Ok, before you point this out to me David, I just re-RTFM (list
guidelines).  

So, according to US Copyright law, then you own the copyright on everything
posted here, and Branston should be asking you?

Can I forward messages to friends and associates (yes, and clients) without
violating this?  What about my little user group newsletter? (circulation
varies from approx. 150 to 500).
