    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.

    Suggestion: Why not use the phrase, "My most recent email is on QRZ,"

    or, "My email is current on QRZ."

    Good on QRZ always seemed odd to me. JMO:)

    Don't see how it could be a copyright issue.
    Is just a shortened way of saying...
    My email address is good on QRZ.com
    My mailing address is good on QRZ.com
    ETC.

    "I'm Good on QRZ"

    Interesting. I never thought it to mean anything about email. I just thought it was a reference that my info page is on QRZ.
