Laser FAQ, as well as other material created by Filip Gieszczykiewicz or

Copyright law to ensure that they remain free for fair use.
Use of any material from the FAQs in any way, shape, or form without

And not to put too fine a point on it in case this isn't obvious: This means
that it is totally illegal to incorporate *any* FAQ material in a product or
service (or advertising or promotional material for a product or service)
that is sold for profit without prior authorization - period.
In addition, placing FAQ material on a page with sponsored links as
with the Google AdSense program, or for use as a means of attracting
visitors to your Web site to boost traffic and advertising revenue
is also forbidden. Violation of any of these principles will not be tolerated
and legal action will be considered if a friendly reminder is not
adequate to correct the transgression.
Please note that translations of the FAQs are copyright by the original author
and the translation author(s) but they retain the original mission.
Material from others is in addition, copyright by the contributing authors.
