Yeah, s'pose it makes sense. After all, it only takes an e mail to check doesn't it? Right again Jane (My technical advisor!)

Nor me. But.

I gather the problem isn't hassle *we* might cause Issaries. As you say, we're not trying to make money out of this. The problem is that Issaries have to be seen to be protecting their copyrights, or under some weird American law or other, they lose them.

So, they have to set some rules for us lot. They don't have time or money to take us to court. I doubt if they have time to search our web-sites for violations. So if we want to be nice to Issaries, we either take down anything illegal without being asked, or we ask for a licence for it. And get it. The default answer is "yes, but", where the "but" is "sign here".
