me. I will have to go back and see what I can make out of it. I am
generally very protective of my copyright, even though I agree with Mark
that very little or nothing that I write here has any real financial value
For a general discussion on copyright issues, we must also remember that
rules differ between countries. In most of Western Europe, the individual
is much better protected than in the US, for instance. In Sweden, the
actual ownership to something that you have produced can never be traded
away (even though the rights to publish it can). So if Yahoo claims
ownership to something I have written (in Sweden, for Yahoo), can I call
upon Swedish law to reclaim it? I have no idea. Probably even lawyers
would have difficulties giving a straight answer.
