I'd like to make the comics on http://www.bonejangles.com freely available for anybody to use.

Sweet thanks for bumping! I got distracted reading those a long time ago!

(BTW where did Bobby whatshisname go? He used to post his works here, but I haven't seen him in a while?)

Anything I post here is (k) unless stated otherwise.

Anything I link to (games, blog posts, pics, etc.) is (c) unless stated otherwise (a lot of the freebie RPG things I do have Creative Commons licenses of some sort).

For the (c) stuff, I'll most likely give you permission to use it if you ask me (attribution required, modification allowed, and other details will vary depending on the piece). The only exceptions are for things I'm trying to sell and for the instances where an existing agreement prevents me from allowing the work to be re-published.

Anything that had a copyright on it before I got my grubby paws on it retains those things. If I forget to credit you, please yell and I will correct it.

Anything I create, write, draw, or mash together is yours to use however you like on the strict conditions that you do not credit me in any way.

The primary things that seem to make up people's restrictions are Attribution, Notification, Non-Commercial, Share-Alike, Alteration, Do Whatever, and Ask First.

Ask for all instances. Different requests may apply depending on the piece and the medium.

As far as music is concerned- any piece that i have written alone should be considered the copyrighted material of kevin mulkerrins unless otherwise stated. If its a colaboration i defer to the consensus/majority opinion of the other musicians.

Would it be useful if we could somehow put this in our profiles or something? Like an extra signature or location field, but for kopyleft statements?

Dunno if SMF2 would allow easily for such a mod (adding an extra field to an important table can be hard depending on the DB structure), but I could look into it.

Also I think I'd change mine to "Attribution as 000 preferred for Discordian content, ask otherwise. "

Although the "ask if you want something else" bit holds for everybody of course. You can always ask :)

edit: and KUDOS for the work on sorting this out!

Easier way might be "ask" or "no problem".  If someone has particulars, they can answer that when asked.

Asking should really always be the default for everything, unless the author has specified the republication status in the piece. Just in terms of general courtesy and ethical considerations.

Yeah I think everybody would always appreciate being notified of the fact that their work is being used. (Assuming they're okay with it) it's a very nice compliment and motivates them to maybe make more.

I might put a copyright/kopyleft statement in my sig tonight just to make it easier for anyone who wants to use anything ive put up. It doesnt solve keeping track of everyone but its something i can do in the short term.
