Just curious what all of you had to go through as far as getting permissions
for using screen shots, etc.. in your manuals. Since much of mine had to do
with MS Windows and other MS programs I had to do a lot of research and
found that as long as you are using the manual and screen shots for training
purposes, Microsoft's legal department didn't require any lengthy forms and
stuff in order to use their name/screen shots. All they required was a
disclaimer in the front and something saying "screen shots used by
permission of Microsoft". The other programs I wrote about (adobe acrobat,
Callwave, Net Nanny, Yahoo e-mail, etc...) were a little different. I
actually had to fill out forms and send copy to get permission from them.
