UDWiki talk:Copyrights

From The Urban Dead Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Have gone with the default assumption that people posting their content here don't want it blindly reproduced anywhere and everywhere (and I imagine this is the default copyright status anyway, that a single user thinking it's funny to post "we don't need no stinking copyrights" is legally meaningless), but feel free to thrash this out as a policy discussion or something. --Kevan 14:15, 30 August 2006 (BST)

Hmm. Maybe it should include something about not posting/uploading copyrighted work without permission. Though enforcing that might be bit of a nightmare. --Brizth M T 14:53, 30 August 2006 (BST)
All upload and edit pages have boldface warnings against posting copyrighted work, and always have. --Kevan 15:18, 30 August 2006 (BST)

So, uh?

Since this is a wiki, and according to this page all content on the UDWiki is owned by individuals who created it, then who owns what content here? --Daranz.t.mod janitor.W(M)^∞. 21:46, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Some sort of copyleft policy, like Creative Commons might make more sense here. Blackboard 23:35, 6 August 2008 (BST)
Simple, if one doesn't want derivative works created from one contributions, and doesn't want to share copyright of articles and project pages with other users, one way as well submit it to one's own website, or to bolgspot. --Myrtonos C @ 01:07, 23 September 2013 (BST)

Trademark vs. Copyright

While the policy here explicitly covers copyright and implicitly includes trademark, shouldn't it just say "intellectual property" or specify that neither trademarks nor copyrighted material should be used on the wiki? The two terms have different - even if related - definitions.--Kali Magdalene 09:06, 10 July 2007 (BST)
