| required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action
| is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with
| legal process served on Microsoft or the site; (b) protect and defend
| the rights or property of Microsoft, including its MSN and Windows
| Live family of Web sites; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to
