Dear Sirs,

Our Request:

We our currently compiling a historical works on our non-profit web site, entitled "WWIIOL - A History in the Making". Our web site is a player based community squad site for the use with upcoming game: "World War II Online".

Our pages will give the reader the ability to learn what went into the making of the game "World War II Online" from it's early days in 1999 to our current date. The pages would be available to the gaming community, to read only. We would like to include your web sites archived WWIIOL news information in our library. All web sites we have contacted have so far been very helpful.

It is in essence our pages will be much like going to the library and sitting down with your favorite history book.

We are growing concerned as many of the documented sources on the web barring this topic, that were once stored deep within archives, have already been deleted. Even after we've asked for copies, but since we're believers in the laws, we have to often times bite our lips! More then once we have been told by web sites to just link to the page, to then later find out the page had been deleted!

What we would like from you is:

1. Granted rights to copy the above mentioned article/interview to be displayed at our web site as a historical source of information,
(without screen shots being used, as we know they are often trademarked and granted use by the owner to you only). It is NOT our intention to use any attached screen shots!

2. The use of your site logo to display with the article as a means to show the viewer the original owned source, (This will be used in conjuntion with a link to your home page).

Our final thoughts: We understand the concerns owners have at releasing items such as this, but it is in our interest to display the above mentioned items in the same fashion as would a museum. It is not our intention to illegally copy such items, as many do. It is also not our intention to monetarily gain any currency from the use of the items. We run a free and clean web site using "Fortune city" as our host. In a nutshell we have made ourselves aware of copyright concearns.

Our squad and gaming community wait in suspense for your reply.

Thank you for your time.

Signed: Mark Clifton - WWIIOL12hj Web Master
