    Here's a little legalese that everyone should read and, at the least, be aware of when developing artwork. It pertains to the Copyright Act of 1976 and, as designers and producers of graphic works and intellectual property, you should have a familiarity with copyright. Here's the gov. website.
    http://www.copyright.gov/
    Very interesting reading.

    I'm just saying everyone should be aware of their rights when creating and selling their creative properties. Especially, today, when we are creating electronically, it becomes even more important. I bring this up as an aside I had with a lawyer today and we were reviewing copyright law and copyright infringement. So, I thought it important enough to let others know. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say.

    Especially important for creators of web sites.....!!!!

    That's not violation of copyright; that's libel and slander, plain and simple. Topcatz, you should be ashamed!!! We all know who Ronald McDonald is.....:image28:

    I enjoyed the satire as well and, apparently, you misunderstood. Your point was well-taken and it did deserve a chuckle or two. Note the reference to "Ronald McDonald". Sorry if you thought I was being serious... which I was not.:image24:
