Upon your acceptance of these Terms of Use, the MPAA grants you a limited, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive, revocable license to access, use, copy, download and print the Content for your personal and non-commercial informational use only, provided you do not modify or delete any copyright, trademark or other proprietary notice that appears on the Content.

You agree to abide by all additional restrictions displayed on the Sites as they may be updated from time to time. The MPAA may revoke this limited license at any time for any or no reason. All rights not expressly granted are reserved by the MPAA and its licensors. You will not: (i) use any hardware or software intended to damage or interfere with the proper working of the Sites; (ii) surreptitiously intercept any system, data or personal information from the Sites; or (iii) interrupt or attempt to interrupt the operation of the Sites in any way.

These links are provided as a convenience to you and as an additional avenue of access to the information contained therein. The inclusion of links to Third Party Sites is not, and should not be viewed, as an endorsement by the MPAA of the Third Party Sites or any content therein.
