I’m not a lawyer, blah, blah, blah. And while marginally about copyright, this post is really more about common courtesy as well as common sense which someone (Wikipedia claims Voltaire) says isn’t so common. With a hat tip to Voltaire, I sometimes think common courtesy isn’t so common either. Maybe I should explain.
From a strictly legal sense, at least under US law, when you create a work of the kind covered under copyright law, you immediately have a copyright.

Happy Holidays! How about we dust off our blogs and post a link to them below during our Indies Unlimited blog-fest!
This is how it works: If you are an author, publisher, publicist, literary agent, librarian, book reviewer, (or especially a book-lover), etc., in the comments below, paste in the link for your blog, with a one sentence description of what you feature.
Show some love on the blogs in the comments above yours, by clicking over and adding them to your blogroll, liking some posts, or leaving a comment, even if that comment is nothing more than “Indies Unlimited sent me.” Be sure to check back throughout the day to catch up. (Remember: If you right-click the link, you can open it in a new tab so you don’t have to constantly page back and forth.) PLEASE only ONE link per person. Additional links WILL be DELETED.
This should be fun and should generate a lot of followers for everyone who plays. We’ll kick things off with ours – don’t forget to subscribe to us here at Indies Unlimited! Let’s get the party started!
IMPORTANT: Please do not reply to every comment in this thread. Instead, leave a comment on the person’s blog you like saying, “Indies Unlimited sent me. Nice blog! (or whatever)” Then after you’ve done a bunch, come back here and leave a marker at the bottom saying, “got everyone up to here.” If people reply to each comment with “liked you!,” we will have to turn off comment notifications because we generate more emails than the SPAM guidelines allow. Thank you.
PLEASE be sure to reciprocate by liking those who like you. This is give and take. If everyone plays by the golden rule, we all benefit.
