I am saying that funds were solicited by me on RC, Gunks, ST, MP, SP, CC and possibly several other sites. Some people responded via email, some via PM on whatever site they saw it on, and in other cases a random check simply appeared in my mailbox. And in one case the donation was a $20 Starbucks card. RC neither had any involvement in this testing nor did they ever officially sanction any of the work I've done in The Lab. My suspicion is that officially sanctioning the testing of commercial gear by a user would interfere with the business/advertising relationship they need to maintain with the gear manufacturers and as such it was always considered my personal work product that they had no claim to.

Speaking only for myself, I sent you $50 to buy some Aliens for testing. This was based on your request for help on this site. I would like to see those results remain. You are welcome to remove the work you did and send me a $50 bill as well.

The deletetion of posts is very unfair towards the co-contirbuters of the lab.

Tough shit.

Funny, that's exactly my opinion to the people who complain about the posts being restored.

Maybe it ought to be that way, but it usually isn't. Equivalent, that is.

RC.Com is essentially a publisher. Standard boilerplate on a publishing contract transfers copyright to the publisher.

With a "real" book publisher, you can try to negotiate different language-- most agents or copyright lawyers will demand a contract that allows the author to keep copyright --but many, many Internet sites begin from old-skool boilerplate.

Most of the climbing sites have some version of a Terms of Use that resembles the old-skool boilerplate. That means that if DMT decides to publish a new book that contains DMT stories previously published on, say, RC or ST, the owners of those sites may decide to drop the hammer. (Unlikely, under the current regimes, but if/when C-Mac sells out to Giant Media Corp. FTW, it could become a possibility.)

Down in the tubes, though, stuff is really messy. I've now been to several panels on legal rights, authors rights, copyright, and publishing in which none of the legal authorities seemed to agree with each other.

And "Fair Use" doctrine isn't what it used to be.


PS-- none of this is meant to imply an opinion on whatever NA is doing or on the meltdown itself.
