Re: Proprietary Templates?

This was a big conversation over the summer, as I recall. It seemed to go 2
ways and as I recall, no one seemed to really come out definitively.

I can tell you my point of view - if you are using the exact same files that
you also supplied to the other company as the templates for your stuff, it
may fall under intellectual property for the other client. Personally, I
would not do it. I think they own their template (they did pay for it) and
it would be stealing. May be legal, but I think highly unethical.

My thoughts.

Subject: Proprietary Templates?

| Happy New Year Fellow Framers,
| Question. Can "templates" be proprietary? For example, lets say that a
corporation has a Frame template that they've had designed for them. If you
remove any trademark or other overtly proprietary text and graphics, are
these templates then "fair game" for someone else to use?
