Let’s do this.
“If I’m to be a fool, let me be a generous one.” – me, just now
My current license on most of my works is Creative Commons’s “CC BY-NC.” That’s their “You can share and spread this material, remix and transform it, but you must attribute the original work to me and you cannot use it for commercial purposes.”
Once my items leave my personal copyright zone, they will be under a “CC BY-SA” license. That basically means “you can share, spread, remix, transform my work, and you can even do it for commercial purposes.”
As of today, March 26, 2014, my personal copyright is going to be ten years. This will not apply retroactively to works, but rather all works created by me now have a copyright-reboot date of today. This means that this comic will become available under the second CC license on March 26, 2024. If a work was created by me in 1992, it will still only become available in 2024. The details are a bit more complex, but they’re not particularly relevant yet.
SUMMATION: On March 26, 2024, everything I’ve created on/before today—for better or worse—belongs to everybody.
This comic and my copyright choice are dedicated to the memory of my dear friend Michael Hart.
