I guess its just me but I don't understand any of this.
If I post something on the internet for educational or entertainment purposes I do it to share info not for money or any other gains ( well maybe the feeling that I may have helped or made someone smile)
Now if someone decides to take the content of what I posted and makes money with it so what?
I never posted to make profit or gain if someone else makes profit from it big deal I would never have seen that gain in the first place as it was never my intention for posting.
Also if that person makes profit by sharing the info then good the info is still getting out there as was my intention.
Would it suck that someone would make a profit on my work yeah but thats how things go, again the work I shared was to be given away anyway for free no strings attached unless otherwise stated. So it wouldn't bother me. I wouldn't cry.
I post something on the net its done gone out of my hands. its out there to be shared and hopefully not used to hurt anyone.
Seems to me that once someone makes a profit or may make a profit on something someone else does then they think damn .Thats my Money or could be. OR I never intended it to be used that way etc.
If its posted by someone with no strings, ties disclaimers thats it done its out of your hands.
I say stop and think before posting as to why you are posting and what may happen with your post.
If your post may be used in ways you may not like or not with the reason you are really posting then don't post.
Call it a posting risk and remember no one is putting a gun to your head to post on the internet.
Again thats just me Im strange that way.
