  1. Copyright and Trademark Policy.

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 the U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by MATER SIGNA infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to MATER SIGNA a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon MATER SIGNA actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to MATER SIGNA a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details.

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.

The trademarks, service marks and logos (the “Trademarks”) used and displayed on this Site are registered and unregistered to MATER SIGNA and others. Nothing on this Site should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license or right to use any Trademark displayed on the Site, without the prior written permission of the Trademark owner. MATER SIGNA aggressively enforces its intellectual property rights to the fullest extent of the law. The name of MATER SIGNA, Jimmy Ballard, any logos or the other MATER SIGNA formatives may not be used in any way, including in advertising or publicity pertaining to distribution of materials on this Site, without prior, written permission from MATER SIGNA.

  1. Title; Intellectual Property. Except for the rights expressly granted in this Agreement: (a) this Agreement does not transfer from MATER SIGNA to You any right, title or interest in or to any intellectual property owned by MATER SIGNA or any Third Party, and all right, title and interest in such intellectual property will remain solely with MATER SIGNA or such third parties, as applicable; and (b) no license, right or interest in any MATER SIGNA trademark, copyright, trade name or service mark is granted herein. Further, You agree that you will not, directly or indirectly copy, modify, translate, transmit, distribute, adapt, reproduce, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to derive source code or other trade secrets from the Sites.
