    I won't be jumping any more. From what I understand it hurts pretty bad to jump without a chute. I will be browsing your site from time to time though.

    Leashed are for those who wishes to own a site for a year and see how it goes. If it goes very well, they have the option to pay a small amount of fee to make it a licensed instead of a leashed version.
    Actually, that's not quite accurate and might add to the confusion.

    leased license = temporary license, good for 12 months, then has to be bought again or upgraded to an owned license, else forum has to be removed
    owned license = lifetime license, with yearly renewal fee to receive upgrades. The version you have you can use indefinitely.

    Both variants, leased and owned, are, of course, licensed - you don't upgrade from leased to licensed.

    Additional to whatever license you have, you can buy the branding free option. This is a one time fee that allows you to remove the copyright notice from the footer for the license you bought it for.

    Yep... that's how I learnt also Ace. I removed the copyright component as text and replaced it as an image, to stop bots picking up vbulletin sites. I put the copyright back, but forgot to add the date aspect, I think from memory. Got an email just like yours to correct the issue. My fault... but it was great to know exactly what was and what was not required. I just stuffed up and learnt. Jelsoft were very good about it though I believe.

    I'm referring to the TITLE tag at the top, not the footer.

    If I wanted to remove the footer I could do that too because I purchased the software and am not leasing it, but I only want to edit the title at the top of the browser.

    Why would you pay $100.00 a year to lease it when you can own it for $180?

    After two years of leasing you would actually lose money.

    Thanks for you help...greatly appreciated.

    Now, as for the footer. You cannot remove it if you get the licensed version. You'll have get the Branding Free to remove that.

    Looks like you have your issue solved Jump, but I have to comment (off topic):

    SWEET SITE. I've got a few hundred jumps under my belt, but have given it up. FEMA confiscated two chutes and about $5000 worth of rescue provisions after a gear jump I made after Katrina in an effort to rescue some flood victims. Evidently my help was deemed a "hazard" because I didn't have a federal permit to do it. All I did was drop a raft, essential first aid and swiftwater rescue gear, and myself, into a flooded plain right outside of New Orleans. I proceed to go pull people off roofs and get them back to solid ground, but I was ruled a hazard and investigated as being a potential looter. I've never put fast air under my armpits since then.

    I'll certainly post a link to your site to some friends of mine who still enjoy the wabbly face.

    Actually, removing it from the footer copyright statement is a breach of the EULA.

    From an email I received the other day:
    Greetings

    It has come to our attention that part of the legally-required vBulletin copyright information has been removed or hidden from the footer template of your forum and as such contravenes the vBulletin License Agreement. You can read the License Agreement here:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/order/license_agreement.php

    The footer template must contain, at least, the following, it must be in English, and it must be readily visible:

    Powered by vBulletin
    Copyright © 2000-2009 Jelsoft Enterprises Limited.

    Please restore the Powered by vBulletin.

    If you do not wish to display the vBulletin copyright information, you may opt to purchase the Branding Free option. The 'Branding Free' license is available at a cost of $170 per license and only applies to a single site/license. You can purchase this in the 'Upgrade/Renew License' link in the Members Area.

    Once you have purchased this option, you will have the right to remove the vBulletin/Jelsoft copyright info from the footer template. Note that this is for one license only and is in addition to the cost of the license. If you ever transfer this license, the branding free option will transfer with it.

    Also please be aware that you must retain all copyright notices within the actual product programming code (these notices do not affect any visible vBulletin pages) and this does not allow you to re-brand the software with another name. It only allows you to remove the Jelsoft/vBulletin copyright information.

    (You may remove the logo and replace it with your own without purchasing the branding free option, but not the copyright information.)

    Please take action to rectify the infringement within 28 days in order that the way forward can be determined. Please note that addressing the matter will prevent the possibility of the license being revoked, following which a new license will be necessary to continue running your vBulletin. In this eventuality, appropriate action may be taken by our copyright enforcement agency in accordance with DMCA rules. Thank you for taking care of this promptly.

    All the best,
    **** *****

    Branding

    what is branding, leasing or owning the software. Or is branding something different? Thanks

    Jump... you can remove the title tag vbulletin aspects... ie. remove it all and rewrite it. You cannot remove, the footer "Powered by vBulletin" and copyright details without a branding free license. This is my understanding of the licensing, which states; "All Software copyright notices within design templates must remain unchanged (and visible)."

    The title tag "Powered by vBulletin" is not a copyright notice. If you remove the copyright under the licensing arrangements, it warns you before doing so, and at a guess, would likely notify Jelsoft.

    You need to get a Branding Free license to do that.
