Unless otherwise specified, all articles posted to this blog are copyrighted by Michael Chermside as of the official date of posting. I am a firm believer in fair use: I acknowledge your right to make incidental copies, quote excerpts, parody my work, and so forth. (Of course, you had these rights anyway; I am just acknowledging that fact.) If you want to do something more drastic, such as publishing an article in a Creative-Commons licensed collection, posting it elsewhere, or making a profit off of selling it, then please contact me: I would be happy to make other arrangements.
Comments posted to this blog are copyrighted by the author of the comment (even if I don’t know who that is). By posting, the author grants me a right to make copies as needed to maintain the blog (backups, duplicate sites, moving the blog to a different location or medium, anything like that). I may also make minor edits for readability (I’ve never done so, but perhaps someday I will). And, of course, making a comment in no way guarantees that the comment will be retained on the blog: your freedom of speech in no way compels me to use MY website to help promote sales of your penis enlarger.
This is also a good place to note the following: The opinions expressed here are the personal opinions of Michael Chermside (except for comments). Content published here is not read or approved by my employer before it is posted and does not necessarily represent the views and opinions of my employer.
