Hi John,

You common sense on the issue of ownership is flawed.

First, just because you post to a public forum doesn't mean you lose
copyright to your words. For instance no one can put together a
collection of my posts and sell or even give them away without my

Second, only the owner of the list has the right to provide an archive
for List. He is in effect the publisher. And even he does not have the
right to publish an archive in any form other than complete. He has no
more right than anyone else to publish in another form without the
permission of the author(s). The Best of the Flasher List would have to
have th permission of anyone quoted.

The fact that the forum is free has a bearing only in court when
compensation is determined.

The knowledge derived and the facts can not be copyrighted, but the
words, if unique are protected. Of course, anyone has the right to quote
small passages. And you can keep copies for your own use, but you have
no more right to redistribute these posts than you have to give away
copies of books or software.

Unless you sign your rights away -- you words, graphics and code are
yours if they are unique and put in any tangible form.
