a place for zinesters - writers and readers
are you going to have a wider selection of 'opinions' or is this just a whine fest by like minded zinesters....Jerianne is supposed to be 'objective' editor of all zines at least thats what was led to beleive...you should do a podcast with opposing views...otherwise your podcast appears to be simple exercise in mental masturbation and only seems to be a minority concern amongst the varied zinesters listed in Teal Triggs book.
It's sad that there's no like button on WMZ. :)
Dude, I have never pretended to be an objective anything.
I worked for my college newspaper and we needed permission to use any art/photo. If we did not get it, we could not use it period.
Just yesterday, I received an email asking to use one of my pictures from my food blog. I said sure. It was nice to be asked before the guy use it.
It sounds like most ziners were OK with someone republishing their stuff.The issue was asking permission.
Example: I provide permission to reprint this zine in full or in part for educational use, for use in publication for reviews, as part of a published book on zines or comics, for use in a zine computation or up to 3 copies for a personal collection or zine library, but not for resale.
Reprints must include under the artwork: Courtesy: Soupzine by Brian Steinberg
as i listen to Ramsey's interview on NCAYSZP #3 a 'new' term came to mind:
Joe's gone? (I have to say he WAS cutting into my enjoyment of this site).
It really wasn't fair to have people here trying to defend why you want copyright to apply to your own work.
Um, its beyond disrespectful... it's illegal. Your zine is under copyright protection from the moment you make it. I know there are plenty of zinesters out there than don't give a flip about copyrights -- I've had artwork stolen; I guess we all have -- Prof Triggs should know better.
