If you live outside of California, you waive any other statute, law, or rule of similar effect in your jurisdiction.

We respect the intellectual property rights of others and ask that you do as well. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and similar or equivalent other local laws that may apply.
