2. References and Links

With regards to direct or indirect references to external Internet sites ("links") which are themselves outside the field of responsibility of the author, liability for illegal content will only then be assumed if the author has knowledge of the content of those sites and it is technically feasible and reasonable for the author to prevent usage of said sites. The author hereby expressly declares that, at the time links were installed on this site, no illegal content was apparent on the targeted sites. The author has absolutely no influence on the current or future design, content or copyright of the linked pages. Consequently, the author expressly distances himself from all content on said linked pages which have been altered since installation of the original link.

All those brand names and trademarks cited in the author's Internet platform, some of which are, on occasion, protected by third parties, are subject without restriction to applicable copyright laws and the proprietary rights of the registered owners.

Copyrights for those objects published and created by the author himself, remain solely with the author. Duplication or use of such graphics, audio documents, video clips and texts in other electronic or print publications, is not permitted, except with the expressed permission of the author.
