Hello,

Wasn't too sure where to post this, so I'll try here.

I often receive interesting videos, powerpoint presentations, and emails full of pictures that are forwarded to me from my collection of friends and family. None of these contain any claim to copyright and are proliferated all over the internet community with impunity.

I was wondering if it would be alright to make these items available for download on one of my web sites? I'm not sure where to research this question, so I'd appreciate the help of anyone "in the know".

Thanks, Ray Parrish

I don't see why it would be a problem. The worst that can happen is that you get a letter or email from someone asking you to remove copyrighted material.

That makes sense... Thanks for the quick answer!

Later, Ray Parrish :thumbsup:
