  • Discuss illegal activity, such as how to get drugs and how to make bombs.
  • Ask for or offer sexually explicit images, and/or material harmful to children.
  • Harass, threaten, embarrass, or do anything else to another Skype user that is unwanted.
  • Infringe anyone else's intellectual property rights, including but not limited to any copyright, trademark, rights of publicity, or other proprietary rights.
