Please forgive me if I am addressing this question to the right people.

I tried to link an article, and it came back with a copyright notice. I do not see Examiner on the list on this thread.... Examiner responded to me saying that they do not have any policy regarding the re posting of articles from its site. According to them, each examiner owns their own material.

So, in light of this, could you please forward this onto whom ever could assist me with this issue??

Thank you very very much!!
