Changes to copyright for this blog.

If you ever read my old copyright statement you found that I was very relaxed about the reuse of my content and released it under a Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License.

However, after seeing some of my content has turned up on splogs and I think splogs are evil and the bane of bloggers, I thought I should take the first step and change my copyright to Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License.

If you can find a commercial use for my content, let me know and I will give you permission, unless you are intend to use it to just generate advertising revenue or for search engine manipulation.

    Nick, How did you discover content from your web site was being siphoned for nefarious purposes?

    I was getting trackbacks from a splog that used my review of the my new camera. It was just the summary, stripped of links and as it was attributed to me, it fitted the conditions of the licence. But it was a nasty little automated thing, designed to accumulate keywords and make money via advertisements.
