In light of the recent Intellectual Property discussions, we should probably restart this thread and ask people which license they want to use. That should alleviate some of our future IP issues.

I have also updated my stance, which I'm glad I did because I have since then posted work that I definitely want to retain copyright to.

Anything that I have already given permission to publish, I would like to clarify I released under Creative Commons, rather than a single-use copyright license. Do with it what thou wilt, more or less.

For anything which I have not yet given permission to publish, I will need to clarify at the time of granting permission whether I am releasing it as a single-use copyright license or under Creative Commons.

Nigel, "Creative Commons" refers to a set of six different licenses. You should pick one of them, this page http://creativecommons.org/about/licenses explains what they do (in very short non-legalese single paragraphs).


Awesome, thanks! Then I release work that I have given permission to publish up to this point under the Attribution Share Alike license. :)

um okay forgive me if I'm starting to become anal about this, but you mean the "Attribution Share Alike" license, right?

the top four icons just state which "ingredients" there are in a CC license, below that are the six actual licenses, which are:

- Attribution (just credit me)
- Attribution Share Alike (credit me, but re-release under this same license)
- Attribution No Derivatives (credit me, but reproduce it unchanged in whole)
- Attribution Non-Commercial (credit me, .. etc, just read the webpage ok)
- Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike

All my work is covered under the - I couldn't give a flying fuck  - license.

Use it with or without attribution, for free or for profit in whole or in part. I don't post here cos I think I think any of this shit matters in the slightest. And I'm a firm believer in stealing intellectual property if and when I goddamn well feel like it. This applies to meaningless posts on public discussion forums the same as it applies to Movies, CD's, Books, Software and anything else freely* available for download. Be a bit two faced if I didn't include my own insignificant ramblings in this category.

Yeah sure it's a nice ego stroke if you include my name at the bottom but if you want to claim it as your own - be my guest.

It certainly is beautifully smug and condescending.

I've revised my original "do whatever you like" position. As of now and retroactively, all material posted on PDCOM by me (whether it actually originated with me or not) is subject to the following terms and conditions:

Quote
THE MATERIAL MAY NOT BE REVISED, PUBLISHED, REPRODUCED, READ, CONSUMED, BURNED, PRINTED, ALLUDED TO, THOUGHT ABOUT, REMEMBERED, OR OTHERWISE MENTIONED PURPOSELY OR ACCIDENTALLY BY ANY PARTY WITHOUT PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT AND PAYMENT IN A FORM AGREED TO BY THE AUTHOR BUT NOT NECESSARILY BY YOU.

THE SINGLE EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE IS THAT ALL THE ABOVE MENTIONED RIGHTS ARE AUTOMATICALLY GRANTED TO ANY PERSON WHO PHYSICALLY INSERTS THE MATERIAL INTO SOME BODILY ORIFICE BELOW THE WAIST LINE, VIDEOTAPES THEMSELVES DOING IT WITHOUT ANY FORM OF CENSORSHIP OR IMAGE OBFUSCATION, POSTS THE VIDEO ON THE INTERNET, AND LINKS TO THAT VIDEO NO FEWER THAN SEVEN CALENDAR DAYS PRIOR TO THE TIME THEY INTEND TO USE THE MATERIAL IN SOME OTHER FASHION. JUST SAYING YOU DID IS GOOD ENOUGH, TOO.
