Notice to commenters

On February 1, 2011, a new copyright policy was adopted for this blog where all text is in the Public Domain (CC0).

The reason is simple: I want anyone to be able to remix, rebuild and be inspired by any text on this site. When I say that copyright is an obstacle, it makes no sense whatsoever to apply it to the site discussing its properties as an obstacle.

There is currently a transition period. Starting February 1, all new comments are placed in the public domain. On February 4, all previous commenters were informed of the new policy and given notice until February 25 if they preferred their comment deleted to having it in the public domain.

For all of February, 2011, the blog posts are in the public domain and all new comments are in the public domain. Starting March 1, 2011, all text on this site will be in the public domain except for where quotes are clearly attributed to a copyrighted work.

When commenting or writing guest posts, you are therefore placing your comment in the public domain.

This notice was sent on February 4, 2011:

Skicka i så fall mailet från den adress som hör ihop med kommentaren eller kommentarerna ifråga.

Vänliga hälsningar och trevlig helg,
