Some Rights Reserved
I post a lot of my original fiction to this blog. I have decided to license all of it under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license.
This license allows for others remix, tweak, and build upon works non-commercially, as long as the original creator is credited and the new creations are licensed under the identical terms. It also allows for others to download and redistribute the works as long as the original creator is credited.
In other words, this means that if you like something you see here and you want to do something inspired by it–maybe writing more stories, maybe drawing a picture or even writing a song–you are absolutely free to do it, as long as a) you credit the original work, b) you don’t sell it for money, and c) you put your new work under the same Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike licence.
My blog policy is to post my fiction for free because I want to share them with as many people as possible. And if people want to have fun with whatever I’ve created and want to play around with it–well, I’m giving them the license to do so!
