Subject Re: NOTICE statements with original donations
Date Mon, 17 Oct 2016 12:51:12 GMT
As minimal as possible, yes. BUT all *required* text needs to be
in there. So if the claim of original donation is required to
be conveyed, then it must be in NOTICE. If there is no requirement
as such, then it should not be.
