Do we need to add something equivalent to the Creative Commons clause: "Your fair dealing and other rights are in no way affected ...."? The draft Creative Commons deed ("wrapper") includes this. Does this cover "moral rights" or are those already covered in the "BSD-like" wording?

Comment Kim Tucker 22:51, 1 July 2012 (UTC): Wikipedia on Moral rights (copyright law): While the United States became a signatory to the convention in 1989,[1] it still does not completely recognize moral rights as part of copyright law, but rather as part of other bodies of law, such as defamation or unfair competition.[2]

This separation seems sensible - Kim Tucker 22:51, 1 July 2012 (UTC).

Perhaps with LPL the author/artist is waiving the right to attribution? At least in some circumstances. But does this apply when the resource is being mixed by kids for fun? - Kim Tucker 22:54, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
