He wrote, he actually typed this in for public consumption? “I swear, this is my very *last* commentary on copyrights, licensing, etc.” Those are brave words on a subject where not everyone has commented on the matter(s) yet. Hold those thoughts, I have something else to talk about first.
61,728 words are my absolute, final count of words for (oh gawd here I go again) NaN oWriMo or NaNoWriMo editing of my First First Draft “novel”. And change the word editing in that prior sentence to typing or blurting or fill in the bland blank substitute you have for it. In any case, I have completed my first draft of what I am referring to as First First Draft which no matter what I wrote there will not, in the large part show up in a novel. But it is DONE.
So about copyrights, licensing or the whatnot. First, my disclaimers. I have many works under a license here.
As an example: https://saunter.us/my_typed_page OR https://www.michaelrpdx.com/mwiki/index.php My tangling with this issue goes back to 1994. I thought a lot about licensing a lot. It was the kind of thing you thought about when you were a nerd that hung around with nerds and we would argue about these, and many other, issues.
Mine are licensing under the CC-BY-SA-.0 which to save you looking it up is Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International What a mouthful. And after years of thinking on this matter and joining through the different licenses, I have come to the conclusion: it does not matter. If you have a lot of money burning holes in your garments then fine, get it licensing get a bunch of people to monitor the everywhere to find violations, and then send out search and desist letters the spend the money to put the fires out. And while you are at it, pat yourself on the back for keeping people employed.
Otherwise, a nice stern letter will do you as much good. Do not expect a post from me tomorrow, After a month of typing way too much on a first draft novel, and it was a first for me, I will take the day of writing off.
