ASCII Train Posted without Linkback

trainpostednocreditI noticed my ASCII art train posted to this site while I was looking to see if anyone else has posted ASCII art for the New Year, 2015. I sent a note to the site owner because the train is posted without a link back to my site or even the site where the image was found and is still linked to for downloading. Not good to steal bandwidth. Also, the source site is a friend of mine. I wrote a post for her and added my ASCII as images for illustration with the post. I did not give them away for anyone to upload and offer them as free. I think people still don’t really understand copyrights online.

I don’t mind the ASCII art being displayed on another site. Not so keen on having it offered for distribution as freeware. It isn’t freeware, it isn’t free really, other than free to look at. I think it is fair to expect a linkback along with the ASCII art image. I don’t think that is asking or expecting too much. Of course, I feel especially strong about this depending on how the site uses the ASCII art. If a commercial/ business site uses ASCII art they should track down the artist and offer to pay for the art. I have more leeway with personal sites.

Anyway, will see what happens in this case. I sent a note, tried to write with all the details. If you look at the site the information about copyrights and asking for your art to be removed makes it seem they are holding the art hostage and expect the artist to do everything they ask (as they ask) just to hear back from them. I don’t know if they meant it to sound that way, but that was how I felt as I read it. (See below).

Copyrights have never been a simple thing online. I see the issues as both a web publisher and someone who creates original content which gets stolen, borrowed and so on. Kind of a good thing to have more than one point of view about it all in one head.

From the Original Respect ASCII Artists Campaign Page (now 404)

What is the “Respect ASCII Artists Campaign”? Well, it’s something that I decided to do not long after a few things happened that I didn’t agree with. When an ascii artist draws any art, that art is rightfully theirs. No other person has a right to claim the art. Most ascii artists will tag their art in some for or another. Such as…

Link With This Ribbon

Yeah! I got the SnowGlobe back up! LoL This SnowGlobe for instance, was made by Joan Stark. Her tag is the jgs. This is how people know that the ascii was drawn by her. When an artist colors it, for example how I colored it. The tag must always stay with that ascii art. Even if hidden within the color, the art is still tagged and people will know what artist drew it.

Not only does the respect go towards the ascii art. We can go a bit further with their popup files. Anything really, not belonging to you should not be changed without prior consent of that particular artist or creator. It’s just common sense and respect towards others.

Many people get confused about copyright laws and what they mean, I’ve included a few links below to let you know exactly what they are. They are important not only to the ASCII artists, but to any artist who creates. Such as…an artist who creates graphics for you to use on your websites. Give all artists the respect of a simple link back to their pages. All it takes is one or two lines of code. That’s all. Just like the tag on any ASCII art, link back to a graphic artist as well. They will thank you for it. If you don’t know who the graphic or ascii was made by….then kindly state that somewhere in the ascii art or on the website. If that artist sees it, they will be able to let you know. But in the mean time, just make sure that you give due credit.

Intellectual Property Law Primer

Now… Hopefully, I have explain myself well enough for you to understand what point I am trying to make. It’s just important to give credit where the credit is due…just do the right thing. If you wish to support this cause, please download the ribbon to your own server and upload it with a link back to this page. Let’s let others know what this is all about. Thanks, and feel free to email me if you wish and I’ll put you on the list of supporters. Let’s do if for the artists as well as ourselves. We owe that to them.

Huh, really similar !!! I didn't be aware of this. And there is an other
illegal thing: The signature contains a 'No, no, no MUSTN'T use'-character.
Before I begin to draw a new signature let me tell you a little story in
my broken English ...

....._/_/... elcome. This is version 2.0 of ye olde Scarecrow's archive.
If you've seen the first effort, then you know what to expect. This one is
more of same.

As before, the following art has been reproduced, posted, and passed around
many, many times. Here's my particular collection, for you to do with as you
please. I'm not aware of any copyright hassle. If someone doesn't want their
art to appear here, tell me and I'll remove it immediately.

I've included 'From:' lines to tell who emailed or posted the piece(s).
In many cases, the person who sends or posts the art is not the creator.
Unfortunately that information is sometimes lost.

The sender's comments are in quotes. My comments appear in brackets.
Anything else came as part of the art. The various postings and archives have
been gathered and edited by The Scarecrow.

Most of the editing that I did was in selecting what was to be included.
I removed unnecessary leading spaces (except in sigs, plans and bbs art) and
removed blank spaces from anything over 80 columns wide. Actually, I try to
keep everything to within 78 columns, as I hear some systems can't handle any
more on one line. I also fixed obvious file damage. I only did 'touch up'
work on a few pieces. Most everything appears as it was sent.

This archive is over 350 K, and contains hundreds of pieces (I didn't have
time to count them). It's just a sampling of what's 'out there' that caught
my eye as the parade of goodies passed by. They come from posts, email,
private collections, pictures I made or modified, etc.

Thanks to all of you who have emailed me with art to include. Because
there are practical size limits for a file like this, there isn't room for
everything. So I put in samplings from as many as possible. Thanks again.

Send comments, suggestions and ascii art to: boba@gagme.wwa.com
^^^^^^^^ ""''""""""" ~~~~~~~~~
Enjoy!

Scarecrow

And now it's time to stop and view the sigs. This is our little sig
gallery. If you see any good ones, send them to: boba@gagme.wwa.com

As someone once wrote:

"Warning! PLEASE do not include ascii art in your signature files in
Usenet newsgroups. What may be OK in private email, is in very poor
taste and an abomination when you are asking thousands of systems to
transmit it. It _WILL_ cause you to burn in hell! Trust us!"

Guess I'd better buy some asbestos usderwear. Look out now! Course, if us
sig ponters didn't post sigs, posted sig haters wouldn't have posted sigs to
hate (and grab for their collections). :-}

Well, here's my .sig. It's been developed from someone else's so I can't
