The following errata report has been submitted for RFC7725,
"An HTTP Status Code to Report Legal Obstacles".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Editorial
Reported by: Robert Rothenberg <robrwo@gmail.com>

Section: 3

Original Text
This status code indicates that the server is denying access to the
resource as a consequence of a legal demand.

Corrected Text
This status code indicates that the server is denying access to the
resource as a consequence of a legal demand or contractual restrictions to content.

There are many cases where documents are not available in a part of the world because of contractual obligations, rather than legal ones.

For example, a television network may only have the rights to stream a video in a specific country. This is a legal requirement to comply with a contract. Visitors from other countries should receive an HTTP 451.

This erratum is currently posted as "Reported". If necessary, please
use "Reply All" to discuss whether it should be verified or
rejected. When a decision is reached, the verifying party  
can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
