Thanks for the info all,
    as Arne correctly spotted I was only interested in helping fund
global domination, which does not come for free. I can design my own T
Shirt and have it made but benefit to OM = Zero. Not interested in this
at all. If OM have made it clear they are not into derived products then
that answers the question I asked and the subject is closed.

Thanks again, like I say not all ideas can be winners ;-) or should that
be :-(
