Intellectual Property Policy
Type: 
Standard proposal

Our IP policy! We already updated art policy to make use of US Code - Fair Use laws.

I would like to take a look at our text policies next, as it seems to be a reasonable thing to double check to make sure we're up to date. So here's what we have right now:

http://vaxia.org/wiki/terms-and-conditions

I would like to update this policy to one that's a much more modern version of this that has minimal impact on the rights and publishing rights of the original creator of content. Which is to say - I'd like to update us to Creative Commons.

Please take a look around here at the CC site if you're interested in this sort of thing http://creativecommons.org/

The specific license I would suggest putting Vaxia content under is this one: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/

Proposal help:
Proposals are meant to be a way to formally make a request for the input of site members. Forum threads and five-star ratings are not accurate enough for the big things. So here's how this works:
  • If you change your mind after you vote, you will be able to go back in and delete or change your vote up until the proposal closes.
  • The form will be open for 2 weeks, after which it will automatically close.
  • If the original poster edits it in that timespan the timer will re-set. This is to make sure everyone can get a chance to weigh in.
  • Only users active when the proposal was created can vote on it. This is to avoid ballot stuffing.
  • No one, not even the original poster will be able to see the names or IP addresses of the people do vote.
  • After the two week window has passed, the proposal will close and results will be publicly availble in a tab on this page.
9 out of 32 potential voters (28 %) responsed to this proposal. 9 out of 16 potential voters active on the site while the proposal was open (56 %) responded to this proposal.
This type of proposal does not require a minimum participation from the site. Enough voters have participated for the results of this proposal to be accepted.

Summary of responses reflects how many users selected a given value in the poll. In general, the larger the number the stronger the overall preference for that result. Text responses are briefly summarized but should be read individually.
