And my reply. When using the word "Steal" I was not meaning it in the literal sense as I am quite aware that they are most likely in the public domain. However they are not created by you, but someone else's work and effort that you are capitalizing on and as such I believe you are profiteering off of some one else's creative efforts.

Additionally their have been plenty of free quotes display software available during the history of computers. For instance the DEC PDP11 series, over 30 years ago, under RT and RSX always displayed a daily quote at login.

As you indicated you quotes are public domain and therefore many website have such listings that can be found with a simple search, easily created during a login sequence for free.

While I have not looked lately, I am almost positive that their are similar programs and widgets also available for free.

Based on your product and response it strikes me that you may be a disciple of the great performer - W.C. Fields. Allow me to provide you with a quote of his - for free:

" It is immoral to allow a sucker to keep his money."

Now let me get this straight. This developer steals quotes, from other peoples creative efforts ; puts them into a file; and then tries to profit from their efforts.

I think got it now.

Allow me a moment of rebuttal. Gathering a small number of quotes from various sources to add to my collection is called Quote Compiling, not "stealing". All the quotations are Public Domain and have been properly attributed. I make no Copyright claim to them, as my web site Disclaimer makes clear.

You have only to go to your local bookstore to see many examples of the long tradition of quotation compiling.

The small charge covers the two decades I spent compiling/editing quotes and developing the software.

I couldn't look at something that ugly, not even if I'd be paid for it.

Too bad Pervisiontracker is never updated any more, this looks like a real good candidate.
