Intellectual Property issues

Some of the data you can access has certain Intellectual Property (IP) restrictions. The most prominent example is data that is governed by the Gnu Free Documentation License, such as data from Wikipedia. In a nutshell, the license states that when you make additions to the data, you need to make them publicly available, if you're sharing the data with people outside your organization. You will see a notification about this when you perform certain operations on the data. Don't believe our explanation. Go and read the license description if you think this applies to you.

Separately, we'll respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. For more information or to file a DMCA request, please read our copyright procedures.
