I write the above and realize that my inspection guide (see link in signature) might just be a test case.
Of course, when I hosted it on Dunkle's RL's member webs, I didn't read the TOS. Its cover reserves copyright except for personal use. So, while I may not have violated Dunkle's TOS in 2009, it would be in violation of IB's RL's TOS now. Technically. Since it is copyrighted material.
Now that I've "removed" it from RL, RL might claim that I've destroyed some small portion of their IP.
However, in violation of their TOS, I never assigned them copyright. So, is it their IP?
And, it's not actually removed from RL. I just removed the URL from my signature. They are free to put the URL in a footer or header on every 928 forum page.
That would be cool. Then I could send them a nasty short letter.
I can't recall reading El Jefe's TOS. So, maybe I'm in violation here too.
