Licensing my work

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007 at 9:49 pm

A few days ago I finally got around to doing something about the copyright infringement I discovered many weeks ago: I asked the Commons Help desk and got a helpful response. However, before I uploaded my images to Wikimedia Commons under a Creative Commons license I wanted to actually have this site under the same license.

A few additions (HTML head, blog sidebar, page footer) later and I am now stating that all of the content on this blog and in my computer collection is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License.

I also jumped over to my flickr account and set the license for all of my existing and future photos.

I think my next step will be to tag the photos in the collection, initially via the "Copyright" Exif metadata tag and then via XMP. Once I figure out what that is.

Scratch that. My immediate next step is to address the copyright infringement…

  1. I am very sorry to hear about the infringement, if you want me to have a look at it and see what might be your options, I’ll gladly do so.

    Hope that it goes well for you!

  2. Thanks for the offer, but I believe that I have it under control.

    The actual infringement didn’t worry me too much, it was the incorrect attribution that annoyed me and the admins over at Wikimedia Commons have been helpful regarding that.
