If the application includes the ability to circumvent music (and/or software)copyright laws, apart from your own skin, I'd be concerned that REBOL Technologies might be exposed to a nasty lawsuit. It's a crusade that RT probably doesn't want to get mixed up in right now. Which brings up the legal question in general. If I sell some script to a customer, and it crashes, or even worse, ends up formatting some HD somewhere. iRebol that MAY end up getting the phone calls. Having the word "Rebol" in the window title will aggravate this. Although it makes for good marketing for Rebol, I can see it could become confusing for clients. I can hear it now... Client: "Hey, this Rebol thing just e-mailed the company health records and human resources data to everyone!" Exec: "Call up the lawyers, find out who this Rebol guy is and nail him to the wall!" Rebol: "Good afternoon, Rebol Technologies, how may I direct your call?" TBrownell
