XVII. Positioning
A.It is the responsibility of all players to avoid contact in every way possible.

B. Every player is entitled to occupy any position on the field not occupied by an opposing player, unless specifically over-ridden elsewhere, provided that no personal contact is caused in taking such a position.

C. A player who jumped is entitled to land at the same spot without indrance by opponents. That player may also land at another spot provided the landing spot was not already occupied at the time of take-off and that the direct path between the take-off and landing spot was not already occupied.

XIX.Etiquette
A.If a foul is committed and not called, the player who committed the foul should inform the infracted player of the foul.

B. It is the responsibility of all players to avoid any delay when starting, restarting, or continuing play.

C. Should a dispute or confusion arise on the field, it should be common practice to stop play. Play restarts with a check when the matter is resolved.

D.If a novice player commits an infraction out of sincere ignorance of rules, it is common practice to stop play and explain the infraction.

"In Ultimate, an intentional foul would be considered cheating and a gross offense against the spirit of sportsmanship. Often a player is in a position where it is clearly to his/her advantage to foul or commit some violation, but that player is morally bound to abide by the rules. The integrity of Ultimate depends on each player's responsibility to uphold spirit of the game, and this responsibility should not be taken lightly."

Excellent point, and one of my favorite rules. I would like to point out that "some violation" includes double-teams. According to this, if you are knowingly committing a double-team, you are still cheating, whether it is called or not. Not that any of us would do this.
