[steering-discuss] screen-shots Documentation Team


Hi 
The documentation team has been told by various people (over the past several 
months)  that taking screen-shots in Windows could put us at risk.  Since those 
people appeared to have some level of legal awareness or in some cases read and 
quoted the Windows Eulas the team decided to make it part of the re-branding 
work to protect us from that sort of vulnerability.  


Now a single individual quotes from a children's fairy story saying "the sky is 
not falling, as Chicken Little imagined." and says that people have wasted time 
re-branding because MS never takes any organisations or people to court over 
patent infringements.  


Gary is also telling people to abandon the established work-flow and use his own 
personal websites to do the work instead of using the Alfresco websites and 
ODFauthors places that the Documentation Team established that protect works 
under copyleft licences that were also agreed within the team.  


He has carefully timed his advice to coincide with the person the team sees as 
leader going away on holiday.  


Can anyone point me to a list of MS court actions or specific parts of the 
Windows Eula that might put us at risk?  A quick google search on the Tom Tom 
case gave me
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_v._TomTom
Can anyone give me more relevant examples?  

The documentation team is very small and needs a lot of support right now.  
David is doing great work at developing the functionality of the Alfresco sites 
and i had hoped that we could just get on with doing the work while Jean was 
away rather than dealing with a power-grab and disruptive actions seemingly 
designed to drive morale through the floor.  


Regards from
Tom
