    The Webmaster Lab or The Webmaster's Lab or The Webmasters' Lab

    Well, the last two are kind of the same if you put them in a URL format. :)

    read up on copyright laws and then see that little text on the bottom of OT "OT X.2 Preview A0 :: Copyright © 2000-2008, Offtopic.com LLC. All Rights Reserved. "

    Granted its probably not trademarked, but with Fazle getting greedy and making the main forum a payperview forum, there is a very high chance he'll want some compensation, and that will still give him enough leg to stand on if he decides to sue you :mamoru:

    So I did some reading, and the laws stated that you can't copyright generic terms/wording. Webmaster is a generic term. Lab is short for laboratory, which is also a generic term.

    "If the term is found to be generic, 'it cannot be the subject of trademark protection under any circumstances,'" U.S. Chief District Judge John Coughenour, citing the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals 1999 opinion"

    Also, windows is a generic term.

    "As early as 2002, a court rejected Microsoft's claims, stating that Microsoft had used the term "windows" to describe graphical user interfaces before the product, Windows, was ever released, and that the windowing technique had already been implemented by Xerox and Apple many years before. Microsoft kept seeking retrial, but in February 2004, a judge rejected two of Microsoft's central claims. The judge denied Microsoft's request for a preliminary injunction and raised "serious questions" about Microsoft's trademark. "

    Fazle has never been a greedy guy. Fair yes, greedy no.

    eh?
