    I'm not a lawyer, but I do play one on the internet. IIRC the way the copyright laws work in the U.S., anything anyone writes is copyright the moment they write it. You don't have to put the little (c) symbol on it or take any special action, it's automatic. By default, the person who wrote it owns the copyright unless they they have either explicitly assigned it to someone else, or it falls under certain exceptions like a work for hire. So everyone owns everything they write here.

    If everyone here own the copyright on their posts, could the guy who wanted all his posts deleted sue Bumper for copyright infringement? Probably not. A judge would probably decide that by hitting the submit button we're granting Bumper an implied license to distribute our posts.

    Being a librarian brings you into constant contact with copyright laws and regulations. In order for something original to be copyrighted it only needs to be "fixed in a tangible medium of expression." It does not have to be readable without aid. If it is readable with the assistance of a mechanical device it is "fixed in a tangible medium of expression." There are several ways to be able to use copyrighted material. The "fair use" doctrine has several ways that copyrighted materials can be used in academic settings. Quotes with attribution, use in classrooms when copies cannot be purchases, etc are examples of "fair use."

    By posting to this board you have given the board owner(s) the right to use your copyrighted material. By putting it in a publicly accessible format you have also given others the right to quote it or link it to other sites. If it is your desire that no one be able to use your writings do not post them. Putting a copyright statement on your posts would not change the status of posted material since it is copyrighted as soon as it is put into a tangible format. You may not withdraw the right for the board to publish your writing if you posted them. If someone posted an article that you had written and posted on your own website it would be both possible and permissible to request a board owner to remove the material. The board owner would then remove the material, but would be perfectly within his rights to post a link in its place.

    Recognize that copyright and copyright law has been in flux for the past 10 years or so and that things change in copyright frequently now. What was legal last year may not be next month. Answers to copyright questions about real content are best take up with your legal adviser.

    The reason I was asking was because if someone came up with a real good 60 second PSA script and I decided to put the money into getting it made in to a professional PSA would that be legal or not.

    IMO that would be between you and the author, the forum is just the outlet for the idea.

    Turn the tables, as a test. Imagine you had spent an inordinate amount of time crafting a very well-phrased piece on something. Then, you saw it published nationally in a trade rag. Would you feel good or bad, about that? Would someone else feel good or bad about that, had the same happened to him/her?

    That's why copyright laws exist: to protect the authors of phraseology. Ask the author. Get a simple approval in writing, and then you're good to go.

    Timmy,
    While most people here are very understanding, it's a matter of being polite and courteous (like asking if you can borrow someone's golf clubs.. they are alright if you use it as long as you don't abuse it and you understand where it came from).

    In the world of writing I have learned that as long as you ask, writers (or the original idealists) are way more than likely will say yes. If you steal, they are more than likely going to come after you with a large stick.

    I would make sure that everyone was fine with me using their idea if I used it for something.
