Copyright abuse

I believe in sharing. Until recently, I offered all my articles under a Creative Commons copyright, which let anyone use any number of articles for any purpose as long as they included attribution crediting the source back to my site.

Unfortunately, a few jerks took advantage of that and just duplicated thousands of my articles. That's not what I intended at all and I don't like it. I don't mind someone taking a few articles, but I really don't like someone just grabbing everything they see or close to it.

So, I've changed my policy. I'm not going to allow that any longer. I'm leaving old articles as they were, but everything from this point on is NOT free to copy or use without permission. All new articles on all sites are copyrighted and may not be used with specific written permission.

Too bad that a few lazy jerks have to spoil things for everyone.

Technology is both a tool for helping humans and for destroying them. This is the paradox of our times which we're compelled to face (Frank Herbert).
