Copyright material needs removing

Answers

  • I'm not a moderator in the vbgeneral forum, but I am a moderator, and I'm not really understanding what the beef is here.

    Just because a code segment has a copyright header on it does not preclude it's ability to be posted in a forum for discussion .. in fact, doing so is expressly permitted under the provisions of Fair Use in the U.S. Copyright Law.

    Furthermore, this is a *Microsoft* forum, and the post in question was actually made by an named "community contributor". The content of the post is freely available from any Windows system (as was noted in the post), and the purpose of the post was to demonstrate how to find the location of the wallpaper image files of interest. The file in question can be found in %appdata%\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes.

  • I would suggest emailing "fissues" at microsoft dot com, and ask them to remove the material. Otherwise, if you can contact a moderator in the forum, they probably can help.

    I completely agree with this, and my guess is that the forums team does as well, since the post is still there.

    Don't retire TechNet! - (Maybe there's still a chance for hope, over 12,225+ strong and growing)
