UPSCALE WIKI MAKES NO GUARANTEE OF VALIDITY

Upscale Wiki, located at https://upscale.wiki/, is an online open-content collaborative database; that is, a voluntary association of individuals and groups working to develop a common resource of AI-driven image upscaling and manipulation technology knowledge. The structure of this project, which is a wiki, allows anyone with an Internet connection to alter its content. Please be advised that nothing found here has necessarily been reviewed by people with the expertise required to provide you with complete, accurate or reliable information.

That is not to say that you will not find valuable and accurate information in Upscale Wiki; much of the time you will. However, Upscale Wiki cannot guarantee the validity of the information found here. The content of any given article may recently have been changed, vandalized or altered by someone whose opinion does not correspond with the state of knowledge in the relevant fields. Note that most other encyclopedias and reference works also have disclaimers.

Even articles that have been vetted by informal peer or moderator review processes may later have been edited inappropriately, just before you view them.

Upscale Wiki may contain articles providing some kind of legal information; however, no warranty whatsoever is made that any of this information is accurate. There is absolutely no assurance that any statement contained in an article touching on legal matters is true, correct or precise. Law varies from place to place and it evolves over time—sometimes quite quickly.

The legal information that may be provided on Upscale Wiki is, at best, of a general nature and cannot substitute for the advice of a licensed professional, i.e., by a competent authority with specialised knowledge who can apply it to the particular circumstances of your case. Please contact a local bar association, law society or similar association of jurists in your legal jurisdiction to obtain a referral to a competent legal professional if you do not have other means of contacting an attorney-at-law, lawyer, civil law notary, barrister or solicitor.
