"Confidential Information" shall only include information that is:

(a)  provided in writing or other tangible form and marked with a "Confidential" or "Proprietary" legend; or

"Confidential Information" shall in no event include that which:

(a)  is or was known to a party prior to receipt hereunder;

(b)  at the time of disclosure to either party by the other party was generally available to the public, or which after disclosure hereunder becomes generally available to the public through no fault attributable to either party;

(g) constitutes any suggested modifications or improvements to the Service.

5.2 The Services contain proprietary Information that is protected by copyright and other laws respecting proprietary rights.  The Services also may contain protected licensed proprietary material of third party licensors.  Owner and its licensors retain all rights in the Information, including (without limitation) all copyright and other proprietary rights worldwide in all media.  Subscriber shall advise its users of this Agreement's restrictions and requirements, and shall reasonably supervise its users to ensure compliance with this Agreement.

5.3 The Services and Information are highly proprietary in nature and any unauthorized copying, transfer or use may cause Owner or its licensors irreparable injury that cannot be adequately compensated for by means of monetary damages.  Subscriber agrees that Owner may enforce any breach of this Agreement by Subscriber by means of equitable relief (including, but not limited to, injunctive relief) in addition to any other available rights and remedies.
