other intellectual property right laws in the United States or in other

intellectual property rights laws.

governed by, the laws in which the Registered User operates in or is
incorporated in, or the United States Federal law, as applicable,
excluding any such laws that might direct the application of the laws of
another jurisdiction, and venue shall lie exclusively in the federal and
state courts of the United States, excluding any such laws to the
contrary. The Registered User’s consent to the personal jurisdiction of
such courts over the Registered User and waive and agree not to

invalid, illegal, unenforceable, or in conflict with the law of any
jurisdiction, the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining

of other breaches of the Agreement.
