My suggestion to ourselves: set new Nepali standard on respecting
intellectual property right. Well, you can cite partial news clip, but,
lets respect the IP right by not posting the full text of someone whom
we neither requested for courtesy copy nor paid the CC fees. So,
post only a few paragraphs and then, give a link to the original site.
In doing so, you are infact increasing traffic to their site and
copying a part of the news make sense to the owner of the clip.
More traffic to them, means more clicks, and more clickes means
more money to them via Ads and CM, and we will keep on getting
better service. I am not giving lecture to offend you, but, lets
raise our standard.
Well, I have made my own rule for myself that I will not be copying
music and video CD / VCR Tapes / cassette recorder even if I can not buy
original CDs/CT/VCR Tapes, so that I can remain deprived of listening to
Music, but, it will let me avoid snatching someone's time at no cost.
Lets support IP rights and our own peoples will also get benefit and
our stars will not be leaving our country and coming to US to stay
illegally because they could not make enough money from their
original casettes, the reason is we don't like originals as some peoples
say: you have casette recorder at home, why should you bother
IP rights. Xerox copying maching has one notice: buying a Xerox maching
does not grant you right to copy anything you like. Get CC from CCC.
Not to offend you. I am scared that you will blast me. But, this is one
great thing (CCC) that we have to learn in USA. This country is what is
today because of respect ot IP right.
