The rule about posting copyrighted material is pretty clear and obvious.
But what if you have the copyright? Can you post your own material? I’ve been toying with the idea of both posting and copyrighting some things I’ve written and would like to know the rule about this. From the fine print at the bottom I can see where this might be a problem
Note also that all of your intellectual property is copyrighted the instant you create or transcribe it “in a tangible form that it is perceptible either directly or with the aid of a machine or device.”
Everything you have ever written, provided you can produce proof of being the original author, is protected by U.S. Copyright.
As Colibri pointed out, this notice appears at the bottom of every screen on this website:
So every post on this boards is copyrighted, shared dually by the Chicago Reader and the OP.
