I know what you post of these boards becomes the property of the Straight Dope. That has been alluded to, and even joked about, for some time now.
But I have just one question: Just how "copyrighted" are these boards?
Allow me to elaborate. I post it, and it becomes the property of the SDMB. But they are still my words, aren’t they? I mean, I can still post them on other boards I am a member of, can’t I?
And what about if it is something I posted that I also want to share with my friends and family? A recipe, for example. Can I copy it, and xerox it off, for my friends/family? It would just be for them. I wouldn’t be selling it to a book company, or news paper, or something like that, of course.
Please answer this question right away. It really has me flustered.
