The Content is protected, without limitation, pursuant to United States and foreign copyright, trademark and other applicable laws and treaties. Unauthorized use of the Content may violate such laws and treaties.
You understand, acknowledge, and agree that the Site hereby grants you, subject to your compliance with all the other terms and limitations in this Agreement, a limited personal, non-exclusive, noncommercial, non-assignable and non-transferable license that authorizes you to use and display the Content, provided that you retain all copyright, trademark and other proprietary notices contained in the original Content on any copy you may make of the Content. You further agree that you will not, in whole or in part, sell, lease, rent, exchange, reproduce, archive, modify, compile, create derivative works from, publish by hard copy or electronic means, publicly perform, display, disseminate, distribute, broadcast, retransmit, link or circulate to any third party or on any third party website, or otherwise use the Content in any way for any public or commercial purpose without the express written approval of Owner/Operator.
Accessing, viewing, or downloading the Contents may not be lawful by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Site from outside of the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction. You also understand, acknowledge and agree that downloading of any object code or software by website users in restricted countries is prohibited.

Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, the use of or link to the Content on any other website or in a networked computer environment for any purpose is strictly prohibited.
Authorized Project Partners are the only users that are granted extensive promotional access to, use of, and performance or display of, the Content on this Site through their own websites and programming efforts under this Agreement. The license rights granted in this Section 4 to authorized Project Partners are in addition to the general user license granted above in Section 3.

WXPN blogs are classified as Non-music Content even if a blog contains or features Artist Works and/or Appearances. Each form of Content has different terms and limitations for use by Project Partners, as described in this Section 4.
Artist Works and/or Appearances are licensed to WXPN, its licensees and affiliates, this Site, and Project Partners under the following terms and limitations:
Non-Music Content is licensed to WXPN, its affiliates and licensees, and Project Partners under the following terms and limitations:
