I am posting this for a co-worker. Please e-mail your responses to
susanz -at- corel -dot- com
Let us now delve into the murky waters of copyrighting and trademarking
on a Web site. You'd really help me out by answering the questions
below; please reply to SUSANZ -at- COREL -dot- COM -dot- Our company is in the
middle of figuring out our policy, and I'd like to get insight from others who
are dealing with this.

1 How do you handle copyrights and trademarks on your Web site
and the materials there? Do you mark trademarked terms owned by your
company? How about other companies?

2 If you copyright and trademark, how do you handle the citations--a
blanket statement, a "credits" page, different ways depending on whether
it's your mark or another company's?

3 Who devised your strategy--writer/editor, Web master, legal
department, marketing department? What's your opinion of your
company's policy on this?

Thanks for your help. I'll let you know the results, if there are any
conclusive ones.
