Copyright

All content on this web site is the copyright of SB except the third party content and link to third party web site on our website.

SB is not an expert in your intellectual property rights, and we cannot verify that the users of our online marketplace - who post literally tens of thousands of trade leads for items on the website each day - have the right to sell the goods offered. We will appreciate your assistance in identifying listings which may not appear on their face to infringe your rights but which you believe are infringing. SB is also not an arbiter or judge of disputes about intellectual property rights. By taking down a listing, as a prudential matter, SB is not endorsing a claim of infringement. Neither, in those instances in which SB declines to take down a listing, is SB determining that the listing is not infringing, nor is SB endorsing the sale of goods in such cases.

SB respects the intellectual property rights of others, and we expect our user(s) to do the same. We believes that user(s) agree that they will not copy, download & reproduce any information, text, images, video clips, directories, files, databases or listings available on or through the web site (the "SB content") for the purpose of re-selling or re-distributing, mass mailing (via email, wireless text messages, physical mail or otherwise), operating a business competing with SB, or otherwise commercially exploiting the SB content. Systematic retrieval of SB content to create or compile, directly or indirectly, a collection, compilation, database or directory (whether through robots, spiders, automatic devices or manual processes) without written permission from SB is prohibited.

In addition, use of the content for any purpose not expressly permitted in this Agreement is prohibited and may invite legal action. As a condition of your access to and use of SB's services, you agree that you will not use the web site service to infringe the intellectual property rights of others in any way. SB reserves the right to terminate the account of a user(s) upon any infringement of the rights of others in conjunction with use of the SB service, or if SB believes that user(s) conduct is harmful to the interests of SB, its affiliates, or other users, or for any other reason in SB's sole discretion, with or without cause.
