Creative Commons licencing

Postby Fox » 31 Jul 2006, 11:31

I'm cross-posting this all the creative sections to which it applies.

This post originally appeared in the Eistefodd section, but it occurs to me that it would be beneficial on a wider basis.
Can I suggest that people publishing any sort of creative work on this board look into the "Creative Commons" licencing scheme? It allows for the widest range of licencing of a work, basically you define yourself how you will allow your work to be used.

It still protects your intelletual property rights, but can allow people to copy and use your work freely (so long as they credit it and apply the same creative commons notice to it.... for example).

In any case, have a look at http://creativecommons.org  They have sections for images, text, video, audio, etc.

I'm going to be looking into applying it to my poetry.

Bumping this up and making it a sticky. This is great advice for anyone worried about posting here because of worries about copyright issues.
Light,

I've known about this for a while.
It's good to spread the word. :)
