[amsat-bb] Mode K (fact and fiction?)

MOST companies will just let you use their stuff (with permission and
reference) but some will require some "fee."  If it's a ham asking a ham I
don't see how there could be a problem especially if you aren't going to
make money from it.

If you've been a ham long enough you've probably either had your own cards
printed by or received cards printed by "The Little Print Shop" in
Pflugerville, TX.  They went out of business and were bought out by another
company about 15 years ago, I think the founder passed away and the
children/grand children didn't want to continue the QSL business but they
"expanded" into other venues.  My current QSL is based on one of their old
designs.  I called and got permission to use it and the grandson of the
founder (owner of the current company) was more than happy to give
permission.

In some cases it's easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission
but when it comes to copyrights that's usually not the case, it can cost you
dearly.

I forgot about that Copyright thing.  I've sent s message to RSGB Hq
requesting permission. I also offered to convert it to Kindle or other eBook
formats should they refuse copy permission.  I'll let the group know when I
find out.
