We've mentioned previously that we have an international audience. Now EuroSeek™ has made it official. After only being listed with Euroseek™ since 10 April 1999, we have received more than 38,000 "hits," so that . . .
We confidently assert that our web site is most definitely and emphatically “a work of recognized stature” under Title 17 of the United States Code!
In June of 1999, Yahoo! Inc., one of the most aptly named companies in the world, took over GeoCities, where we had maintained a homestead for almost 2 1/2 years. In an effort to seize control of the “member-provided content” on GeoCities and "commercialize" it, Yahoo! Inc. imposed an outrageous “terms of service” adhesion contract on GeoCities members, with which we do not agree, and which we repudiate as immoral, illegal, and unenforcable in the State of California and the United States of America. Yahoo! Inc. is demanding that GeoCities members provide Yahoo! Inc. with the “world-wide, royalty-free right” to “publish,” “alter,” “modify,” and "share" “member-provided content” on GeoCities, thus attempting to circuvent United States Copyright and Trademark laws and the international Berne Convention. We will in no way co-operate with the illegal activities of Yahoo! Inc., have already begun proceedings against them, and have notified them that any interference with or damage to our web site content on GeoCities will result in charges being brought against them under Title 17 of the United States Code.
