Copyrights: Unless otherwise indicated, all of the ASCII HTML files and binary GIF files available on the host directories that service the URLs accessed in the domains "wiz-worx.com" and "sixes.org" are copyrighted by Dennette A. Harrod, Jr A copyright © is not the same as a trademark, although both imply the ownership of "intellectual property".
You copyright a digital text or image file the same way you do a story, novel, photograph, motion picture, screenplay, etc. - you send an application and a check to Washington, DC, and you become the Official Owner of Record with sole rights as to who can make copies of your work and under what conditions. In other words, you have to pay me if you expect to make money from something I created.
I, Dennette A. Harrod, Jr, do hereby give the reader permission to copy these files (for which I own the copyright) for private viewing only. That means you may not put said copy on another media and charge money for access to it, e.g.., you may not put them on a CD-ROM that you intend to sell for prifit (or on a pay-per-visit BBS or Internet Access Server) without my permission, and that's going to cost Hard Currency (no Promisory Notes accepted - I want gold in bullion form.)
Public Domain: Those words mean "nobody owns it, you
can make copies and put then in or on things that you sell, and
you don't have to pay anyone a royalty for using it." I have
provided easy-copy hooks to many public domain bitmap files on
I, Dennette A. Harrod, Jr, do hereby donate the icon file inonudes.gif to the public domain, but I retain ownership of the copyrights to the bitmap file nonudes.gif (after all, I took the original picture and still have the color negative in a Safe Place) and the HTML file "nonudes.htm". In other words, you may copy the icon file to achor the URL for your own page that says why you do (or do not) have nudes or URLs to nudes on your Web page, but do not copy my GIF file to put on that pages use the URL
if you think it's Really Neat, but do not make a local copy of that file on your Web site!
Example: The formula for Aspirin is in the public domain; anyone with the materials and skill can make it and consume it without paying anyone else. "Bayer" is a registered trademark of a company that makes and sells aspirin; no one else can use that name, a similar logo, or even the shape and color of the containers (which must also be trademarked, like the Coca-Cola® bottle) without paying the owner for the right to do so.
Bottom line: To the best of my knowledge, the   "NOTscape-Certified" logo was created by an individual who made it freely available to the world, i.e., it is in the public domain. However, the string of characters in HTML format that causes the words "NØTscape Certified" to appear on a computer screen ("NØTscape Certified™"), and to pronounce it "noughtscape" (as the digit "zero" is pronounced in Great Britain), was my very own idea, and I'm not going to let anyone else use it on their commercial products unless I get a piece of the action.
In other words, you can use the bitmapped graphic image contained in the binary file "notscape.gif" as freely as all of us can, but I have got a lock on the words "N0Tscape Certified(tm)", where the letter "oh" has been replaced by "the digit zero with a slash through it" (which is different in both shape and intent from the international symbol for "DO NOT ..." that is used in the "Notscape-Certified" logo), and the "trademark" symbol is included as part of the trademarked phrase.
Once more for the intellectually challenged - the "Notscape" logo is public domain, but I have asserted ownership of the rights to the phrase, "noughtscape certified is a trademark", and only I can use that phrase on my products and advertising.
