Status: Rejected

Rejected by: Barry Leiba (IESG)

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 is not an erratum: the document says what it was intended to say at the time it was written.
