lmao it doesnt matter if is US laws from what i could track down the snakes.com is located in the states:
Address: 2600 Southwest Frwy., Suite 500
so US copyrightlaws are king. Which really sucks cause if you piss someone off due to a copyright violation they can just go to who ever is hosting the server and have them shut it down. Although thats only been an issue where movies and music are involved. Then tend to be more fanatical in thier copyright protection from my experience. If its "stolen" text you usually get a letter asking for its removal.
