14. EXPLICIT CONTENT
Certain albums may be subject to the Recording Industry Association of America (“RIAA”) “Parental Advisory Label” (as defined at www.riaa.com/issues/parents/advisory.asp) or to the British Phonographic Industry (“BPI”) “Voluntary Stickering Scheme” for labelling recordings that contain explicit or offensive lyrics or other content. The RIAA assigns the Parental Advisory Label to an entire album and not the individual songs on the album. BPI recommends that its member companies apply a warning sticker to any recordings which they release or distribute which contain explicit lyrics or other content which may offend. This is a subjective decision that should be made by a senior executive of the company. All Tracks from such labelled albums (whether by RIAA or BPI) will be labelled as “explicit” within the Service (“Stickered Tracks”). If any of your searches on the Service return Stickered Tracks, they will be identified as such in the search results area. Note that Tracks that were recorded prior to 1985 are not subject to the RIAA Parental Advisory Label. Also, the BPI Voluntary Stickering Scheme may not apply to all content released in the United Kingdom since it is a voluntary process. Subexotic Records shall have no liability or responsibility to you for any content or materials, including Stickered Tracks, that may be available in connection with the Service that you might find objectionable.
15. INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
