This revocation specifically includes and is not limited to: any songs, tapes, records, compact discs, musical scores, transcripts, poetry, lyrics, satires, political commentary, or other proprietary or creative intellectual property generated by or on behalf of Bethancourt.
B. This withdrawal and revocation extends to use by or for the SCA, in any official record, document, magazine, newsletter, chronicle, or other publication of, by or for the SCA.
