Those are the rules. Please follow them carefully or you may get into serious consequences.
In the wiki, copyright is mostly important for the creativity of a HTN (Hexahedron Television Networks)-owned network (or a related company to Hexahedron), logo, or company. However, if the name of a network, design of a logo, or even a name of a company that have been already used in real-life (unless if it is licensed), you would get a copyright infringement notice from administrators and moderators, which could result from a 1 to 3 day ban, if the user has been noticed more than once, this would result from a 2 week ban to a 1 month ban.
All Wiki users, including Admins and wiki contributors, have the right to privacy. Any private content, Including other's personal stuff, should NOT be posted on the wiki. Wiki users also have the right to declare their stuff public if needed, wanted, or any other reason.
