(ThoughtStorms) IntellectualPropertyPolicyOfThisWiki

Anything I (PhilJones) write here is in the Public Domain. ie, you can link to it, quote it, copy the whole damned thing verbatim into your wiki, copy it into a PDF document and sell it. Whatever.

I assume anything you contribute is the same.

Where I've quoted third parties I assume that the quotes are small enough to count as fair use, and are therefore also in the public domain. If you think I'm wrong about this, you can remove the quote yourself and please correct me by telling me on this page.


There are currently some exceptions to this rule where I've taken the risk of quoting longer articles. Currently :

In these cases I believe that the authors wouldn't object to those articles being reproduced here. If they do, they can, of course, remove them themselves. However, don't assume that because these articles are here they are pubic domain. You may not have the freedom to reuse them.

Hi Phil! I want to suggest the simple license that our lab MinciuSodas has developed which is "public domain except as noted" http://www.primarilypublicdomain.org/wiki/ which I think fits for your policy. If it does, please let me know! AndriusKulikauskas

: thanks. Looks right. Though I am NotALawyer so can't tell whether it would stand up in court. -- PhilJones
