A: This could be something that intellectual property attorneys would have insight into, but your question remains open for two weeks. It may have been overlooked in the posted categories of Government & Municipal Law. Some questions go unanswered on this forum, but you could try reposting under Intellectual Property categories such as Copyright for better chances of a response. Good luck
