Because it came up and because it's important: A quick note with more to come

You do not need to ask my permission to reproduce copies of my zines, or to show images of them in print, online, or anywhere else. Copying is not theft.

The closest license that might be useful for my work would be the Creative Commons Attribution, Share-Alike. This goes for my zine work and the content of this blog (although some older entries may not be updated yet). The reason that I think the use of a license (as opposed to just declaring it Copyleft) is helpful in this case is for the share-alike aspects. Let's insist that freed things continue to be free as they move along.

I agree with Nina Paley:

♡ Copying art is an act of love. Please copy.

Caveat

I should add one disclaimer here that some zines I have created and helped with (Borough is My Library #1, Zine Librarian Zine #3) were edited. Thus the authors of each piece retain the ability to likewise free their work as they choose.
