Thank you, Gerard, for your message!

Just for clarification...

SignWriting copyrights and Sutton Movement Writing copyrights, and  
all our trademarks too, are all held by the Center for Sutton  
Movement Writing Inc (CSMW)...not by Valerie Sutton personally...

CSMW is a non-profit organization founded for educational purposes in  
1974...and the Deaf Action Committee for SignWriting (DAC) is an arm  
of CSMW. CSMW raises the funds through our non-profit status, to help  
fund DAC publications for printing and preparation.

For example, if you look at the bottom of our web site...http:// it states all the copyrights for the web  
sites and for the can see nothing is copyrighted to  
Valerie Sutton personally.

Just thought you should know that Valerie Sutton does not hold the  
copyrights....CSMW does and has for some 25 years or so....
