You always say you won’t place limits or conditions, but alas, we must. We do not condone the use of the following words:
Please stop using them.
This legal mumbo-jumbo is written lightly and included just to cover our butts, but the shortened translation below each section (dark blue) is there so you can understand what the heck Terms and Conditions are.
Read this, it’s the smart thing to do.

You shouldn’t take things that don’t belong to you. Borrowing can be ok if you ask. Someone tried once, he didn’t get hurt, but he sure felt foolish. Don’t make us humiliate you. Basically, if you like what you see and feel the need to use it, just ask us first.

You agree to abide by any and all future Nine policy decisions.
Don’t push our buttons.

If viruses occur, that’s not us- it’s probably the result of a bored hacker. But that probably won’t occur- we’re a Mac-based studio. We rock. If we’ve offended your eyes with naughty language or graphics, that’s not us either, that’s you.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

All claims, disputes or disagreements which may arise out of the interpretation, performance or in any way relating to your use of this site and any and all other Nine site(s), shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York and you agree to be subject exclusively to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in New York State. You agree that the state and federal courts of New York State are the exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute against Nine, its employees or the owners and operators of Nine’s web site(s), or network.
We’re not lawyers here, but we’ve got a good one. A real good one. Jurisdiction? We’ll just ask him if you’ve got some kind of claim.
