    Copyright Question

    I imagine one can't copyright the specifics of a martial arts technique or form, any more than one could copyright a dance move or figure skating routine. But I would think the names at least would be very copyrightable.

    Did Parker (and his estate) never pursue this?

    Just curious.

    Somebody help me, please.

    This whole "News Bot" thing. It's a computer generated program, or maybe a people generated thing, to encourage conversation between members of the forum? Is that it?

    Do any of you guys ever read posts from Bots? Give a hoot, or reply to them?

    Wondered that myself. You could auto fish for stuff, but you would still need the enter key to input. Well it has been a while since I was a Moderator. You never know, could be a buddy of Billc lol.

    These News bots are coming in from the sister sites of KenpoTalk and FMATalk into their appropriate sections to engage a larger audience. I think they used to have some others forums as well, but I don't see them anymore. I use those sites anyway, so it isn't much of an advantage for me, but there are guys who use one or the other forums, that it may attract.
