Re: Anthology Thread

Are you referring to the link Lego05 posted recently? If so, I sent him a message earlier today asking for this as well. I agree, this is one of the best posts I have ever come across as far as having a wealth of info in one place. If I hear back from Lego05 prior to someone posting it, I will send it to you.

Hi folks,

I put this together back in January for a friend I was coaching at the time. It is essentially a digest of all the digests, sorted by post category. It's been sitting on my web server since then, and it must have been indexed by google or something because it's been getting a lot of hits. So I might as well post it here since it's already out there... Enjoy.
People are welcome to add to this if they wish—here is a link to the original .doc. Edit it, save as both .doc and .htm, and email both files to me at azcire+2p2@gmail.com. If you have any other comments or suggestions, you can post those in the anthology thread.
I hope you find this useful.

Re: Anthology Thread

TYVM

I just had to edit this post to add, this is exactly why I love this forum, ask and you shall receive. The information in the anthology thread tops any book on the market and contains information that would take decades to get anywhere else. Thank you to all of the posters in this thread and thank you to all of you who help us beginners with your knowledge. It is really unbelievable that you are all willing to share your knowledge so freely. I hope some day I can repay the favor (or at the leat, pay it forward), just when i think I get it, I am reminded, I don't.

i think in another forum one time mason said this should not be up and was probably against copyright. wonder if that had something to do with it.

yeah, sounded odd to me. maybe because it was hosted on a site other than 2p2? although all the links obv were directly to the site. idk. looking for the exact post, but not finding it yet. also, my post was just in reference to OP's mention of its removal.

Re: Anthology Thread

Mason did say that:

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...0&postcount=22

I am not a lawyer but I expect Mason is wrong. There've been some strange legal actions involving linking the last several years, but creating an index of links is almost certainly "fair use" (if even affected by copyright at all). If not, then Digg, Slashdot, Delicious, Yahoo, Google, etc are in big trouble...

Not surprising if Pr0crast decided he didn't want a fight though.

I'm 99% sure that material posted in a public forum is not copyrighted and linking to it and creating an index is not illegal. If I ever actually saw something really come to meaning from this I'd be 100% content stabbing the moron who sought legal action.

I have anger issues.

There's definitely more to it than that.

First realize that it's not a crime to hyperlink to the URL of a web page, with or without the author's knowledge that you're posting the link... servers don't just decide to host pages on the web on their own, they are specifically set up for this (i.e., no authentication required, any IP can connect via HTTP and receive the page via a GET request). If you voluntarily have it up for the world to see, you can't sue someone for telling the world the URL (but if it's interesting, let's hope you have bandwidth). There is also limited original content copyright on the internet (a drawing I make and save as a JPEG is considered my work, not the JPEG groups for owning the format, or microsoft's for writing the software that encoded it, or Photobucket's for hosting it).

But copyright issues can't be directly imposed upon the forums, because forums typically have end user license agreements when you sign up. You may have agreed, in creating an account on many websites that allow users to broadcast or share original content (from youtube to 2p2), to one of several things, which could range from giving the site complete ownership and effective copyright of your content (rare if not unheard of), to giving the site control over your creation as they deem fit to do (including hosting, not hosting, archiving, or deleting), while still recognizing it as something you made. The fine print's a ***** if you forget about it.

Assuming at one time or another you make content publicly available to anyone who wants to see it (and this goes beyond the scope of just the internet), fair use comes into play. Archival and indexing services are in this category. Google creates a cache/snapshot of almost every web page on the internet, continuously, as it crawls, and sites like the Internet Archive are dedicated to presenting websites as they looked at various times in history. Both of these processes involve the respective company downloading and storing millions of files with no "asking permission".

So yes, anyone can link to any thread in the archives. However, copyright issues occur if any of that content is misattributed, or edited by someone else taking their own initiative... I am not well versed in this, but if 2p2 wants to put these threads in a book and publish/sell it for profit, you can see why the permission of every single post author whose work was used would be required.
