Threading: RE: [BOAI] Copyright (or left) issues, a question from arun AT mssrf.res.in
      • This Message

I recently faced this issue...
I was browsing on internet and I found this e-on-line library selling my
political analysis articles. Anyone how wants to red this articles would
have to pay around 3 euros for each one. I'm gainning nothing. I publised
this articles for free in some cultural maggazine, but it was my choise.
I was angry because nobody asked me how I feel about this ideea......

Best whishes,

Ciprian Ciucu

Yes! The issue raised its head throughout the Copyright discussion forum
more than 12 month ago. As an online content producer, developer, writer
etc, I faced the issue as early as 1995. The bottom line is the first
simple question you have to ask yourself - what and how much are you
prepared to give away for nothing. The second simple question is - who
else owns a stake, or can in some way make a claim on your intellectually
rights or property ( the two things are distinct and separate ) "Note in
most cases your University employer claims that the wage paid to you,
delivers an unchallengeable ownership claim and a subsequent right to
commercialise the fruits of your labour in any way it sees fit. (???) The
third simple question is - what are your own intentions - Journal articles
are often delivered for academic prestige, peer recognition and related
reasons of academic advancement, or even for the less selfless among us -
the sheer delight in furthering human knowledge. So what is it you wish to
achieve and why? Regards Siegfried Angerer Director SEA Pty Ltd (R&D
