219:32:39 cheryloakes -> I agree, roll it into other things, and post little blurbs in newsletters or daily announcements.

219:34:42 sharonp -> are copyright laws different in Canada? Where can we find info about that? Do you know Dave?
219:34:47 JohnSchinker -> That's part of the problem, Sharon. Many people go to the extreme of not using anything because it might be considered by someone to be a violation.

219:35:01 Lee Baber -> its working great for intros
