Question, Dave K.

by J. Vega / June 29, 2004 11:06 PM PDT

Question, Dave K., relating to copyright. Did you read the entire short thread before you posted saying that a certain poster was "ridiculous" for pointing out something legal, or did you just automatically respond to that name in a contradictory manner?
Note to late risers: That thread suddenly went away.

When Mary posted her modalert requesting that the THREAD be deleted due to copyright issues, she included the link to the original post in that modalert. After reading THAT post and seeing that IT only contained a LINK, it was determined that no copyright issue was involved.....she had followed the rules in THAT post.

There wasn't a knee-jerk reaction, J, to a poster....in fact, I also had decided that there wasn't a copyright issue and ignored the request to pull the thread based on that original modalert.

It wasn't until three posts further down that the copyright issue came into play where Mary actually posted the whole article....believing that she was free to do so because of the wording at the site, not realizing at first that the wording specifically said "feel free to leave a LINK" (my words).

Actually, the deletion should have started at THAT post and any following it, rather than the ORIGINAL and include the whole thread.

Hi, Toni.

>>Actually, the deletion should have started at THAT post and any following it, rather than the ORIGINAL and include the whole thread.<<
And that's what I did -- someone else must have honored Mary K's request.

My point was, Tony...

Tony, I asked that question because I was online and here just after Dave posted that post that used that word. In the short time it took me to respond to Dave's post, the thread was deleted. It was deleted while I was typing that response. Then I assume that some other Mod deleted it and just happened to do so in the brief time after Dave posted and I finished typing up a reply just after that.

J, Don't blame DK. Clay pointed out my error and I requested it removed.There is no problem there. When I make a mistake, I admit it.

Why don't you repost your link Mary. The root post was fine, it was the transcript that looked to me to violate 'Fair Use'. I think your original post was a good one.

Thanks Clay, But it didn't seem to conjure up much interest anyway. I just thought it was timely for the holiday.

Hi, J.

For the record, here's the message I sent Clay privately (The message you mention was only up for about 5 minutes, so I didn't originally post the apology on the board because I didn't think anyone but Clay would have noticed the message in that time, and the messages referenced would be gone):

Hi, Clay.

Ah, sorry! That's not the message MK linked HER
ModAlert to (it was linked to the root message,
containing only the link) -- you are correct about the
transcript. I'll take it down, along with the
copyright subthread.

I do the best I can, J -- I've never claimed to be perfect!

Dave, let's just forget it. It was early, and I just happened to be hanging about as usual, taking in coffee and chickory in preparation for another "Great Escape" from my room. NBD, No Big Deal.
