In this instance, a "Wish List" is a compendium of titles published by O'Reilly Media in any available format that you would like to own.

Limit one entry per person. All online entries must be received during the Promotion Period to be eligible for the Promotion drawing. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Should multiple users of the same e-mail account enter the Promotion and a dispute thereafter arises regarding the identity of the entrant, the authorized account holder of said e-mail account at the time of entry will be considered the entrant. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other online organization which is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. Automated entries are prohibited, and any use of automated devices will cause disqualification.

3. WINNERS SELECTION & NOTIFICATION: On or about February 23, 2011, one (1) winner will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received by the Promotion Period end date ("Selected Winner") for the prize outlined in Section 4 of these Rules ("Prize"). The drawing will be conducted by Sponsor, whose decisions will be final and binding on all matters relating to the Promotion. Selected Winner will be notified via email or telephone. Sponsor is not responsible for any incorrect e-mail address or telephone number or any change of e-mail address or telephone number. Selected Winner may be required to respond to Sponsor's notification within 72 hours of notification. The failure to respond timely to the notification may result in forfeiture of the Prize and, in such case, Sponsor may randomly select an alternate chosen entrant from among the remaining eligible entries. In no event will Sponsor reserve Prize for any Selected Winner that does not respond timely to the notification. Selected Winner may be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability/Publicity Release ("Release") which must be completed and returned to Sponsor in the manner specified by Sponsor at the time the Selected Winner is notified. Failure to respond with the required information within this time period as required pursuant to these Rules may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner.

4. PRIZE: One Prize will be awarded. Selected Winner will receive the O'Reilly titles listed on his or her Wish List. Total US Retail value of Prize: approximately $500 USD. Prize is non-transferable and may not be redeemed for cash. Prize may not be assigned or substituted, except that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize for an item of equal or greater value if the offered Prize is unavailable for any reason. All prizes are awarded "AS IS" and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTBILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE). ACCEPTANCE OR USE OF PRIZE IS AT SELECTED WINNER'S OWN RISK. All federal, state and local taxes are the sole responsibility of Selected Winner.

5. ODDS OF WINNING. The odds of winning depend upon the total number of eligible entries received.
