Whether or not we should have a disclaimer was a question I recently discussed with Mike and he agreed it might be a good idea to have one. I am far from being an expert in internet or copyright law so my thinking goes something along these lines: there are quite a number of individuals (lawyers) out there who make a living by squeezing money out of people who have - through sheer ignorance - violated one of the zillion legal rules that exist in some dusty juridical tomes. They use, amongst other things, the legal tool of a "written warning" (Ger: Abmahnung) to bleed others. I had tried to incorporate some defense against this but have recently been warned by another member of the forum that this might not be sufficient. I therefore try to improve on it since I feel responsible for this job of being one of those who run #84. To have or have not such a disclaimer may, from what little I know, well make the difference of winning or loosing a legal battle, of walking away with a smile or with your pockets emptied. My attempt is probably very dilettantish - and might even make things worse - so anyone who could improve the text is invited to contact me or the forum administrators or post to this thread. Even if this text is not well suited I see it as a start and hope to get enough support from the forum so that some day we can feel a bit safer when we see the vultures circling above us....;-)

Thanks,

Juergen
