I know there were quite a few people from this board who used to visit my "Bruins Only Autographs" web site over the years.

Just so you're aware, I had received an email from Geocities stating they received an email from the Boston Bruins organization telling them to take down my site; that was about 1 month ago. They claim the B's logos on the website were a copyright infringement.....the site was only to share information and not for commercial purposes so this still baffles me.

I have a backup on CD ROM and may put it back up in the fall.

Those of you who know how cheap the Bruins organization is will not find this surprising.....guess they weren't collecting any precious royalties from the 400-600 hits per month I was getting.

BBB, I'm not a legal expert, but why not just start it up again without the logos, or perhaps a slightly altered one which can't be construed as copyright infringement? Anyway, whatever you decide good luck with the site and getting it back up and running.

Just change the logo a bit, then they cannot do anything about it.
