    I'm pretty sure copyright is retained by the author even when the work is published unless otherwise agreed. I had a talk with a lawyer specializing in internet law about this once. From her website:
    When Do You Get a Copyright?

    Upon creation (in a fixed form), a creator (author) has a copyright in the work.

    What's Required to Get a Copyright?

    You do not need to apply or register to have a copyright; you receive copyright protection when you create the work...
    So kickcatcher can do whatever he wants with his work.

    Typically, when you write an article for a website, that means that they are given first electronic rights; the only commitment to which the author is bound is that the article's first online appearance is on said website. After that, they can do whatever they want with it.

    You would have to sign a contract for a publisher or, in this case, bloated self-aggrandizing dilettante, to retain any rights over your work whatsoever.

    In this case, the author's work remains his own.

    You know, if I were in the United States right now, I'd actually call Phil. Like, just to try and reach him, and have a conversation without backpedalling and defensiveness.

    I'll bet if you wrapped your body with 5000 rolls of electrical tape you'd be impervious to knife attacks too; that's not the point.

    The point is: it's fucking stupid.

    But with the books you´ll always have something to read in the bus and/or subway.

    Only if you're stupid enough to expose yourself to a knife attack just to alleviate your boredom.

    o rly?

    And what would you do, smartass, if you were in the can and hadn´t any paper? Would you rather walk around with **** in your pants or would you sacrifice a piece of your armor and risk death at the hands of a panhandler gone stabby?

    The issue has some really good stuff in it. In particular, after Jason's excellent improvised body armour article, I'm likely to add some plywood layers to a lightweight boiled leather vest I've been working on for a while.

    It is funny, I've used textbooks as a shield or a club before several times, but it never occurred to me to carry things through the way he does.
