Re: Calcs on the web! Any worries?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bill,

What exactly are you worried about?  I would go ahead and do it, and keep
the name on the calcs and drawings with the disclaimer.  Is there some
reason why an entire package has to be posted on the web, or can it be just
an example set?  Does the set have to be download capable?  If the info is
in an un-modifiable form and there is a big disclaimer right up front, why
worry.

I would not post a stamped set on the web, but otherwise it is harmless
advertising.  I do not see the risk factor if the presentation is in the
right form (not "here use this package to build your very own...).
