Also, I suspect a Ford site will have copyright information at the bottom, such as:
"©2015 Ford Motor Company"

USMC Vet, yes blue oval forums looks like a Ford site, but the Terms of Use have Nevada as the state in case litigation is required:

http://www.blueovalforums.com/forums...ion=boardrules

[near the bottom -- choice of law and venue items]

And I don't see a clear Copyright statement at the bottom of any page.

My guess, and this is only a guess, is that Ford has licensed the right to use Ford images etc. to some private party, and that party is making money by hosting/organizing blueoval forums.

As I said last night, the Internet is like the Wild West!

Just when you think you have something figured out, it morphs into . . . . .

As a further example of the Internet as Wild West, go to the bottom of this page and click on Terms of Use (in the blue border). This site is owned by VerticalScope Inc. of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Do an Internet search for the parent company name, and check out the various brand names it includes -- over 300 different websites! 80 million unique visitors per month . . .

Including Contractor Talk for home improvement:

http://www.contractortalk.com/

An entire parallel universe out there . . .

PS -- Every time you click on one of the links above, a cookie is left on your computer. Thus clearing cookies very often is important in my eyes . . . especially before you go to other websites . . .
