Prove it, 8 simple ways to own your intellectual property!!! Hey, so if you’ve been coming around a while you may remember i did a post about blogging where i recommended as a “tip” that its good to start off with something really flashy to catch people’s eyes and to look the best when showing up abbreviated on link pages. Here i have used the word “shit” to give the bolg some zing and the promise of “8. . . ways” is surely more alluring than the reality of 3 half-assed ways, one of which isn’t really for copyrighting.
So, easiest way to prove you created something first; you mail it to yourself. It’s not a legal copyright of course, but its dated by a federal institution and can be opened in court if you need to. The poor man’s copyright, i always mail Remi tunes to myself, i’ve got a briefcase of unopened mail full of CD’s.
Garageband.com, i often mention how great this site is. They too date when you upload, and i’ve heard that they will let you use this against a potential rip off band if you need to. Sorry, i guess this copyrighting only applies to music, hey i said this was going to be a pretty lame. Anyone who really needed something good has left by now. . . . .
Man do people ever get this one wrong. Taking a picture of something with a newspaper doesn’t work. . . ..Think about it, why couldn’t you get an old newspaper and say you took the picture back whenever the paper’s date was, . .. come on people . .. I am, however going to take a newspaper picture of my apartment. Proving something remained in a certain state up until the date of your photo works well. I suppose you could take a picture of a newspaper with the intellectual property you hadn’t yet created to prove that up until the date of the photo you were not yet the creator of the work.
Trying a new thing here, if it works, I am going to try and fit a different song onto each new post + the best old ones. Also some reworking of the best posts list and such coming up so that our heated discussions and hot talk aren’t lost to the brutal last page. . . . where the manure pile seems to envelope the whole screen. Does that happen on other people’s screens or is it just my shitty mac?
