about "proof of existence"
I have more than a hundred Gigabytes of digital files on my computer (mostly engineering drawings). If I have to present these in a court years from now, how can I prove that these files existed years ago? My approach is to store these files on a flash drive, seal this drive in a paper "evidence bag" and date it and sign it in presence of a notary.

Can a student use their university logo on their business card without the school's permission?
I'm a senior university student and was wondering if I'd get in trouble for using the school's logo on a personal business card. As I understand it, the school's logos are all trademarked and they don't allow students to buy business cards from the school; they only allow it for their faculty and staff.
