We noticed you attached photosto your comment.
Thank you!.....I just saw this and checked. looks like it's taken down.
I looked up scribd's policy and found the attached information. It is against their policy to post that info unless the copyright holder permitted them to do so. If any of those ibles are yours, I highly recommend you follow the link below and report him to scribd.
How enforceable are the CC licenses?
Is it better too label them the highest level or does it mean practically nothing?
They're just as enforceable as any other license. Basically, it's about how much force you're willing to apply to the situation. In this case, Scribd had no reason to fight back and simply removed the content. In some other cases I've heard about around the forums, the company in question is actually making money and fights back, so it's up to you to decide whether you want to hire a lawyer.
Cool, I thought there was something underlying them so they were practically all the same otherwise you would have to pay.
Thanks Brooklyntonia, I have been reading these comments but haven't had time to respond until now. I see that the account is deleted. Probably since most of his content came from here.
I actually found his account because of the squiggly line next to the name of my 'ible. It gives the source of most of the traffic coming in. Our screen names remained active in the documents he posted so people were probably clicking back to here. The main problem I had with him posting there (Beside the obvious infringement) is that he posted my 'ible as CC when I have it posted as All Rights Reserved. But thanks for your quick action on this matter. I'm glad to see that it was solved.
So, assuming a lot of users here unaware about the fact that their work is stolen by this guy, would't it be nice to inform the users so they can take the right actions?I mean only with action we will be able to stop these idiots making profit with the ideas of other people...
I suggest the if you see something on a different website and you find an older, identical Instructable for it - you leave a PM with the author including a link to the stolen work.Might even be better to include a "I found it stolen" in the 'ibles - this way anyone finding a stolen copy can help with ease to stop this habbit.
I want to inform all of them. However, it will take a while to do that, and I've only had time to inform one, so far.
I've just looked at the Scribd site, and their office is only a few streets away from Pier 9.
Maybe they could send an intern round. A large intern.
HA! Well, I sent them all a PM directing them to this thread.
