    Possible dumb question, but I'm getting ready to order some new QSL cards and wanted to put the phrase "Good on QRZ.COM" on them.

    Am I allowed to do that? Is that phrase copyrighted ?

    Just the phrase, not the LOGO.

    Considering the general nature of that sentence I would have to think that it would not be copyrighted. I'm not associated with QRZ other than using this site and looking up calls.
