Licensing Violations - Air-Force.ca
« on: April 01, 2018, 06:39:06 »
Folks,

Last week I received word that there are crown copyrights on Army.ca and Navy.ca. Air-Force.ca is not affected due to the addition of the hyphen. Unfortunately starting in April we are legally unable to use the other sites and their proprietary colour schemes, so moving forward we will be stuck with the Air-Force style.

I apologize and will do all I can to fight this, but as the papers have been filed, for now we must comply.


Cheers
Mike

My MilPoints got sent before adding "  ;) "

I assure you that I find it difficult to take too much seriously on this.... the RCAF 'birthday.'   :nod:

Good news, the licensing dispute was resolved. Turns there was a minor loophole that would have allowed the Army and Navy to use the same hotel booking standards as the Air Force, and as DND does not have the budget to support that, the contract was terminated.

Back to the old green. And wow, I really need to do some work on that light blue colour scheme.

Whew, thank gawd for last minute negotiations. My eyes were starting to burn.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

It's an easy fix, just use the RCN colour scheme.  :whistle:
