don't believe it's required but leaving it out really could cause you problems. I either work them into a contact page or put them on a popup window and a little link in like 8pt somewhere.
I run a local band music site very similar to mp3.com and I need them on the site to say I can do things like delete overly explicit mp3s, edit bios and profiles as needed, and that all content uploaded to my site gives me rights to do whatever I want with related to the site/promotion company. I also have record labels on the site that will get a mailer so I include what information I will submit to various labels and venues. It's really to cover my own *** so I won't look like a jerk when i start doing things and can't get sued when I use a band's image in an ad or something.
