The copyright question (2)

(from – This Overland Article)

What are these outstanding questions about copyright? I am obviously confused because I believe in the fundamental right of the artist to ownership of the work. So I don’t see any questions.

Other people may not believe in the fundamental right of the artist to ownership of the work, cool, they can give it away and we can all use it. Where is the question? All I ask is for you to ask me for permission to use the work, like you would ask me to use my mower and I would ask you before I ate your chickens. All you have to do is ask and acknowledge your sources. Because acknowledging your sources preserves the train of thought for future generations, and it is good manners.
