It's All Free, Y'All

Phil Haack (one of my favorite bloggers, I'm not ashamed to admit) makes an excellent point. To that end, I hereby state the following:


Any code that appears on this blog, or in the sections of the Pluralsight wiki, for which I own the copyright, is hereby licensed under the MIT License, unless otherwise stated.


I'll try to make a practice of being more explicit in the future when I post code. In the meantime, you're covered.


  1. Whew! And here I going to pass off your code as my own. ;)

    Ironically, I did make alterations of code you published a while ago: http://haacked.com/archive/2004/06/25/679.aspx

    This is before I understood licensing though. ;)

  2. Ah, well, at least I covered your ass retroactively. In any event, you're safe: my tiny little company is too small to afford lawyers.


  3. Can somebody explain to me why we keep bringing "legal stuff" to our daily lives? C'mon, I'm sure I'm not the only one that dislikes this subject. The more we embrace this king of things, the closer we are to needing lawyers at some point. Is it just because we are being impressed by all the lawsuit crossfire that we see and want to get our backs covered? I don't think the world needs any more lawyers than what we already have.

  4. I hate it too. Unfortunately the only real answer is to change the system - IP law reform.
