The publication (43 pages) is dated 1988. The DMCA (1998) and subsequent 
legislation may have changed the landscape.

My (ignorant) opinion -- just don't. Is it worth the effort to research? 
Is it worth paying a lawyer to research it and give an opinion that may be 
worth nothing until it is examined in court?

If you want to display something custom, how about a 'wrapper' script that 
displays a file using 'curl' before handing off to Asterisk -- easier to 
implement, easier to maintain, no legal BS to consider.

Or can you express your creativity by fiddling with ASTERISK_PROMPT?

Thanks in advance,
