Yes, there are legal issues involved. You really need legal advice and
assistance in this area. Your company should have access to legal talent who at
worst should be able to get you an answer to specific questions and point you
in the right direction.

This is one of those areas where 35 reasoned TECHWR-L opinions and/or
experiences do not equal one qualified legal opinion. Hie thee to a lawyer. <g>
