Ownership and Restrictions on Use
The information and materials provided on or through the Site, including any data, text, designs, graphics, images, photographs, illustrations, audio and video clips, logos, icons and links (collectively, the "Materials"), are intended to educate and inform you about the events, venues and other products and services offered or described on the Site. Although Live Nation Merchandise strives to provide Materials that are both useful and accurate, the nature of the data and other information contained on the Site is subject to frequent change. In addition, the facts and circumstances of every situation differ. Accordingly, although Live Nation Merchandise endeavors to use reasonable care in assembling the Materials, the Materials may not be up-to-date, accurate or complete. Moreover, portions of the Materials have been contributed to the Site by various artists and other persons. The inclusion of such information does not indicate any approval or endorsement thereof, and Live Nation Merchandise expressly disclaims any liability with respect to the foregoing.
Subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you may only download one (1) copy of any Materials displayed on the Site, and you may use such downloaded Materials solely for your personal, non-commercial use, provided that you retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained therein. Live Nation Merchandise cannot guarantee that technical difficulties will not occur during the download of the Materials or that the Materials will download successfully. You may not engage in any unauthorized use, copying, or distribution of any of the Materials. For example, you may not otherwise reproduce, display, publicly perform, or distribute the Materials in any way for any public or commercial purpose. You may not alter or modify any part of the Site other than as may be reasonably necessary to use the Site for its intended purpose. Modification or use of the Materials for any purpose other than as expressly authorized in this Agreement is a violation of our copyright and other proprietary rights, and is strictly prohibited.
The Site, including all Site software, databases, proprietary information and Materials (and any intellectual property and other rights relating thereto) including, without limitation, the selection, sequence and "look and feel" and arrangement of items, is owned and operated by Live Nation Merchandise in conjunction with others pursuant to contractual arrangements, and will remain the property of Live Nation Merchandise and its licensors and suppliers. The Site is protected by U.S. and international copyright, trademark and other laws, and you acknowledge that these rights are valid and enforceable. You further acknowledge that you do not acquire any ownership rights by using the Site or the Materials.
The trademarks, logos, and service marks displayed on the Site (collectively the "Trademarks") are the registered and unregistered trademarks of Live Nation Merchandise, Live Nation Merchandise's licensors and suppliers, and others. The Trademarks owned by Live Nation Merchandise, whether registered or unregistered, may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not offered by Live Nation Merchandise, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion with customers, or in any manner that disparages Live Nation Merchandise. Nothing contained on the Site should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license or right to use any Trademark without the express written permission of Live Nation Merchandise, Live Nation Merchandise's licensors or suppliers, or the third party owner of any such Trademark. Misuse of any Trademarks is prohibited, and Live Nation Merchandise will aggressively enforce its intellectual property rights in such Trademarks, including via civil and criminal proceedings.
You agree that your use of other internet websites and resources including, without limitation, your use of any content, information, data, advertising, products or other materials on or available through such websites and resources, is at your own risk and is subject to the terms and conditions of use applicable to such sites and resources.
Claims of Copyright Infringement
We respect the intellectual property rights of others, and we ask our users to do the same. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by Live Nation Merchandise infringe your copyright (for example, materials posted by Live Nation Merchandise on one of our Forums), you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Live Nation Merchandise to locate the material on the Site; (iv) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (v) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Additionally, if you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed by Live Nation Merchandise against you, the DMCA permits you to send Live Nation Merchandise a counter-notice.
Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
