    Elastix is open source, so anyone can take it and modify it, as long as the source changes are made available to anyone delivered the product. And I am sure they will do so, as Chinese companies have the ultimate respect for copyright. ;)

    One day, there's a guy from Vopax which contacted me try to fix a remote extension from another country.
    This guy had doing a thread into this forum to ask help.

    But quickly, I ended to help this guy. He abused of our nice project.
    These guy aren't intersting. they don't want to share.
    In evidence, no Elastix logo, no Palosanto name, and even, there's a copyright!!

    Bad guy....

    You ask " . . . .why no one alarm them ?? . . ."

    Lee said (rather tongue in cheek I assume)

    " . . .Chinese companies have the ultimate respect for copyright . . ."


    We can't afford to alarm them as a group or they will just leave the world market and Walmart will go broke ;) . That will be the end of civilization as we know it.

    (sorry, couldn't resist)

    I can't actually understand your answer, the last time I was in Hong Kong, I was in a four star hotel, there was a note slipped under my door as to how I could acquire Music or Software from MS or Adobe "without license needed" by calling 866 on my phone, It was also on the internal CATV channel, equally propounding such availability. The booth whereby one got those illicit products, was in the the main lobby, that hardly suggests to me a rigorous protection of others intellectual property. I maintain my position. The local culture there was then corrupt, I hardly believe that it has changed for the better as you migrated from British rule to Chinese rule, in fact I believe the if you were honest with yourself you would accept the opposite, it would appear to be a cultural position more than anything else.

    I can't imagine a company could sold an Open Source product like Elastix.
    Ok he can make some money with lots of servicies arround. (Installlation, support..etc)

    Hello

    I known they can earn money by installation, support etc, but I want to confirm they can remove Elastix logo or not.

    Thanks !

    Hey Franck:

    Take all you clothes off, look at all the labels, in the USA you will unlikely find anything made there anymore, maybe in France they are made in Morocco, the problem is that your socks only last two months now, ask your mum how long she made them last. Crap is crap, we should stop wasting our money on it, n'est ce pas?

    regards

    Dick

    Not ethically, but who will stop them, maybe your chamber of commerce?

    A Logo isn't ALL.
    A company can put another an own logo, but somewhere, it must have an Elastix referency

    For example: Elastix rebuilt by Vopax. or Elastix relooked by Vopax... or I don't know what.....But somewhere, Palosanto or Elastix on every web page.

    I can roll until 660Km and my wife 300 or 400Km.
    After, I can work at home, so... no problem today.

    So, when you reach the age of 62 can you get free gas?

    I remain confused by French Socialism (but tend to agree with the concept, we don't have it here, if you are poor you are F*&*^ed ) :)

    And no dick!

    Before, we could go out when we had arround 58 or 60 years old and 40 years subscription. Now it will be 42 years so 62 years and even 65 years to have a full money.

    I don't see my wife to work to 65 years!!!!
