Use anything I've written, in whole or in part, in or out of context. Credit me if you like. Claim it was you who said it if that's what floats your boat.

If for any reason I write or post anything of interest on these forums, anybody can use anything I write, though I'd prefer it if you credited me.

(Aw hell, who am I kidding? Nobody's ever gonna want anything I write or create. Still, I write this to reaffirm what little hope I have of being interesting.)

If I've written anything of use to you, gank it.

Credit "DJRubberducky" on everything except the "black sheep are still sheep" meme-bomb.  That needs to remain anonymous from here on out.  I don't think it's as effective otherwise.

- no using my work to purposely or accidentally demonstrate what a moron i am
- no using my work without thinking it through. srsly. ive done it and it isn't pretty.
- if using my work in some way contributes to the downfall of western society, you have to give me credit. otherwise plagiarize all you want.

You can use my stuff.
I especially encourage you to use any of my wonderfully crafted puns. 
But, if you can't stomach it, just stick to the rants and what not.  yeah what not.

As far as credit, if you are going to credit me I prefer my full name and not the initials.  I'm pretentious like that. 

Otherwise, have at it.

With regards old posters who no longer frequent this place, may I suggest dropping the 'polite' bullshit and yoinking whatever the hell you want. How much respect do you have for copyright outside PD.com? Why should this place be any different? I mean sure -we're all friends here so it's nice to ask but srsly - fuck everyone else. Copyright theft only ever matters a fuck if you're planning making money from it and, even then, it's only ever likely to result in legal action if the owner was making money from it before the yoink. Stealing the intellectual property of someone who was dumb enough to blurt out something on the internets is your birthright - exercise it.

after some thought, i came to this conclusion:

anything i post here that is related to discordian projects, the BIP, stuff like that is free to use. you may credit me as "000" (unless it's a really short/small thing that would make crediting look odd, you decide).

i make this provision because i have once (maybe twice) posted non-discordian themed cartoons of mine on these boards and, while i most probably wouldn't have any problems with anybody using them, don't want to place them in the public domain.

isn't kopyleft supposed to be "all rights reversed"? what's all this "i'm (k), but you gotta credit me" milarky?

no i kid, it's fair.

but does normal copyright even apply to shit posted in web forums? i'm inclined to feel free to steal ideas from anywhere myself, and if i remember (unlikely) who gave me the idea i will merely thank them. i'd generally rather come up with my own ideas, but i am quite a lazy bastard, so no guarantees.


so, if i steal stuff for (and only for) assignments, crediting previous authors might make my markers think that i haven't written it all myself, which I think tends to be bad, even if what i stole is free domain. They'd probably find out anyway i guess, and i'd fail, but do YOU mind if I copy for mere marks and don't publicize?

Must I even ask if you'll never know?

Oh yeah.. forget i said anything.



point: If I ever get off my arse and post something, it's (k) too. thank or credit bones if you have no reason not to, and you're feeling nice, and if it wont incriminate me, whether or not you used my stuff.

My understanding of kopyleft is that people can feel free to reproduce it in its original form with appropriate publication credit as long as they're not making a profit. Your understanding of stuff posted on forums is actually the exact opposite of reality; anything published on the web is automatically copyrighted to the author, and its existence on the web with a time and date stamp actually could serve as proof that it belongs to them if they decided to sue your plagiarizing ass.

Plagiarism is bullshit and not very nice at all, and IMO plagiarists are scum. If you can't come up with your own thoughts at least have the courtesy not to claim other people's as your own. Also, quoting or citing people in your school papers is completely acceptable academically, but if you're really weak/lazy enough to plagiarize from the web, be prepared to fail, because a lot of the professors I know have taken to googling portions of student papers to make sure they're original.

"normal" copyright, as opposed to what? :)

unless explicitly stated otherwise,
a work is automatically copyrighted when it is a novel idea and manifested in a non-volatile medium (like a web-forum, as opposed to your head). no need to even say (c).

having copyright to something means the exclusive right to:
- copy the work
- publish the work

that's pretty much it. no more no less.

everything else is just fancy sparkles.

after creating the work, you can add a license to it, pretty much changing anything pertaining to the copyright by stating "i release this work into the public domain" or "this work is released under Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/) license"

if you think you have the right to do so, it's not stealing, IMO.

but you probably don't have the right to do so.

the term you're thinking of is "public domain" by the way.

there is another right called "makers right" (or something, at least in the netherlands) btw, which means you cannot claim you made the work if you didn't do so. this is an untransferable right, and yes, it also pertains to ghostwriters (except they're of course free to keep their mouths shut about it).

