While I’m still in the research phase, I wanted to pass along a couple links and one bit of advice. I must say, once I get all the moving pieces down, this should be pretty neat. I have no timeline for when the tool will be done, but I’m betting it’ll be an adventure. Stay tuned.

The namespace and file name would be IIS7Demos. The class name would be imageCopyrightUIProvider
