    it's infringement to paste the whole thing, unless clear license is given.  excerpted stanzas (or in the case of songs, verses) are okay, so perhaps people in the poetry diaries can be encourage to provide a lick and a promise... err... a link and a stanza, i mean ;-)

    •  Stanza may be too much, nowadays.... (0+ / 0-)

      ...even a recognizable word may be too much.  Fair use rights have been so whittled down as to be almost meaningless.

      Assume you have no rights.  In this IP culture we live in, you pretty much don't have any.

      •  That's an exaggeration (0+ / 0-)

          "busted" is an appropriate term for criminal law

          copyright is civil law ... in these cases, it sucks if ya gotta lawyer up ... costs of defending can be extraordinary ...

          the wise one does not wish to be exposed at all
