Hey, I don’t know if anyone remembers the conversation back a little while. But the idea of Mutual Artistic Respect was just a little idea we had as a more artistic version of the copyright. I’ve seen some sites that will take a whole paragraph just to explain if you take their stuff they’ll hunt you down. What the Mutual Artisitc Respect idea is, instead of just posting a broad copyright and locking down everything (including HTML code, structure, graphics, etc.), it would say what you allow and encourage people to use freely, and what you don’t want them to use or at least ask permission for. It dosn’t do anything more than the copyright, only to help promote a feeling of mutual respect between artists.
I believe that artists should hold dear to them they’re individual artistic works. Such as graphics, poems, stories, animations, etc… But the modern copyright seems so cold and unforgiving towards everything, including how someone might place some HTML. Now if your artistic talent is web design, then let people know that. But if your talent is 3D art, or poetry, then why not let someone use or learn from your HTML code.
I’m not sure if this makes any sense, but for those that like the idea, I’m looking for a logo. It would just be something little and simple. I was thinking perhaps of something that symbolized artistic expression and creativity in general. If anyone has any ideas, please post them.
