Freethought Forum Post Ownership and Editing Policy

Introduction | Forum Rules | Privacy Policy | Editing Policy | Ignore Features | Other Features | Glossary | History | Accounting | Thanks


Any post or article published on the Freethought Forum is the exclusive copyright of the author. The Freethought Forum can neither reproduce elsewhere nor seek to profit from any such writing without the explicit consent of the author.

The Freethought Forum does, however, own the work within its context. Although there is no case law to speak of on the subject, we consider the unique database of the FF a collective work - as defined by Title 17 of the United States Code - to which the FF owners/administrators hold the exclusive copyright.

You can repost your writing anywhere you wish, in other words, and the FF has no right to reprint or profit from it without your permission. You cannot, however, publish the work of other people in whole or in part, or remove, redact or in any other way significantly alter your contributions to the collective work without our permission.

To maintain the integrity of the compilation, we have therefore chosen (somewhat arbitrarily, granted) to set a 24 hour time limit on post editing on the grounds that any changes made to a post after a day has passed could materially damage the collective work. We believe the dynamic, interactive nature of thread development requires this protection as a mutilated thread is truly painful to behold. A tag noting the edit and, if the poster chooses to fill in the appropriate field, the reason for said edit will denote any changes made more than 10 minutes after the initial posting time.

If any member wishes to make a change past the 24 hour window, she is more than welcome to contact either administrator privately via PM or post a thread in Forum Administration. If the modification does not substantively alter the content of her post or inject chaos into the sense of the thread, we will be glad to make it for her.
