And are you advertising according to their established marketing strategy? Or, are you associating them with something they may not want to be part of? That is why they copyright stuff. To protect their brand and its image. So that nobody could legally stick (for example) the McDonald's logo to the side of some junker and go "advertise" for them. Does CarForums really want to be associated with the Eclipse in your signiture? Perhaps. Perhaps not.

Sure there are other ways around it. Heck, back in the cassette days you could copy easily. Could the big companies come after you? Sure could. Would they? Probably not. It would cost them too much and they wouldn't get much out of you. Today it is much easier to share files. That is why the music industry went after Napster AND some of the average Joes who used it. They needed to make an example out of somebody and take away the easy method for file sharing. Now, if you want the free music, you have to go more out of your way to get it.

I honestly think you are missing the point here. Nobody really cares right now about all this pointless babble. If you want to cry about copyright laws, make a new thread and post this conversation in there. This however is not the place to do it, so stop.

I am glad you can use the internet, but honestly I just don't give a damn. So quit looking for a pat on the back, cause I think all you are gonna get in this forum is a door hitting you in the ass. Oh and please feel free to respond to this and further take this topic off-track, just remmeber to post a sig with it Thank you

Ok, I was advised to attempt a clean up of this thread, but instead, I'm just gonna ask you all nicely to shut the **** up about Copy Write theft. It may be relevent in certain situations, but not really in here.....so the next person to quote a post about CW or to take this thread OT, will have their post deleted

Pat on the back huh? Is that why I'm here? Gee and here I thought it was to inform those who perhaps didn't know any better. Please, I don't need your approval or praise.

And how is this going to happen?

The only way it will happen is like this........

(you stated my car needed to be in there so......)


Are you happy "censorship" Cliffy? Like my new sig picture? Perhaps it's too big. I'll see if I can shrink it up with some exercise.

Are we limited to just car sigs or can we create something else also? Heres another STI sig. I need a different car idea.

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

I'm guessing you can tell the car. Perhaps not, it is the yellow thing in the lower left corner. Can you find the door? It is the brown thing right above my screen name. It may be hard to recognize because it is sideways.

Well, since you're the one who said.......

There are in fact several "artists" in the world who simply take images from other people, blend them together and do other things, and then proceed that what they have done is their own, not those who origionally took the pictures/ painted the paintings. There have been several lawsuits on this topic.