Creative Commons is pretty much the direct outcome of Kopyleft, the Open Source movement et al.  Its a nifty system, and I like it.

Also, this reminds me, I must finish The Pirate's Dilemma and get on with my essays on copyright, intellectual property etc.
Title: Re: Kopyleft Authors
Post by: bones on August 14, 2008, 03:04:25 am
thanks for the info guys

i was talking more about creative writing than essays. even still, my creative writing tutor doesn't care if ideas are stolen, just as long as you write your own piece. he's always warning us to be careful what we give away in class, cuz writers (even he) will steal ideas without a second thought.

was also gonna ask if meme bombs are assumed kopyleft, but i just did an essay on (Australian) copyright and found slogans cannot be copyrighted, and can only be trademarked in certain situations. meme bombs are often just slogans, and are all obviously intended to be spread as far as possible as quickly as possible anyway, hence the name.

there is no way im gonna copy and paste someone elses work and call it my own, in that sense i agree with you, Nigel: plagiarists are scum. clearly this would be stupid and one could expect fail. text is copyright tho, ideas are free.

i disagree with many copyright laws though. I am certainly all for freedom as far as data and information. music should be heard, films and shows seen, books read, and unless you really need a hard copy, it doesn't cost anything substantial. the people here and all over teh inertnets steal and edit copyrighted pics and footage for their own amusement, and i see no reason why we shouldn't be able to duplicate stuff. you can always borrow from libraries and photocopy pages, well torrents waste fewer resources. Lars & Fred vs. Napster, i know who's side im on.

what percentage of musicians/writers/artists/filmmakers etc. throughout history really brought something groundbreakingly unique to the table, do you think? most have just 'copied', imo. ask lars & fred for more informed opinions.

found http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyleft which answers my original question: you can use copyleft to relinquish sombunall copyright rights, so you can demand credit. seems very obvious to me now.
PFTH! they have the backwards 'c' in a circle instead of a 'k'. apparently the PD only had 'all rights reversed', but 'copyleft' wasn't coined til '75, so the 'k' in a circle stood for 'kallisti', not for kopyleft?
also im pretty sure you can profit on kopyleft stuff :cn: (who printed my new hardcover PD?), you just have to make whatever you use it for kopyleft in itself, so you cant claim to own copyright over something free just because you used it.


i mainly want to create music, and i wont be releasing my music as kopyleft until im satisfied with it. I like to think my music is cool and different sounding, i just want to experiment with lyrical styles and themes, and i am really interested in using meme bombs, and ideas and themes of many writings i've seen on this forum. I'm just basically shit at writing poetry.  :sad: . im gonna make some animated music clips for assignments this semester, but i'd like to release them after, so i want to make sure there's no infringements.

so sorry tldr, i crap on...

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.
Slight correction:  My works are Kopyleft for everyone except for Loveshade.  :|

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? ;-)

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?

I've always meant Public Domain.

One of my favorite descriptions is from the "No License" description at uncyclopedia:

Quote
Licensed under absolutely nothing. Have a fucking field day. Abuse this for your own sick pleasures.    
I am content releasing my work completely to the public without conservative, territorial, and possessive need to claim some sort of stake in it. I do not need thousands of cleverly written loophole-"some rights reserved" licenses, nor do I need to debate about the superiority of any of them, rather, I toss the entire equation out the window and render it effectively useless. I fully realise that a man in El Salvador could profit wildly from my efforts and gain the millions of dollars I never did, and could theoretically hunt down every copy and burn it, leaving him as the sole distributor; however, this does not offend me, rather, I allow all to be shared, taking the risk and fully knowing the potential repercussions, rather than let the menace that is copyright conquer yet another soul.



Syn has a really good description of Kopyleft at poee:

http://www.poee.co.uk/k.txt

Quote
All quotes and images from other sources are copyright their respective
owners, but any content original to this document is open
source, unless specifically stated otherwise. Do with it what you like,
but please attribute properly. If you do not agree with the KopyLeft
principle.

KopyLeft ensures the widest dissemination of information. We disagree
with the way that copyright and patent law in the United States and
around the world is unceasingly modified and broadened due to lobbying
by corporations such as Disney and organizations such as the MPAA. It is
ludicrous and inexcusable to equate copyright infringement with terrorism,
as MPAA president Jack Valenti did, and we want no part of that mindset.

