Dear Ian,    (01)

While your unsolicited post may be of interest to some of the 
members of this community, I have a feeling that it may be in 
violation of how members of this community customarily handle 
non-open products. (If you tell me that your product is in fact 
an open-source or open-technology product, then I stand 
corrected. I am sure that you are aware that offering user 
license at no charge does not render your product "open.")    (02)

Kindly note our IPR Policy 
which essentially says:    (03)

    "those who are unable to contribute under an open content 
license, open publication license or one of the free software or 
open source licensing arrangements should refrain from 
contributing to the [ontolog-forum] content."    (04)

... and the member policy for posting commercial-promotional or 
personal-promotional content 
which says:    (05)

    "please make sure any commercial- or self-promotion material 
or reference are strictly limited to one's namesake page or a 
short signature block, and nowhere else as far as our open 
collaborative work environment is concerned."    (06)

Every now and then, we solicit support from both commercial and 
non-commercial institutions, and host events where we waive those 
policies in order to help the community gain a proper perspective 
and exposure to both open and non-open technologies or products. 
Therefore, if you product is, in fact, not an "open" product, 
please support us under those settings instead. We need your 
understanding and help so that the membership, as a whole, can 
adhere to the abovementioned policies.    (07)

Thanks & regards.  =ppy
