Copyright Answered

I was recently contacted by a magazine asking the copyright i have with instructables on a specific instructable. Am i able to have them publish the project? Do i need to do anything special like mention instructables? The default license on my account is as follows:

Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa)

This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. Others can download and redistribute your work just like the by-nc-nd license, but they can also translate, make remixes, and produce new stories based on your work. All new work based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also be non-commercial in nature.

Should i reset that to some other setting?


Youre getting published?!?!?
Wish I knew the answer. Sorry.
There are contact links here
near the top.

Thankyou. I think i found my answer under #10 Content. and for anyone that gets to this post i think this is what will help:

c. Instructables claims no ownership or control over any Content posted by unrelated third party users of the Site. As between Instructables and the Author, the Author retains all trademark and copyright rights to all Content posted within available fields, and is responsible for protecting those rights but is not entitled to the help of the Instructables staff in protecting such Content. Without limitation of these Terms, the poster of any Content represents that the poster has all rights necessary to post such Content (and for Instructables to serve such Content) without violation of any intellectual property or other rights or any laws or regulations.

I almost fell asleep reading the "legal"....


It's your work - as long as you have copyright on the content (images & text), you can do what you want with it.

Well done on being published, by the way - what magazine is it, and when will it hit the stands?

It's BYO and Wine Making Magazine. Not sure when it'll hit stands. I just got the email from the an associate editor and i thought i'd check the legality before spending the time to write the article.
