    Have fun with your arms.
    I have done the registered mail method. Several mail packs have been hibernating in the filing cabinet, for years. I've had some work published, & wanted to protect myself. Once, the registered mail method needed to be used. I was able to get some pirated images taken off a web store site.

    If this be the case (and I believe it is correct) I suddenly feel a swell of importance that we XMark members have the same authority as the Postal service in clarifying copyrights. If I had a ship, I'd officiate a wedding at sea. I'll try not to let the power go to my head.

    Perhaps, Imbrius, should openly state that the image he posted IS his personal crest/logo/design. The official ‘This is It’.
