act within the copyright laws of the Republic of Malta as well as any legislation of the European Community, or of the territory in which INTER-LAWYER originally published the material;


publish the material without any adjustment which would alter its meaning or bring INTER-LAWYER, its representatives, agents, clients, contributors or the subject of the material or any other person or entity into disrepute;


meet the requirements of current Human Rights legislation and Data Protection Law within Europe (which rights may extend to individuals and entities resident outside the European Economic Area);
