Comments and Copyright

All posts are copyright by me, Timothy Green, as of the date of publication of each post. If you want to republish them, ask.

All comments on this blog are copyright by their respective authors. If you comment here, you own the copyright of that comment, and you are therefore free to publish that comment elsewhere, to release that comment under the Creative Commons license of your choice, or whatever.

In posting your comment on this blog, you grant me a perpetual non-exclusive license to use the material in your comment in any way I may reasonably choose on a free-of-charge basis in any media throughout the world. Any contributions you make may be moderated, which means they may be reviewed, edited and/or removed. You grant me the right to change or edit the materials in your contribution for operational and editorial reasons.


Basically, that means that once you’ve posted something here it’s still yours, and you can do whatever you want with it, but you’ve also granted me a license to do whatever I want with it (including the right to do nothing with it by refusing to publish it, or the right to publish it in modified form). Some license of that sort needs to exist for me to publish your comment on my blog at all. Generally, that’s just assumed, but this can get messy, so I wanted to be explicit about it. Also, I’m a licensing geek. I read software licenses for the fun of it. I read all sorts of weird things for the fun of it.
