On two different occasions, I have had to respond to authors whose works have been reproduced without permission on Chiff & Fipple related websites. Happily, both cases worked out well. But, I've done some light reading on fair use and copyrights and message boards and it leaves me with the impression that I'm at some risk when we copy the text of articles from other publications and paste them on these forums. So, if you find something copyrighted that you want to share with others, please provide an external link to the piece, rather than cutting and pasting it.

Thanks,

Dale

Where the heck was this thread? :lol: Tyghress, Dale posted this same announcement here:

Maybe you've already found it. There is more discussion. From what Dale said at the other thread, we are not to cut and paste whole articles which are under copyright even if we give the source. He will still get in trouble for that. We can quote little bits from those articles and give the source. Sort of like when you write a paper, you wouldn't include a whole article by someone else in it, but you might quote a couple of sentences and give the source. This is just my interpretation.

Seems like a smart move, I wonder how other boards handle it.

I also wonder what license you have decided to place your own writings under
(your whistle site is a wealth of knowledge)
