Article 5: General Terms
  1. Governing Law and Jurisdiction. This Agreement shall be governed by California law, without reference to its rules regarding conflicts of law. Each party hereto hereby irrevocably submits and consents to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California and of the United States of America located in the County of Los Angeles for any action, suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement.
  2. Copyright Infringement Notification. Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512, as amended by Title II of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “Act”), SEI will terminate the account of any User who uses his or her account privileges to unlawfully transmit copyrighted material without a license, valid defense or fair use privilege to do so. After proper notification by the copyright holder or its agent to SEI and later confirmation through court order or an admission by the User that his or her account has been an instrument of unlawful infringement, SEI will terminate the infringing User’s account. SEI may also in its sole discretion decide to terminate a User's account privileges prior to that time if SEI has good faith belief that infringement has in fact occurred. In addition, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(c), SEI has implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed infringements and for processing such claims in accordance with the Act. SEI is dedicated to respecting and upholding the intellectual property rights of others, and we ask our Users to do the same. If you believe that your copyright has been infringed through the use of a PlayOnline account, please contact PlayOnline Information Center.
  3. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is determined by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be interpreted to the maximum extent to which it is valid and enforceable, all as determined by such court in such action, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will, nevertheless, continue in full force and effect without being impaired or invalidated in any way.
  4. No Waiver. No waiver by SEI of any term, provision or condition of this Agreement, whether by conduct or otherwise, in any one or more instances, shall be deemed to be or be construed as a further or continuing waiver of any such term, provision or condition or as a waiver of any other term, provision or condition of this Agreement.

This Agreement, together with the Member Agreement, User Agreements, the Privacy Policy, and any other terms of use relevant to your use of the Licensed Software, constitutes the entire understanding and agreement between the parties with respect to your use of the Licensed Software and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous oral or written communications with respect to the subject matter hereof, all of which are merged herein.
