Well not exactly, but lets face it back in 2006 until the old voices were
taken down completely unintentionally you were.
So i'd say why not host the voice until the manufacturer or there
representative asks you not to and then of course take it down. I mean lets
face it it took the makers of the natural voices long enough to notice, and
if a voice maker does notice and cares, there going to send an e mail out
saying take them down, fine but that's not exactly going to get anyone into
trouble is it if you comply.
i'm not saying stick voices up made with natural voices again, but there are
a few other options out there to chose from.
