In this day and age, piracy is one of the number one crimes that is epidemic and can only be stopped by (1) recognizing what Intellectual Property is; (2) Respecting the rights and restrictions of all Intellectual Property, regardless of its form; and (3) to ethically practice and be vigilant of the rights of other individuals/companies/institutions Intellectual Property.

For these reasons, as well as what Intellectual Property means to our company, we respect the rights of all materials created by other authors, whatever it may be; however we are vigilant regarding the protection of our own Intellectual Property which represents over 36+ years of hard work, effort and labor.
