This is an excellent article.

Summary:  Just because it's a law, doesn't mean it is not (or cannot be) used abusively.

 

I strongly disagree with the "copyright is bad" notion.   If you put in the work to create something, you have the right to expect the credit for it.

--the question is, can you forbid other people from quoting you (or maybe mentioning your name)?

no you cannot, but you can sue them for slander.

Yeah.  Copyright is getting way out of hand. It should be set that way the founding fathers set it, 14 years until it is public domain.

Wow!

Great aritcle. I hate most copyright laws, especially the ones perverted to serve the interest of groups trying to hide the truth, let alone the ones perverted to prevent fair use laws.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think Quinn Norton is a total babe?

Semper Leporid!

Great.  We finally get a female who will show her face around here regularly, and you're gonna go scariing her off.

Brilliant.

 

Great article though Quinn.
