in reply to Copyright of code on Perlmonks

It is my understanding that via the Berne convention on copyrights that the author always owns the copyright, unless he gives it away, so the employer you mention should rightfully be conserned with using copyrighted material, even if it is a vanishingly small probability that anything bad would happen. Anyway, it wouldn't hurt to put a copyright statement on the site, but it would have to be crafted so that individual monks could opt out, presumably with their own statement. I guess it's time to call the lawyers :-/
