Re: [z_scale] I would ... like, too ...
- Hi all:
Interesting news: eGroups has been bought by Yahoo.
What's interesting about the change is Yahoo's position on ownership of
Intellectual Property and Copyrights. Their TOS section 8 sounds pretty
airtight, and they have a history of enforcing their position.
So, if you plan to publish something in a magazine/book, take note.
