Copyright, licence, etc

October 2nd, 2006 at 10:12am

Wow, this looks like an exciting morning, blog notices everywhere…

Anyway, I’ve been thinking about the copyright on this website, and have decided to ammend it.

For this website, excluding the Samuel’s Persiflage podcast, the following licence applies:

  • For content created by me:
    This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.5 License, in other words:

        • You may not use this work for commercial purposes.
        • If you alter, transform, or build upon this work, you may distribute the resulting work only under a license identical to this one.
        • For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license terms of this work.
        • Any of these conditions can be waived if you get permission from the copyright holder.
        • Your fair use and other rights are in no way affected by the above.

  • For content contributed by people other than myself (eg comments):
    The same licence applies, except that you share ownership of that work with me on this website.

    Whilst on this topic of copyright, etc….. May I suggest the introduction of a colour-coded rating for regular posters on Samuel’s Blog.

    For example – Posters who have a trustworthy track record on posting ( i.e. – they won’t stab you in the back ) could be awarded a GOLD rating .

    Next in line would be a SILVER rating, followed by a BRONZE.

    Dubious and erratic posters would be given a TIN rating.

    Interesting idea, the problem is in the implementation…but it’s something I might pursue further down the track.

  • 3. John_Barnes  |  October 3rd, 2006 at 9:42 pm

    Ok, have a think about it.

    John, I must say that comment is “off topic”.

    And who would adjudicate this “poster Arpartheid”?

    Let me guess … you?

    I can’t see what your inane, off topic, idea has to do with copyright, or anything else Samuel mentioned.

    *Disclaimer: I am not criticising John, or any of his many alter-egos, personally, I am merely replying to his sentiments regarding this post, and would have reacted in precisely in the same way to any other contributor to this blog.

    Whatever you say doesn’t cut any ice with me Loki . You’re just another faceless nobody hiding behind a keyboard.

  • 6. Loki  |  October 4th, 2006 at 7:49 am

    And I don’t have the keyboard up to my face – that would be a very odd way to use it!

    I think the ratings system is an excellent idea. Can I put my name down in advance for tin.

    Might I also suggest a different ratings system.

    Dubious and erratic: Chipboard

    Next in line: Pine

    Proven track record: Rich mahogany.
