Copyright (All Rights Reserved)

Since all the content on this blog is personal stuff, I’m afraid I am reserving all rights to the blog and its content. It’s not what I usually do (I am a big fan of the Creative Commons movement) but given the personal nature of most of my content, I’d be more comfortable having as much control as I can over the content in this blog. Here are my terms of use:

Non-Commercial Sharing/Republishing: You’re free to share any or all content on this blog if your intention is noncommercial (i.e. you don’t stand to make any money doing so). This does not require my prior permission provided you ensure the content is attributed to me and the original source (this blog) is acknowledged.

Derivation, Extraction, Modification, and Use in Your Own Work: However, if you wish to use certain portions or pieces of content (text extracts, pictures, videos, screenshots, and so on) in your own work (commercial or otherwise), please contact me using the comments box at the bottom of the relevant blogpost before you do so. The same rules apply if you wish to extract and modify any content. Generally, I won’t have a problem but I would like to know where my content is going, and what it’s being used for before I agree to any extractions or modifications.

Commercial Sharing/Republishing: If you wish to use this blog’s content for commercial purposes, you cannot republish any content from this blog on your own site or blog without my prior permission, even if you attribute it to me. The reason I am doing this is because I’ve been subject to a previous experience where someone reposted a full blog post (attributing it to me, to give them credit) on their own (commercial) site and made some money off my content. I don’t generally have an issue with that, but I would like to be told in advance if someone wants to use my content to make money.

This is more or less compatible with the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International licence. So if you have any doubts, refer to the terms of this licence or (better still), contact me by posting in the comments section of the relevant blogpost.
