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.
