If we missed a company please e-mail Andrew@CrabLord.com and forgive us in the meantime, as this will be reviewed and edited many times to make sure we give due credit to those whom it belongs.
We hope you understand that we are not some online entity trying to steal from the media and harass the public, as we are only here to entertain, educate, and honestly give respect to those who inspired us to create this website itself. We wouldn’t be taking the time to write this hefty legal article if this was not very important to us.
