    I dunno if I should be miffed or flattered. In 2016, I wrote a poem. In February 2018 (the earliest I can find – though I’m sure it was originally 2016) I shared it to facebook. In the past few months, I’m seeing bastardised versions of it cropping up all over the place.

    Now, it wouldn’t bother me if I was accredited, but I’m not, and so I dunno how I feel about the whole thing, flattered or peed off.

    Ryzen 7 1800X, 16 GB, 6 (yes - 6) HDs inc 2 SSDs, 4 RPi 3Bs + 1 RPi 4B - one as an NFS server with two more drives, PiHole (shut yours), Plex server, cloud server, and other random Pi stuff. Nice CoolerMaster case, NV GTX 1060 6GB, and a whopping 32" AOC 1440P monitor.

    flattered. Imitation if the highest for of it.

    Once you plop it on the net, its no longer yours anyhow. Not unless you safgarded it first. So just be satisfied it was good enough it’s caught manys imagination.

    Check FB TOR. Iirc this FB post sums it up:

    “Technically, you own all of the content you post on Facebook; therefore, you can copyright it. HOWEVER, by posting something on Facebook you:

    …grant [Facebook] a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on… Facebook.
    and while this license ends when you delete the content from Facebook or delete your account, this does not apply if “your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.”

    For practical purposes, this could reasonably be interpreted as meaning that if somebody saves content you shared on FB to their computer, then while you still own the copyright to that content, Facebook has full rights to use that content, as does anyone they choose to sub-license or transfer that right to.”
