I gots a question Copyright
Posted 13 September 2010 - 09:58 PM
The reason I ask is about my writing contest entries. I have written very little short fiction, and even less that's good enough to be worth submitting to publications. It would be nice if I could use my contest entries for this purpose. But whilst I cannot imagine anyone from TU attempting to claim ownership over them if I did, it does seem very foolish to go around trying to publish stuff I don't actually own. So it would be good to know if I do actually own them.
Anyone know the answer to this or have any thoughts?
Ah, the joys of copyright law and the interwebz.

I'm pretty sure TU has a disclaimer that would state that they do not represent or condone written comments...
Not 100% sure though..

I would think that would answer your question EE.
Publishing an article or story in HFO or in a official newsletter would be different.
As an author you are owner of your works.
Posting your work on TU would be for the benefit of other members enjoyment.
I would think we would need to update and amend that for more clarity and to reflect the changes of the site since its inception.

So the combination is 1-2-3-4-5. That's the stupidest combination I've ever heard in my life! That's the kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!- Dark Helmet; "Live free or die.
