RE: [nbos] [Inspiration Pad] Copyright Questions

When / If this becomes necessary, I will quit contributing any such
material to the effected forum / list / etc. I roleplay (and contribute
to the roleplaying community) for the enjoyment and the stress relief
that it provides. When this sort of stress is necessary to contribute,
it is not worth it.

Keep in mind that a copyright is a protection of the "expression" of an
idea, not of the idea itself. (and no I don't care to argue that point
with lawyers and self-styled lawyers)
