If you  had bothered to read my ENTIRE email, you would've seen that I made 
these same points regarding copyrights and recommended that the party go to 
both the Google and N2YO websites and make certain that was acceptable.

As it turns out, there are a number of widgets on the N2YO website that are 
available and as you state, it's highly likely that N2YO will set you up 
with exactly what you are looking for.  All you have to do is ask!

That is called "stealing" another's work.

SEND N2YO AN EMAIL - and ask him for what you would like. What is wrong with 
doing that?

I had sent him a small donation earlier this year. And he created a CUSTOM 
WIDGET for me - just
listing my favorite five satellites.

He is approachable. He answers polite email messages. He is a ham. He SHOULD 
be considered a
valuable resource/reference person for us ... and NOT someone whose code 
should be snagged and
edited to our whims.

UNLESS, of course, he plainly states that his works are free to the world, 
for us to edit however we
want with them. But last time I looked, that was not the case.
