    Are post property of CC?

    I have looked at the forum rules but I do not see anything that says anything like: All post made on this forum are the property of CombatCarry.com or anything like that.

    So when someone makes a great post is it public domain, does it belong to combatcarry.com or is it property of the poster?

    I understand that I can not post anything that is copyrighted but what about the other way around?

    I believe, although I am not certain, that should you post something on this website that you own the content of the post as intellectual property. If someone quotes the post (without a link), the original poster and the source (the forum) should be quoted. I believe identifying the forum as the source is more of a courtesy, where identifying the original poster would be more of a legal requirement, if there even is one. I don't believe you can "take" intellectual property and just post it or publish it elsewhere as yours. In the case of this forum, I don't care one way or another. Some people get pretty bent out of shape when they don't get credited for their "works".

    We have had at least one person that put a copyright symbol in his signature line. I asked that he remove it rather than me revoking his membership. The symbol was removed. We also had another member that got mad and asked that his account be deleted along with all of his posts, since he claimed ownership of them. I refused to do either. Those wanting to leave basically have their account frozen permanently, without being deleted since deleting accounts sorta makes a shambles out of the forum. (If someone has a concern about something they posted here, they can contact me and I will work with them to correct a problem, on a case by case basis). Similar to an author and a publishing company, you can quite a publisher but publisher won't recall all of the books that were published.

    The bottom line is credit someone else's work (as there may be a legal implication) , credit the forum as the source if you want to (or not) and be very careful about what you post.

    Note: This is not in any way a legal opinion, simply my take on it, or really, in my opinion what is right....

    Let's see, 2,245 posts at .50 a piece, you'd make better than a thousand dollars (providing not every single one of your posts will be bought).

    That's a start!

    I have a low post count. I'd have to charge a dollar a post to get a new gun.

    Just think, Chris, if you charged a dollar a post.. you could put a down payment on a new house..lol

    Can we sell our stars too? Those should be lots, depending on which star it is. I wonder if Ebay will restrict them too.

    Oh, wait... No, Ebay will accept your stars as long as it's only half a star. You'll have to dismantle it and sell it in pieces. The frame of the star is the only thing that is unacceptable because the frame has the serial number on it.

    Just a couple, I think my bubble is pegged at one end, which end you ask, depends on which side you are standing.

    I'd be happy to get a buck for the whole lot.
