      I would say the answer is no .... *grin*

      When you make a clip it is saved on your machine as a "utility" macro that
      can be used to do something. There is nothing embedded into your document
      per se. A person receiving the file doesn't get the clip because you used a
      clip to make it.

      This is different, for example, then Microsoft macro's which can be embedded
      in documents ... resulting in a hackers dream ... because when you open the
      file the macro can fire.

      Where you might get confused is that a clip can by typed out and if I give
      you the clip you can copy it to the clipboard and make it into a clip on
      your machine.

      I hope that helps.
