There always seem to be confusion over this subject, for as long back as I can remember and before forums and so forth became so popular. There's also still confusion about code written at work, both by employees and contractors - I'm not aware of the differences between US and here in the UK, never been bothered particularly.

If you post/publish code/articles etc. you're putting it into the public domain ( for others to do with as they see fit ) as to who "owns" it - well if I post code on a microsoft msdn forum does microsoft own it ?

I'm still slightly worried about the Redgate ownership ( not for this reason ), but as to publishing code/articles - if you write something good hopefully others will want to use it, why else submit/post - the obvious concern is plagiarism and this does tend to happen, copyright or not.

I have seen some non-IT forums that claim copyright to everything posted on the forum. Glad to hear that this one is not that way.

That is disappointing that some people have gotten that idea.

Steve,
Thanks for addressing this so quickly. I would have been be very upset if the transfer to RedGate could so severely twist the MARVELOUS help-tool you've built here. Glad it's not so.

As I continue to get highly useful insights from SQLServerCentral, I am encouraged to contribute in return.

Thanks again,
Peter

I don't think it was Bert, but thanks to him for pointing this out as a potential problem.

Hat's off to the "remaining partner"... well done, Mr. Jones!

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

*scratches head*

When in doubt, check the terms and conditions... this is a good policy for any site, especially any e-commerce sites. I guess I'm not surprised that folks didn't check out things more closely for themselves, but FUD never gets us anywhere in the end.
