It’s my anniversary today! And my first thought when I realized it was “Shit! Only five more days to finish Conjecture!!”
We’re celebrating Friend Meet Friend day by chatting here: http://tinychat.com/9p7bu
Come join if you want!
Shortly, I will be sending out messages introducing several people.
But for those who want to do things a little faster…Join me in this tinychat chatroom and make friends all on your own! I’ll be hanging out there for most of the day, so at the very least you can be friends with me! But we’ll see who shows up :)
Come join the chat! I’m actually being self-indulgent and chatting until I have to get going on my kid’s school day …
"Most welcome, bondage! For thou art a way, I think, to liberty."
Ooh! I may have to steal that for an EF title some day!
Maybe they could track the IP address of the original post. But even if you can prove you posted it first, you had no copyright clause on it, so the person who posted it second technically didn’t violate the law, even if they did something unethical.
Well, from what I understand, intellectual property doesn’t have to be officially copyrighted. I mean, you can put a copyright notice on something and that’s binding, even if you don’t register an actual legal copyright somewhere. I’m not too worried about that part. But it is important that people are protected from having their work “sanitized” and published by someone else!
Thanks, everyone, for enlightening me about this!
