PPCGeeks.com listed in boot splash screen may be bad idea!!

Just wanted to put this out there to all of you making this unified rom and other roms for public distribution. It may be bad to list this site and possibly other individuals as the source in the event that MS or anyone else (carriers) got a wild hair up their a$$ and wanted to go after somebody for copyright or bricking devices. I have nothing against creating custom Roms or splashes, but setting something like this in a package that could get re-used by many people doing who knows what and having this set as a default, could really be a bad thing. More so as to PPCGeeks being an easy target to take the brunt of it as alias's are just alias's.

just food for thought,
saridnour

Very good point saridnour. In total agreement here.

The credits can be a hidden easter egg or something. Otherwise we may just want to consider just using that one with the Apache helicopter or something else that doesn't identify anyone.

I think everyone working on the ROMs can agree that none of us are doing it to see our name in lights.

Why not use your splash screen? I shot Pepsi out my nose when I read "Intel Inside, Idiot Outside" for the first time!

I too agree here. It is the only splash screen I have not changed, as it was very appropriate for the user at hand!!!

What if you have to take your phone in to be serviced, or something to that nature. I mean the lady at the counter my not notice anything, but the tech or insurance company may. The next thing they have is PPCGeeks along with the ppl who helped contribute to making these ROMs. Thats like commiting a robbery and then emailing the police giving the names and hang-outs of everyone involved. Just my WOW! cents

You can always claim that a virus must have sent the boot screen and renegade ROM to the phone.
