If I remember correctly, this is violating the license agreement.

It is legal!!!

That is what Ted (from Infopop)wrote:
"the powered by that appears in the title bar... that is not required. The only rquirement is the "powered by" that appears at the bottom of each page."
Look at http://www.scriptkeeper.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=27&t=000162

Or run frames like I do, so technically I never "removed" the InfoPop title suffix, but it doesn't display. Perfectly valid approach.

Yes, the InfoPop copyright notice at the bottom of all screen must not be removed, however. That's part of the licensing agreement and is clearly stated. I have no issues with that at all, nor should anyone - it's their product even if it's your hacks.

This is kind of a dumb point but being around the automotive bussiness for most of my life people have always modified there cars for performance as well as looks.
But if someone buys a Mercedes the last thing they want to do is remove the emblem.
Since Info Pop makes such a good product and charges like they do.
WHY would anyone want to remove it.????
If thats the object why not just use one of the free boards!!!!!!!!
Just my 2 cents

Now they say you can't you to put the words UBB, Ultimate Bulletin Board, or InfoPop in any image that you make. *looking for post...looking for post* Found it - right here . How stupid is this? I don't get it - I thought the goal was to give them marketing. Who knows.
