About Copyrights

I suppose that after five years, I should deal with the issue of copyrights. Unless otherwise specified, all material that I produce here is covered under this copyright, which I am freely copying from xkcd's Randall Munroe:
This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License.

This means that you are free to copy and reuse any of my articles and photos (noncommercially) as long as you tell people where they're from.

That is, you don't need my permission to post these articles and pictures on your website (and hotlinking with is fine); just include a link back to this page. Or you can make Livejournal icons from them, but -- if possible -- put cujo359.blogspot.com in the comment field. You can use them freely (with some kind of link) in not-for-profit publications, and I'm also okay with people reprinting occasional pictures or articles (with clear attribution) in publications like books, blogs, newsletters, and presentations. If you're not sure whether your use is noncommercial, feel free to email me and ask (if you're not sure, it's probably okay).
The short version of that is, if you're using bits of my work in some commercial project, as long as they're only a small and unimportant part of that work, I'm not going to bother you about it. In that case, the work you put into that work is orders of magnitude more than I did, so it's pretty silly of me to claim that you stole my work. If you have any doubts, e-mail me.

You also have fair use rights, of course, which apply to all copyrighted work.

Attribution should be to Cujo359, with either a link to the work, or if that's not possible, a mention of this blog's home address.

For a fuller explanation of what that means, see the Creative Commons 2.5 license summary, and then look at the complete license.
