Warning and disclaimer
Netiquette rules listed here are suggestions for helping people get along
better; they carry no force of law. Explanations of U.S. copyright law in
this chapter are a layperson's interpretation and are here for educational
purposes only. I am not a lawyer, and nothing in this chapter should be
construed as legal advice. Additionally, the interpretation of copyright
law changes all the time, so anything in print here may have changed by
the time you read it. If you need legal advice, talk to a lawyer!
