Hi - You know how there are often stickers on computers etc which says, "Property of Microsoft. Do not remove" etc, I want to say a variation on this - "Property of Humanity" - in Dutch...

it's slightly odd i know, but it's for a poster.

Thanks in advance!

Also, is there a good online dutch-english dictionary - the only one i can really find is travelang which isn't that extensive. Any recommendations?
Thanks

    I think Eigendom van het Mensdom or, slightly more archaic, using the genitive, which I like, Eigendom des Mensdoms would work.

    I should translate this by 'eigendom van de mensheid'

    mensdom: human species (opposite of 'dierenrijk' ~ 'animals')
    mensheid: more general and abstract, 'human nature', 'culture'

    ciao!
