If a dispute arises between you and us, you agree to provide us with notice of the dispute via email to [email protected]. Upon our receipt of the notice, the parties will have a period of sixty (60) days to attempt to resolve the dispute informally before either may resort to the other alternatives described in this Section 17. 

With the exception of class actions (further discussed in Section 18), claims to enforce intellectual property rights (patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights), and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of Warner Services, any dispute of any kind between you and any of the Warner Bros. Entertainment Group  arising under these Terms of Use or in connection with your use of Warner Services (“Dispute”), if unresolved through informal discussions within sixty (60) days of receipt of notice, will be resolved by binding arbitration in the United States of America.

Both parties reserve the right to seek a preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order from a federal or state court in the United States.  However, after such request for relief has been heard by such court, the remainder of the Dispute will be resolved by binding arbitration as set forth herein.  We reserve the right to demand any remedy for violations of these Terms of Use and/or any other rules and regulations set forth on Warner Services, including without limitation the right to block access from a particular Internet protocol (IP) address.

Any arbitrator proceeding over a Dispute will be a retired judge or justice of any state or federal court with substantial experience in the subject matter relevant to the matter in dispute and will follow California law in adjudicating the dispute.  The parties agree that an arbitrator proceeding over a Dispute will be instructed, whenever practicable, to resolve threshold legal issues by way of motions filed by the parties.  The parties also agree that they will follow JAMS’ streamlined arbitration rules and procedures then in effect in arbitrating any Dispute, except to the extent that the JAMS rules are inconsistent with this section or the class action waiver described below.  The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com

The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve all Disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms of Use, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Use is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award will be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

If the claim you wish to assert against us is less than $10,000, then, at your election, (i) the arbitration may proceed in-person, by telephone, or by written briefs or (ii) you may in lieu of arbitration bring your claim in small claims court in the United States of America.  If either party files a claim in state or federal court that is required by these Terms of Use to have been brought to arbitration, then the other party will be entitled to his/her/its reasonable attorneys' fees incurred in successfully compelling arbitration.

To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of the filing fee for a lawsuit, Warner will pay the additional cost of the filing fee. 

18. Class Action Waiver. You and Warner agree that Disputes will be resolved on an individual basis, and that any claims brought under these Terms of Use or in connection with Warner Services must be brought in the parties' individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, or representative proceeding.  The parties further agree that they will not participate in any class action (existing or future) brought by any third party arising under this agreement or in connection with Warner Services.  If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then such class action is not subject to arbitration and must be litigated in state or federal court in Los Angeles County in the State of California.

19. Severability. If any provision of these Terms of Use will be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. This is the entire agreement between the parties relating to the matters contained herein.
