WE ARE NOT INVOLVED IN USER-TO-USER DEALINGS NOR DO WE CONTROL THE BEHAVIOR OF USERS OF THE SERVICES. THEREFORE, IN THE EVENT THAT YOU HAVE A DISPUTE WITH ONE OR MORE USERS, YOU RELEASE YOUSICPLAY (AND OUR AGENTS AND EMPLOYEES) FROM CLAIMS, DEMANDS AND DAMAGES OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES.
11. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS.
1. YousicPlay’s Intellectual Property. The Services and the YousicPlay Content (including the YousicPlay Library) are the sole property of YousicPlay and/or its affiliates or its licensors and is protected by U.S. copyright and international treaties. YousicPlay reserves for itself and its licensors all right, title and interest in and to the Services, including all intellectual property rights therein. “YousicPlay ” and the YousicPlay design logo are registered service or trademarks of YousicPlay. All related products and service names, design marks and slogans are also the service marks or trademarks of YousicPlay.

13. DISPUTE RESOLUTION.
2. Exceptions. As limited exceptions to Section 13.A(1) above: (i) we both may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court if it qualifies; and (ii) we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property rights.
Any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) where you live, unless we both agree to a different location. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement.
4. Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules, and we won’t seek to recover the administration and arbitrator fees we are responsible for paying, unless the arbitrator finds your Dispute frivolous. If we prevail in arbitration we’ll pay all of our attorneys’ fees and costs and won’t seek to recover them from you. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law.
5. Injunctive and Declaratory Relief. Except as provided in Section 13.A(2) above, the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by either party and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. To the extent that you or we prevail on a claim and seek public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The parties agree that litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.
6. Class Action Waiver. YOU AND YOUSICPLAY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if the parties’ dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 13.A “Dispute Resolution; Individuals” shall be null and void.
B. Legal Entities. If you are a company or other legal entity, the provisions of this Section 13.B apply to you with respect to any Disputes:
The exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes will be the state and federal courts located in the county of San Francisco, California, and you and YousicPlay each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
14. GENERAL TERMS.
