RE: ETKA CD's
suggestions for what, exactly. selling them privately is
at the risk - and probably relatively minor risk - of the
buyers and seller. if it was me, i'd do it thru some kind
of hotmail address with forged information. i brought up
my points at the suggestion of getting monies from the
sales to the q-list, etc. selling audi's copyrighted
material to fund someting audi-related that even uses their
trademark name is bound to set off alarms. this is all
archived, by the way. the alarms could go off years
