Now I received an email from the publisher of S**** and L**** in the U.S. telling me to remove A COMIC on the presbyter cocidus I had on the site quoted from a 1995 S**** monthly journal.
I removed this image now too and I removed an article of 2000 on the NH website published in L****.
Both had been in the menue M 4 Links & more --> This & that
It had been possible in the past to quote sources in research of course with naming the source - which I did.

Stamp collecting without using SG, Scott, Michel etc numbers; how could you identify stamps and how would you buy. eBay uses all these numbers, has to as it would never sell very much.
There must be a legal arguement that allows the use of such numbers, providing you acknowledge the originator of the numbering system.
My Tokelau book, I created my own numbers, because SG did not list as much as I wanted; however, I also included a cross ref with SG.
However, I have an ongoing problem with cat. # in auction lists; as I believe SG and Scott numbers are quoted a lot instead of the major catalogue of that country. e.g. German stamps should use Michel and not SG or Scott; especially problems in some periods using the same price for mint hinged and mint unhinged! Serious collectors of a country use the major & specialised catalogue of that area.
Not enough members using this forum yet; I hope they will as it is a very useful tool.
I will be interested in further developments.
