The disclaimer contains 2 links to article-space. One is "personality rights", which seems quite reasonable. The other is "United States of America". What is the purpose of linking such a broad topic here? I don't know if something like "WP:OVERLINK applies outside of article-space, but in any case, I fail to see how linking this redirect to "United States" does anything to help clarify the subject for the reader.

I can see no good reason at all for the link to United States of America, and in nearly seven months nobody has suggested that there is a good reason, so I have removed the link. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 15:23, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Just a minor grammatical fix (add necessary comma):
