It was recently brought to my attention that someone was about to add AtarICQ to an update/download tool, offering AtarICQ updates as part of a general updating scheme. Since this is in direct conflict with the distribution policy of the application, which clearly states that you need the authors explicit permission to add AtarICQ "to any kind of distribution of bundled shareware/freeware in any form".
 
And yes, "in any form" means exactly that - AtarICQ can't be made part of any kind of software bundle or updating scheme/tool/script without an explicit permission to do so.
 
Hopefully noone in the Atari community in the year 2010 will lack the decency to honour a written distribution policy as well as the programmers clearly stated wishes.
 
I have now added a clarification to the distribution policy on the download page.
