RustyBrick shall not be limited in any way in our use, commercial or otherwise, of any non-PII posted to the Service, and you hereby waive any moral rights in, and approval rights and rights of compensation to, all such non-PII that you post to the Service or otherwise provide to us. Further, we reserve the express right to incorporate any non-PII posted to the Service or otherwise conveyed by you to RustyBrick into any further work, in any medium now or hereafter known, without prior consent or review, and without attribution or payment of any royalty or fee whatsoever. Other than for the limited rights granted above to us in your Submitted Content, you shall retain all rights, including without limitation ownership rights, in and to all Submitted Content.
6. Intellectual Property.
6.1 Proprietary Rights. The Service contains various Content which is protected by the copyright, trademark and other laws of the United States and/or other jurisdictions. Other than for the express rights granted in this Agreement, as between you and RustyBrick, all right, title and interest (including without limitation all copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret and other intellectual property rights) in and to (a) the Service (including without limitation all Content other than Submitted Content appearing therein) belongs to RustyBrick, and you have no rights in and to the Service other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement, and (b) the Submitted Content belongs to Subscriber, and RustyBrick has no rights in and to the Submitted Content other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement. All third party Trademarks and/or other third party intellectual property appearing on the Service belong to their respective third party owners. Except for Submitted Content or that information which is in the public domain or for which you have been given express written permission by RustyBrick, no Content may be sold, leased, copied, reproduced, republished, uploaded, displayed, posted, transmitted, distributed, modified, publicly performed, used in any derivative works based thereon or otherwise used for any public or commercial purpose without the prior written consent of RustyBrick. However, you may print copies of materials on the Service for your personal, noncommercial use only, provided that you must keep intact all copyright, trademark, and other proprietary notices appearing therein and that you use such materials solely in the manner permitted by this Agreement, and not in any manner which competes with RustyBrick.
6.2 Copyright Agent. 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 that your work has been copied and posted to the Service in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide our copyright agent with the following information: (a) an electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest; (b) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; (c) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Service; (d) your address, telephone number, and e-mail address; (e) a written statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on such owner's behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon RustyBrick actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. RustyBrick's copyright agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as follows:
Name: RustyBrick, Inc. Copyright Agent
Address: 250 West Nyack Road, Suite 200, West Nyack, NY 10994Telephone: (845) 369-6869
We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice with RustyBrick’s copyright agent. You should note that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA. RustyBrick will, in appropriate circumstances and to the extent plausible, terminate the right of you or a Subscriber who infringes the rights of copyright holders to interact with certain portions of the Service.

RustyBrick is not affiliated with, or sponsored or endorsed by, any third party trademark owner whose Trademark appears through the Service, and RustyBrick does not sponsor or endorse any third party Trademark or its owner. As used herein, the term “Trademarks” means, collectively, all trademarks, service names, graphics, designs, logos, page headers, button icons, scripts, commercial markings, and trade dress appearing on the Service which indicate a source of goods or services. Trademarks are protected by the trademark laws of the United States and/or other applicable jurisdictions. You may not use, copy, reproduce, republish, distribute or modify any Trademarks in any way, including without limitation by using Content as permitted by this Agreement, without our prior written consent or the consent of such third party Trademark holder, as applicable.
