Please always tell us where such code comes from, to minimise copyright problems. Does i say here what tthe code is spposed to do, or is it simply an exam revision example?

Most of the code posted by me on this forum is written by me and also my country law supports use of any copyright material which is available publicly for educational purposes.So as long as i am using all these resources for learning ,it is not mandatory to tell the source legally.

You're posting on a us forum, not on a forum in what ever country your from... same for the code, it's not subjected to the law of the country the user is from, but under the law the writer is from...

That means the copyright holder has given permission for the material to be used.

Please read the link I posted earlier, particularly the parts about being professional·


Moving part of this discussion to the Ranch Office forum.

Sir,I agree with you regarding being professional but this website is available on all public network across the world that's why i am posting on this forum and according to WIPO Copyright Treaty the exclusive rights are only applicable in the country or region in which a patent has been filed and granted, in accordance with the law of that country or region and it is not possible for a non US resident to know about US laws.

There's still something like intellectual property... In Belgium (and I think in most western countries) you don't have to take a patent (which dosn't even apply here, cause for a patent it has to be new, not obvious and there needs to be an industrial applicability) or copyright something to be it's owner
