Compliance with Law and ACME Novelties LLC/FakeNewspapers.com Guidelines. In connection with the exercise of Your rights and obligations under this Agreement (including, without limitation, any related to individual privacy), You will comply, at Your own expense, with all laws, policies, guidelines, regulations, ordinances, rules applicable to You, Your business or the Transactions and/or orders of any governmental authority or regulatory body having jurisdiction over the subject matter hereof.

- Intellectual Property.
ACME Novelties LLC/FakeNewspapers.com. The parties agree that ACME Novelties LLC/FakeNewspapers.com owns and retains all right, title and interest in and to the ACME Novelties LLC/FakeNewspapers.com Marks, ACME Novelties LLC/FakeNewspapers.com Services, graphic images, pictures, drawings, texts, programming code, phrases, and layouts and any related technology utilized under or in connection with this Agreement, including but not limited to all intellectual property rights associated therewith.

You will not reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or otherwise attempt to discover the source code or trade secrets for any of the ACME Novelties LLC/FakeNewspapers.com Services or related technology.
- Chargebacks: There is a growing number of customers in the US and abroad who have discovered that they can sometimes trick a business into refunding on a perfectly good product by filing a Chargeback with their credit card issuer. The most common trick is to claim the item wasn't received. Due to this growing problem, ACME Novelties LLC/FakeNewspapers.com collects a delivery signature on ALL deliveries since early 2008. Another trick often employed by dishonest customers is to claim they did not place the order at all. In those cases we are able to show IP address tracking and thwart this dishonest ploy as well. Unfortunately, even in those cases in which we win a fraudulent chargeback (and we do prosecute fraudulent chargebacks), the effort and time required to fight said chargeback is considerable and, win or lose, we are "fined" for the chargeback by our credit card processing company. Fraudulent transactions are filed as criminal complaints with law enforcement (usually the FBI) and ALL data we have collected from you and about you is forwarded as a part of that complaint.
- Use of Trademarks. Each party shall strictly comply with all standards with respect to the other party's Trademarks contained herein or which may be furnished by such party from time to time. Further, neither party shall create a combination mark consisting of one or more Trademarks of each party.

Either party may update or change the list of Trademarks usable by the other party hereunder at any time by written notice to the other party.
- Mutual Warranties. Each party represents and warrants to the other that (a) it has all necessary right, power and ability to execute this Agreement and to perform its obligations therein; (b) no authorization or approval from any third party is required in connection with such party's execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement, (c) this Agreement constitutes its legal, valid and binding obligation, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms, (d) the party's obligations under this Agreement do not violate any law or breach any other agreement to which such party is bound; and (e) it has all right, title or interest, or valid license to use, its respective Marks, and that its grant of rights associated therewith do not violate any intellectual property or other proprietary rights of any third party.
