act as a third party in relation to Dispute rulings of registered contract as requested participants. Tribunal's decisions and rulings are not controlled by participants. The Tribunal is a third party in Dispute rulings as it does not constitute a party of or participant in registered contract

If members have their login information become known by an unauthorized third party [second sense or use of third party] they would be required to immediately report such breach directly to TOF®



TOF® services that relate to a movement of finances in any currency or form. Transactions can be in relation to any TOF® services activity as defined or requested by Purchasing Member through Biosphere. Transactions do not directly pertain to:

i) details, roles, responsibilities, conduct or the like as may be contained or detailed within registered contract;

ii) data specified between collaborative engagement or exchange participant’s constituting completion;

iii) information relating to the specifics or descriptions and delivery of physical products;

iv) expected conduct of performance or achieved outcome of treatment, procedure, offering or work;

v) various privately held interactions or exchanges such as payments and direct payment transfers;

vi) use of wallets or any such independent participant activity



A participant ordered investigation and resolution department for registered contracts. Tribunal is maintained by TOF® and can be requested to act as an independent third party to issue outcome rulings as pertain to registered contract

The Tribunal as a department is distinct from and separate to Biosphere including any TOF® services, mobile applications, web-application and website operations

Tribunal endeavors to reach decisions, recommendations and rulings only using authenticated, recorded, factual evidence that has been submitted by participants in registered contract

The Tribunal may be involved so as to enact resolution rulings in the event where registered participants are themselves somehow unable or unwilling to independently reach or proceed with a productive understanding or resolution. The Tribunal conducts investigations and rulings based on:

i) terms and details contained within purchased and registered digital, formalized collaborative engagement contractual documentation including agreements following their expiry, set completion date, participant requested cancellations or the like;

ii) self-reported subsequent events, actions, conduct and requirements only as may be objectively evidenced and have become known to Tribunal following their submission by a registered participant;

iii) comparable issues and situations reasonably requiring investigation and ruling so as to reach closure or resolution as may be arising from independent member conduct



When TOF® has been unable to successfully contact or communicate with a registered participant or member via any medium for a period of five days [120 hours] or longer

Unavailable classification may have numerous repercussions in relation to collaborative engagement or exchange activity and registered contracts, particularly in consideration of adherence with formally entered timelines, delivery deadlines and other such set responsibilities and requirements

To the fullest extents permissible by law TOF® accepts no liability nor responsibility of any actual, claimed or perceived loss as could result from any person’s classification as unavailable especially as relates to Biosphere or TOF® services or the like



Documentation, terms or claims evidenced as being genuine. To have some statement, data or set of details in any form classified as "verified" indicates that to the best of all available knowledge such is factually accurate or true

After becoming verified insofar as securing full approval of such specification, this title is derived or been defined as applied to registered activity, purchase, order, response, review, submission, upload, documentation or generation of the like and can be set for immediate processing by TOF®

For example, verified can be applied to registered participant’s initiation of changes to contract as well as subsequently authenticated evidence as submitted by participants during disagreement resolution



Venue or venues refer to:

i) Biosphere member category;

ii) ‘brick and mortar’ physical locations, structures, rooms or similar specifically identifiable and geographically contained real world environments to which access may be provided by one person to another and wherein people may conduct activities as independently defined and agreed

Venue as used on Biosphere may indicate such member profile as visible and similarly used in reference a physical location within registered contract. Venue locations could for example be thought of as say more traditional tattoo studios right across to hotel rooms, stages, halls, theaters and or private residences

Venue profile controllers whom are providing or arranging use of such locations are presumed to personally have full legal, on-site authority to both grant access to as well as authorize the conducting, transpiring, proceeding, enacting and or execution of any and all activities or actions as may be independently specified between registered participants in contract

Ensuring a Venue operator's on-site authority in facilitating any service, conduct, performance, treatment, undertaking or the like is and remains the sole responsibility of registered participants



Storage method for blockchain-based currencies, a [crypto] wallet

Use, balances, maintenance, cold-storage and control of any such wallet including funds or currencies that may or may not be present therein are independently decided and controlled by owners

A ‘satoshi’ is the smallest possible Bitcoin able to be transferred, measuring 0.00000001 BTC. Other blockchain-based currency forms and types have varied limitations. Every processed transfer may have associated transaction, transfer and miner-fees due to execution in distributed ledger technologies and networks and typically become payable in the associated blockchain-based currency

Due to inherent encryption and anonymity of wallets, TOF® has no insight nor control of a wallet's balances or use, neither within nor outside of Biosphere or as may pertain to any TOF® services



Performance of actions or conduct towards providing, enacting, executing or otherwise fulfilling collaborative engagement or exchange

For example, a Tattoo Artist’s work may encompass such activities as discussing a design, drawing or creating the layout, reviewing and finalizing session details with the purchaser, preparing their working space or materials as necessary for tattoo's application as well as conducting the application of the tattoo itself

In such an example the Tattoo Artist’s private activities such as replying to personal messages, meal breaks and transportation times to or from working locations alongside similar activities that may have no direct effect towards actual execution of registered collaborative engagement or exchange completion as mutually defined in contract could not be considered work

The tangible consequences of any work or working actions including conduct which participants may wish to execute, perform or enact are entirely completed off Biosphere


working area

Measurable vicinity pre-determined as necessary to maintain in order to successfully conduct a service, treatment, procedure or the like. A working area may be any portion or clearly defined area within a physical location, room, place, hall, studio, house or such where a registered participant conducts specific activities

For example an Artist attending an event, during which their place of work within said location becomes their working area into which attendees, viewers or guests should not step or otherwise come too close to because doing so would prohibit said Artist from proceeding in the manner required

As another example, a Tattoo Artist’s working area could include space within studios, halls, theaters or a private residence that would throughout the application of a tattoo be necessary to restrict access by third parties to so as not to in anyway adversely affect the concentration of or otherwise impede the conducting of interaction between Tattoo Artist and receiver of the tattoo itself

It is understood by members that access to working areas by unauthorized persons may need to be restricted so that one is able to successfully, safely and fully complete set activities
