Is this OK, or is there any additions are deletions required

This is what's on the back of the DVD cover at the top.

Edit: Please, I need some positive input before I commit all of this to the cover, as I don't want to get something wrong, miss some ones name out or need to remove something that shouldn't be on the cover. Also, I can't create all the covers until this item has been given the go-ahead.

Drop "index.php" off the apov link, it's not needed and it looks messy next to the others

Cheers KG This is exactly what I'm wanting from everyone

EDIT: Hmmm. Been thinking about this for a while, I sort of feel guilty for not adding other important links to the cover like, WinUAE and KG WHDLoad. If anybody should think these should be added, after all, where would we be without them, please make your statements below

Don't feel guitly for not adding my site.

It doesn't really have anything to do with the Aminet CD, so not to worry.

Well KG, you and the WHDLoad Team have done a great job for us with the installer's and your preinstalled packages, so i think you and them need some credit too.
Remember that WHDLoad installer's was original on the Aminet server's till someone found out that it was "illegal" to upload them to Aminet and it was "illegal" to use them because they broke the copy protection on the game disk's that we have bought legally and wanted to install on our Amiga HD, not all game's for the Amiga had the HD install option.

Nothing wrong with a bit of advertising, if I can help getting those who deserve some notice, then why not

Besides, this is an EAB cover, you're part of EAB, so are a lot of other people who have made our Amiga lives more easier and all I want to do is give a helping hand, although very small, to those who deserve it.

Bearing in mind, the space is still quite small, and obviously EAB and Aminet links are the priority but I am sure the worthy can have a link on the cover too

So, can I link your site KG

This is what it looks like so far, there's only 2 more spaces for another 2 links, but who shall I put there?

Am I the only one to find the copyright notice a bit ironic? Not that you don't deserve the credit DH, but... erm... well... you know Well it's up to you to decide in which form it's presented

I'm not too good at notices of that kind, and maybe it is a bit overdone. Maybe someone could help me with an appropriate copyright notice that reflects better than what that one does.

How about it TCD, you're good with words

Oh well, now I've got me into something Well I would make it shorter and less 'official' (without disrespecting your great work mate ).

Cover design, artwork and the DH Logo by DemonHellraiser (2009)
English Amiga Board Logo and Boing Ball by RCK (2001 - 2009)
Cover artwork may not be modified, published or used in any commercial way.

Maybe something like that. Not sure where to put the year in there to be honest As you can see I left out the words 'copyright' or 'rights', because I think they doesn't sound right for the purpose. Well on the other hand that are just my two cents

Actually TCD, I like it, it's not too official, and bearing in mind, any work done by others hold a copyright notice anyway, without the word or symbol copyright.

Great, I have a thousand more wording jobs for you now

btw. I've changed the heading from 'Copyright Notice (Cover Only)' to 'Important Notice'

Edit: Image has changed on post 686 to TCD's suggestion.

Well, RCK was on yesterday and he never looked at my PM regarding the use of the EAB logo and boing ball He must be too busy and just missed it completely.

I have copied and pasted the same message and emailed it directly to him. The waiting game continues
