Copyright "Paradox" - "Challenge and Opportunity"?

Edited by author.
Last edit: 10:36, 22 June 2008

Hi all,

I am uncomfortable with copyright as an "enabler". Here is a suggested alternative.

I'll post my response to the straw dog page Talk page.

Could we add a third situation in the second paragraph:

... unless:

  • the copyright of the work has been handed over to the publisher;

Regarding "cases where the author declares that the work will be released under public domain", I understand that in some parts of Europe, this is not an option. The only way the work can enter the public domain is via copyright expiry.

>>the copyright of the work has been handed over to the publisher;

Change added.

>>Regarding "cases where the author declares that the work will be released under public domain", I understand that in some parts of Europe, this is not an option.

I've included wording in the footnote to indicate it is not universal.

Reference to BBC

Removed it as there is some material released by BBC under the Creative Archive Licence, inspired by Creative Commons, though definitely non-free (NC, no endorsement and UK only).

(i.e. prefer to be generic and avoid confusion with the BBC material which may seem very "open" to people in the UK)

No problem.
