Hello,

If you have an Apple iTouch/iPhone, the snapszli (schnapsen, ulti, 66, etc) is available as a card game. Unfortunately, the developer (not me) has used the french suit version of the cards, saying that he had problems getting copyright clearance from the Austrian manufacturers using their designs.

I suggested him to use the Hungarian designs, since that is the original - if I'm not mistaken.

Here's the link to the card game:
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/schnapsen/id389078930?uo=4&mt...

Does anyone know if the card designs are copyrighted? Could it be soled if used in the game? I will also try to contact the Jatek Kartya Gyar where they print the cards, see if they know something.

Thanks!
