[muglo] Re: Web Site Copy

I would definitely get permission from the originator before copying, 
Paul.  My understanding is that material on a website is "published", 
therefore, if you use it elsewhere, you likely need to get permission 
to use it.  You would possibly be OK if you referenced from the 
original, but if I were you, I would get permission beforehand.

You could check on the Canadian Intellectual Copyright Office 
website.  I don't have their website address, but I'm sure if you did 
a Google search, you would find it.

Pls note that Canadian copyright law is different from American 
copyright law in many instances.
