Here is a copyright warning which I posted a few days ago. All or
part of this article may be recycled as you see fit. This has NOT
been checked by a lawyer.
I have sent many private notes about this problem. This is my second
public notice in as many months. Do not repost copyrighted articles
on XXX unless you have the copyright owner's permission. If you find
something interesting on the web, post a brief description and the web
address. Note that there need NOT be a formal copyright notice. In
the US, anything written is copyrighted by default as soon as it is
affixed to a permanent media (such as a hard drive). Brief quotes or
extensive paraphrasing of an article is fine if properly attributed.
Wholesale copying without permission is not OK. Please show the same
courtesy to other authors as you would expect for your own work.
