Everything I post here is Kopyleft, unless I say otherwise (which I probably won't). Please notify me if you use my crap in any publications, so I can remind that doing so is probably a terrible idea.

Hell, if something I've created is posted here and it's good, use it, it's a compliment.  I am an attention whore and fame skank, though, and would like credit and notification.

Anything in any of my identities is kopylefted.

Just attribute a made up quote to "C.G. Casey" and I'll be happy.

If I happen to write something worthy, all I ask is that you don't call it yours and DO cite a ref...even if you just say: "Some chick I ran into said___"

That way, if I ever paraphrase myself somewhere else; I don't get accused of plagiary for something *I* wrote.

I didn't realize that I haven't posted anything in this thread.

If I ever manage to write anything worth repeating then it is KopyLeft/Share-Alike. I'd like to be notified because my ego needs every little boost it can get.

ummmmmm that's not... really how kopyleft works

if you really don't want people reposting your stuff, don't mark it (K).

marking it (K) gives anyone the right to repost, modify, or even sell your work.

TITCM... though there ARE licenses that allow you to make specifications about what can or can't be done with your work. You could even write your own license if you wanted... though that is probably a bit overkill.

And I thought the 23ae post was fine. At least he properly attributed the work.

EDIT: Actually, to stop someone from re-posting your material, you would probably need to actually claim Copyright. I ran through Creative Commons and some of the other copyleft licenses and none of them seem to permit saying "But Loveshade can't use it". Under Copyright, though, in theory you could say "Free redistributable except for Loveshade." I'm not a copyright lawyer, so I don't know how much actual legal footing you would have...

Since his real name isn't Loveshade anyway, I doubt it would work. Besides, why let some spag fuck with your philosophy? ;-)

I'd be thrilled if someone was able to sell and make money off of my stuff.  As long as they let me know about it.  I don't care about the chicken-scratch, but I do need to feed my ego.   :lol:

Idea:

If/when you change your Kopyleft status, or want to change how your posts are licensed, modify your post ITT, but specify the date at which point it applies...

For example, if I decide that all my stuff from now on is protected by Copyright, I should note "All posts from 1/22/09 onwards are no longer Kopyleft"

I'm not sure of the legality of copyrighting your work after it's entered the public domain...



Also: if you change your status, modify your original post ITT! Recently I was going through this thread to find out if someone was (K), and found their post ITT. But I realized that if they changed their license later on in the thread, I wouldn't see the note.

If you want to use a copyleft or copyright license, you should state it at the end of the piece... I don't think it holds up if you post it in a different thread, 40 posts down...

Kopyleft, on the other hand... well, it doesn't matter since its a Discordian license ;-)

Also, I think there have been a couple legal questions in the FSF which indicate you can't un-Public Domain something...

One of my teachers last year said that anything they wrote for lectures belonged to the University, which she was pissed off about. When I suggested that she put it online first and release it to public domain, so that the Uni couldn't claim it after that, she seemed to think that wasn't possible.

I still think she must be wrong, but maybe she'd signed a contract saying that she would create content for the Uni or some bullshit like that?
