With my tongue firmly placed in my cheek (in other words, I am poking fun here…)

Some interesting notes from my review of trademark policies on the Autodesk website.

Children under the age of 13 are not allowed to use the Autodesk website or transmit or otherwise submit personal information to Autodesk. (Please pass this on to your kids.)

You may not use, download, upload, copy, print, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, post, transmit, or distribute any information from the Autodesk website in whole or in part without the express written authorization of Autodesk. (Does copying part of the trademark page violate this rule?)

AUTODESK AND/OR ITS RESPECTIVE SUPPLIERS MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE SUITABILITY OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, DOCUMENTS, AND RELATED GRAPHICS PUBLISHED ON THIS WEBSITE FOR ANY PURPOSE. ALL SUCH INFORMATION, CONTENT, DOCUMENTS, AND RELATED GRAPHICS ARE PROVIDED FOR YOUR USE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. (This one is in BOLD text. It must be important. So don’t assume that the website states any facts – just kidding – I love Autodesk. They are very honest folks – who can take a joke once in a while… I hope)

THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, DOCUMENTS, AND RELATED GRAPHICS PUBLISHED ON THIS WEBSITE COULD INCLUDE TECHNICAL INACCURACIES, ERRORS, OR OMISSIONS. (are there typos in the system requirements – or do I really need to buy a better machine than my old 386)

AUTODESK AND/OR ITS RESPECTIVE SUPPLIERS MAY, BUT IS NOT OBLIGATED TO, MAKE IMPROVEMENTS AND/OR CHANGES IN THE… PRODUCT(S), AND/OR THE PROGRAM(S) DESCRIBED HEREIN AT ANY TIME. (you mean that they may not fix the bugs in my copy of AutoCAD 13)

All of these comments are just done in fun. I hope that if I ever violate any on the trademark laws that the legal folks at Autodesk will understand that it just reflects my utter ignorance of such legal matters.

(HAR HAR)
