Dear Mr. de Man,
you can making fun in the way you prefer. Isn't a problem.
My idea is not to sell someone his own registered coat of arms
[even unregistered can be published, they get the same important
a copyright protection, that is what lacks in Italy (and not only,
the type of heraldic services normally sold on line: bullshits that no
a minimum of intelligence or historical-genealogical-heraldic
knowledge buy: homonymy is
not a genealogical research and use a family name coat of arms without
research to see if one has or not the right to bore it, is a must. I
have nothing to do
with those services, try to register an ancient coat of arms without
submitting me all
documents (authenticated by authorities or archives in which are found
that proof the right to bore this coat of arm or noble/semi-noble cor.
feathers (in Italian heraldry bourgeois have three feathers,
semi-noble five, noble coronet of
rank) and the first thing I do is to refuse the registration) and that
is why I've started
this project, and that is also why I do not consider my project a
simple commercial one.
Normally my historical collaborations and heraldic projects were, are
and will be for free,
but I can't pay publishers or domain hosting companies for free]
someone can choose if publish or not their coat of arms
(cd-rom or book) that can buy if want or not to do so. And this is
About the Lombardy (viscontea-sforzesca Lombardy, XIV-XV cen.)
The idea is to put it on line as a fully free database, copyrighted to
of Italian laws about copyright (free consulting but not downloadable,
reverse engin., quoted without written permission of author, etc.)
Latin: maybe you have reason. Codex, codicis is effectively a
masculine name in classic latin
so the attribute should be heraldicus and not heraldicum. But how
about Du Cange?
Codex, tabula, etc. changed mean in medieval latin, I was sure that
codex become neutral, anyway I'll to check it again.
If I'm wrong I'll change the attribute, nothing more simple.
