I.
The Freecycle Network (“TFN”) is a nonprofit Arizonacorporation “dedicated to encouraging and coordinating thereusing, recycling, and gifting of goods.” Through its website,http://www.freecycle.org, TFN coordinates the efforts of over3,700 Freecycle groups worldwide. Via the local groups’webpages, individuals can post goods they no longer want. If another member wants the item offered, an exchange isarranged between the parties and the item thus avoids thelandfill.

Although Oey’s wife remains a party to this case, the facts and legalquestions revolve solely around Oey and, accordingly, this opinion refersonly to him.
