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.

Notes
-----
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.
 --VERIFIER NOTES-- 
This is not an erratum: the document says what it was intended to say at the time it was written.
