If my stories here were maps, on the edges, beyond the boundaries of my domain, would be written “Beware! Here Be Lawyers!” So be careful, lawyers are known to sometimes swallow ships that go astray from the known shipping lanes. And unlike the dragons of yore, lawyers aren’t mythical; they may even eat ships…or chips. Something like that.
However, if you lack the courtesy to send me a quick e-mail requesting permission, are not afraid of the giant dagger-like teeth of lawyers, and would still like to share this with a couple of your friends, please make certain the text, title, and (of course) author remain unaltered, proper credit and a link to the original piece (here) is given, and this notice is attached with the proper information filled in:
This text, [title], is copyright to Raven Daegmorgan. It is not in the public domain. It is not to be redistributed or published in any format without express written permission from the author. The original work can be found at [web address].
But if I find out these couple “friends” were a mailing list or a small fiction magazine or something, and you didn’t get permission from me…then it’s dragons. I mean lawyers. Seriously. Maybe a kraken, too.
