    I'd get it copyrighted...because knowing these folks they'll get a Chinese patent (which costs them buckleys) and will then request that VWgolf.net pay them royalty fees.

    I've seen it happen before...hope for the best...plan for the worst.

    Justin would know this, but under Australian law copyright is granted automatically for the life of the author/creator plus 50 years. Not sure how that works internationally, but suspect you'd need an international trademark for that. And then if someone infringes your rights you need to be prepared to fire up your lawyer.
