A question of copyright

I uploaded one of my articles to this blog yesterday, prompting Derek to ask: “Would I be able to pass that onto some people at work, or would that infringe on the copyright?” The answer is, of course, go right ahead.

The whole point of sticking things up on the net is so that people can read them, email them, get irate about them or whatever, but to make things clear I’ve updated the copyright notice on this weblog to make it a Creative Commons licence. That explicitly states that you’re free to copy, distribute or build upon stuff I’ve done provided it isn’t for commercial use (ie, provided you’re not making money from my work without giving me a cut).