Copyright laws were originally created to ensure that creators benefited
from their works, but current laws favor publishers and corporations, not
the individual artist.

Public domain allows works to become integral parts of other works – Alice
in Wonderland is a good example. It has been borrowed from by thousands of
artists for thousands of reasons, and because of this, the story has lived
on and grown with us to the point of becoming archetypical. This is not
possible with works that are still under copyright for obvious reasons.

In the information age, our cultural heritage has gone global.
Scheherazade’s work is almost as much a part of our cultural heritage as
Shakespeare and Carroll. Innovations and enhancements on all of their works
enrich the scope and power of the original to inform our global culture and
provide a familiar framework for the innovator to work within.

For Eris’ sake, even weather data is under strict copyright – the National
Weather Service is limited on what weather data it is allowed to provide free
on its website, since the private sector owns pieces of the information.

I find it especially disappointing that the company that has benefited most
from information in the public domain is leading the fight to keep their
versions of those public domain works under strict copyright. Creators should
certainly profit from their works, but when the creator and their spouse are
dead, what right does a corporation have to the intellectual property,
especially for such an extended amount of time? Obviously, the answer to this
is that they have the right of political influence and graft in the form of
campaign contributions.

Since we can do nothing about these misguided souls, we have KopyLefted our
material. It isn’t Shakespeare, but it’s the best we can do. What do you
think of that, Petreley?

Honestly, I was never dazzled by her brilliance, but I suppose it's more wishful thinking on my part trying to find a way around a copyright law that potentially says that I don't own my own creation.

Cuz fuck that.

Having said that, I completely understand why it is that way, it does make a lot of sense in many ways, but also makes the hippie idealist in me cringe just a little.

Side note about kopylefts: They're kinda pointless unless they're mentioned in the publication.  I haven't made my way through all the Intermittens back-issues yet, but I haven't seen any notices posted.  This thread should be linked to in the table of contents or something.

it might be that our explicit omission of copyright license is our personal method of challenging contemporary IP attitudes


or it might be that we're just lazy  :p


we didn't start talking about IP until right before issue 5 came out, and I think many people are too bored / frustrated with it to care much about explicitly licensing their IM submissions. Most pirates and appropriation artists will skip the license anyway.

In hindsight, i kind of like it [my issues] without all the explicit These Are Your Rights documentations. If, for some asinine reason, anything related to IM reaches court, I think everything is technically (c) the original writer. Which is fine because (K) isn't really a legal license anyway.

Yes, in the US, once something is written it becomes Copyright of the author. They can place it under a specific license, but unless they do, it is (c). In the case of (k) there is no real license, so it is still (c).

Of course, any Discordian that goes to court over Kopyleft should be excommunicated immediately... for at least 23 minutes or 5 if its a really good public spectacle.

Should I ever write something here of merit or value (Ha!) then please feel free to use it as you will, credit me if it's appropriate and what not.  Unless crediting me with a work is likely to land me in prison getting raped by a 7 foot nazi, in THOSE cases, credit the work instead to AKK.

I've never been really comfortable with the whole kopyleft idea.  I mean for one liner memes eh so what but for rants and the like, those should never be reproduced by anyone other than the author without written permission.

Discordian or not it's a simple matter of fucking respect for the author.

Using without permission, especially in a money making effort is stealing and grimey as hell.

just to counterpoint - some of us WANT our work reproduced, reposted, expanded, elaborated on - we like to see our output appear in collages and derivative works and music and whatever else people are inspired to create. We don't care to manage who has permission and who doesn't, some of us don't care about being credited, and many of us don't even care if you can sell it and make a buck or two off it.

Roger's work is copyrighted, that's his choice, and the fact that somebody doesn't want to respect that has no bearing on Kopyleft.

This is a pretty good spot to plug the "kopyleft / creative commons art (http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=18902.0)" thread. If you've got material (visual arts) you want to make available, come let us know. It's also a good spot to look if you're trying to find images for some project.

I'll go on record and state that anything of mine that qualifies as a "rant", or anything that is specifically related to Discordia and/or the culture of this forum (my Doktor threads, for instance), is Kopyleft.

Anything else I write may or may not be, you should probably ask. I'll most likely say yes.

Notable exception: Bring and Brag. If I put something in there without specifically saying it's Kopyleft, assume it isn't. If you really, really want to use it, go ahead and ask, but the answer will probably be no.

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.

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 :)
