Thanks for this question, Ron...
Yes...you are welcome to teach, or show SignWriting, and the SignWriter
Computer Program, to others. You can also direct your students and friends
to our free Lessons Online on our web site:
LESSONS ONLINE DIRECTORY
Yes...you have my permission to give the Shareware Disk, that came with
your SignWriter Computer Program package, to anyone you wish.
Or you can tell them to download the Shareware for free from our web site at:
So the shareware is free for anyone to use and you can make as many copies
of the Shareware disk as you want!
If there is someone on the List who does not have access to the web, and
you would like the Shareware disk, then write to me privately and I will be
happy to send it to you :-)
Yes...you have my permission to make copies of individual pages from your
manuals for your students. You are very polite to ask and I appreciate it!
We are a nonprofit and SignWriting is my gift to the world. So I am open to
people wanting to use the system, and if a photocopy here and there helps,
then please feel free to do so with my blessing!
All my best wishes to you -
