Cheers nido. I'm not sure it's common knowledge but every book in the world has an ISBN number for which it can be found through databases: %0D*%0D*http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:ISBN%0D*%0D*The barcode is a reference to this along with the obvious consumer connection. I'm praying this gets chosen.%0D*%0D*

That's a familiar cut and paste response from 99 designs. They may has well remove the report button from their website because complaints about plagiarism often fall on deaf ears.
