[-empyre-] a copyright incident
hi Melinda, et all...
i feel like the black hatter when i do postings
as the emails i send come from the
p.o.v of set copyright rules, rather then what i would
personally think of/ do in a given situation.
re- the moral rights.... of course Melinda,...
there are those who transgress the rules - from
right and left, ... those who generously contribute
research and ideas and are not worried if
someone quotes them without acccreditation as
they believe in freedom of information, etc
and...those who regard it and infringement of
moral right if they have not been
credited....especially i the cases of publushed lists'
logg books. if a person is powerful enough,
switched on, has a chip on their sholder, they can
charge the author for damages. ...
perhaps we live in an over conservative and over
regulated times? why is that?
and something else ...
recently, i had to duplicate slides of an artist's work
i'm curating for a project. the slides where labled
with the artist's name.
upon collection, i was asked to fill in an A4
document with 7 variables on the copyright status
of the slides (including one that said 'i don't have
permission to use this slides), give a proof of
identity and sign the document!!!
I though that was a taking the issue to an extreme
but had to sign the paper otherwise, no duplicates.
protocol, paranoia,politics or protection?
