Part of my own intellectual property agreement with the world is that I have none. I encourage people to take and use whatever they want from me. They are free to cite me or not. They are free to plagiarize. They are free to reformat. They are free to use it to make money, to learn from, or throw away. I believe that information wants to be free and that nobody has the right to ensalve it.

That's cool if that's what you want to do.

Should I hire a lawyer to sue?

Even in context it is given as an option you choose not to use. It seems to me the 2 quotes are in serious contradiction with each other. Either people can "take and use whatever they want from me", in which case you reliquish all rights, or you have the option (repulsive to you or not) to sue them for abusing you IP, meaning you HAVE reatined some rights.

btw, thanks for coming out, this thread has been a great read. And whether or not you planned to, you have rejoined the perl community for at least one thread, welcome back!

The thing with this site, even if many don't agree with you...the discussion stays around and many may look @ CGI in a new way because of it.

"Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
