Despite its efforts, Fizzle Stock cannot and does not guarantee that any Materials offered for sale or license on the Website are no longer subject to copyright protection. Moreover, copyright laws vary by country and jurisdiction.
Fizzle Stock has diligently researched the copyright status of the Materials under U.S. Copyright Law. Because the Materials all appear to have been first published in the United States,
