Intellectual Unproperty or Transmedial Xerocracy can be Fun
Please Pirate is an alternative to copyright. It goes like this:
I, Peter Fein, the author of the work “Please Pirate Explained Blog Post” (2010), irrevocably renounce all current and future legal rights to the work in any medium whatsoever.
I stand behind the merit of the work, but disclaim all liability for it under law.
I encourage you, the audience, to share, copy, distribute, perform, remix, mash up, interpret, excerpt, translate, and otherwise enjoy and use the work as you will.
I request that you acknowledge my authorship.
Clear and simple. Imagine if I tried to include the EIGHTEEN KILOBYTE Creative Commons license instead? Horrors. I’d lose the few readers I imagine I have.
