I’ve decided to release my totally awesome and professional rendering of a Bludlemming from my Wicked as She Wants review to the internet at large using a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike Unported license. I realized that once the book is released, other bloggers may want to use the image, so I’m giving the would-be thieves a legal way to use my beautiful and accurate work of art.*
My job in publishing has opened my eyes to the intricate world of licensing and copyright, especially since working on a huge Open Access U.S. History textbook and having to deal with all the copyright and licensing issues that has come about from it. I’ve grown to understand the importance of giving a license to my creations, no matter how odd or insignificant I think they are. Someone, somewhere, sometime may want to use them, and I want to make that process as easy and pain-free as possible.
