Nik says you have three months to challenge an image hijack

Don't put extra characters into Runout fields to distinguish betwwen etched and stamped portions.

Diognes explains how to do it right (January, 2018): http://www.ufanlaw.com/forum/thread/368277?page=2#7523520

Diognes endorses single-line Lp runout entries in the Forum discussion starting here and ending here, and also in the discussion beginning here and ending here.

How to deal with Corporate legal ending differences...

On explaining stamped vs. etched portions of runouts in BaOI descriptionfields, Diognes_The_Fox says in this Forum thread:
"If there is a good reason for differentiation, it might be a good place to expand that information out in the release notes rather than trying to come up with some system to force it into the matrix area. I have had some instances where knowing about stamped/etched differences was useful, but those are pretty extreme cases."
