You can not assume that.

Sadly the Internet newsgroups are not what they were even 10 years ago
and these days professionals are tending to steer clear of them.

Please don't - not for a single second - believe that I care remotely
what you think. Like so many newsgroup trolls, you are a parasite who
contributes nothing here. I pity you.

My concern is that the original poster has received some atrocious
advice that was pure bullshit and needed to be corrected. I was happy
to make a quick call to an expert in the field of IP law and post his
advice here, free of charge. You did nothing except criticise from a
position of ignorance. I pity you.

I merely pointed out that your "so called" lawyer's advice is not
credible unless you can subsatitiate the source of the advice. You
cannot . So, by definition, you are also subject to the same criticism
you originally dished on the OP. Thus making yourself look rather
silly.

Excellent article! I've now discarded any thought of a personal blimp-
three engines and a compressor or two! 80 feet long, rather more than a
garage-full!

No personal interest in radio controlled anything, but ultralights are
drawing me along.....

Yes, but you're already out on L.I., right?

It's the part that begins at the Bronx Whitestone that bothers me.
