Quickie Consult 87 I

From the Desk of Dr. Mark Studin
Academy of Chiropractic
Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

"Copying Graphics From the Web Site is Copyright Infringement & Illegal"

Unfortunately, some of you have not heeded my past warnings not to take materials from this Web site and have published them on your Web site. This includes graphics. Every graphic on our site has either been purchased or used with the permission of the owners of the pictures. We have gotten permission for you to use them on the bi-monthly fliers on an individual basis, or in PowerPoint presentations that you have purchased for "lawyers presentations."


I cannot give you permission to copy any pictures for use on your Web site. You must independently purchase them. The #1 picture "stolen" from our site is that of the ambulance and damaged car (see below).

Simply put, it is ILLEGAL and you can get sued if you steal this picture without purchasing it as I did. Therefore, you must either purchase the picture independently or take the picture off of your site. The minimum statutory fine for copyright infringement at this level is $150,000 plus legal fees.

You have been warned...The owners of the materials aren't as pleasant as this e-mail.
