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://
www.SignWriting.org....where it states all the copyrights for the web
sites and for the trademarks...you 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....
