and reuse of material
following statements apply to all the writing found on this web site. This
includes all URLs which begin with home.earthlink.net/~moriam.
(but not all) of the pages on this site are copyright. Please see the
"page information" at the top of each page for the copyright statement
for each page.
statements apply only to the text on my pages themselves, and NOT to the
text at other web sites, where LINKS from my pages will lead you.
share this site with anyone and everyone. Kindly do so by referring to
the URLs ONLY. It is okay to post URLs to this site, and to post URLs
to pages on this site.
This does not require permission. If you
need help with the URLs, ask me.
text may not be copied without explicit permission. This means you
must ask me if you want to copy anything. You also have to ask me if
you want to translate, alter, or otherwise reuse/incorporate anything.
Copyright laws exist to protect the work and intent of authors and creators.
I consider it disrespectful of my work (both my labor and my intelligence)
if you to copy my work without my explicit permission, and I will act accordingly.
to what you may have heard, copyright laws apply:
materials on the internet
if your reuse is for non-profit purposes and you are not charging/selling
or not you are informed about copyright laws
following describes some of my attitudes about reuse. These statements
are not legally binding, but are to give you a general idea of what my
outlook is. These statements do not free others from the obligation to
obtain permission for reuse of copyright material.
am grateful when people ask for permission to translate pages, or ask for
other assistance with translated versions, because translation will allow
more people access to the information. (Translation does require getting
permission.) I will generally give permission for translation. I
will request that the copyright (if any) and author are listed, along with
(optionally) crediting the translator. I also prefer that the translated
version then remain in one location, and that I either host it or post
links to it.
There is a great advantage in
having information in ONE location (not duplicated), and then having links
to that location. The advantage is when updates are made to that ONE location,
these updates take affect everywhere at once. Nothing is left behind
with the "old version". This is one of the reasons I have a preference
for not duplicating writing.
IF there is a good reason that
the text, where it is now, cannot fulfill the purpose you are trying to
achieve, AND if I agree in general with what you are doing, I may
be willing to give you permission to reproduce some of my writing.
It may also be possible for me to make minor changes to my writing to allow
you to hyperlink to exactly the text you want. Talk to me about what you
are wanting to do.

REMOVAL OF LINKS
not my intent to use material in ways that the author of the material objects
to, whether or not my use is legally permitted. If I have
linked to posts which you wrote, and you wish these posts to be lost in
the passage of time (rather than highlighted by my linking to them), please
write and let me know. While I believe that posting links to messages
is perfectly legal, I also respect your wishes. Just ask.
