What is a DMCA Notice?
A DMCA notice informs a company, web host, search engine, or internet service provider that they are hosting or linking to material that infringes on a copyright.

What Is Freedom to Operate?
Freedom to operate, also known as FTO or right to use, means you have the freedom to test, market, or sell a product or service in a specific area. Sometimes intellectual property rights only count in a country or a region, and outside of them you have the FTO to do whatever you want.
For example, let's say the U.S. government gave you a patent for a new kind of speaker. As the patent holder, you have the freedom to market and sell your speaker while no one else can. If it's a brand-new kind of speaker, you can also sell it in other countries without getting their patents.

Why Is Pari Passu Important?
Pari passu is useful because it is a shorthand way of describing situations when equal, non-preferential treatment is part of a business deal. Shares of stock (and classes of stock) can be pari passu, investors in a company can be pari passu, and creditors who receive an insolvent company's assets

What Is Legal Entity?
A legal entity refers to a legally standing or lawful partnership. That partnership could be an association, a trust, a proprietorship, a corporation, or an individual. All such entities are legally able to be accountable for activities against the law, enter contracts or agreements, incur and pay back debts, be sued and sue other entities, and assume obligations. While legal entities are able to do many things, a legal entity cannot hold office or vote.
Legal entities are frequently seen in scenarios and instances where an individual can take a class-action lawsuit against a company or the manufacturer that supplies the products for a company. Another scenario where the term "legal entity" applies is when every member of a band signs a contract for a record. The band is the legal entity, which is why the band members can enter a contract.
