. . . I hope this doesn't allude to the bogus notion of
"moral rights" in the WIPO Performances and Phonograms
Treaty (i.e., the rights of attribution, which makes sense,
and of "integrity," which is strange in the digital era,
except that it becomes abhorrent when coupled with the
"support DRM metadata" provisions in that treaty).
I reserve no rights restricting copying, modification or
distribution of this incidentally recorded communication.
Original authorship should be attributed reasonably, but
only so far as such an expectation might hold for usual
practice in ordinary social discourse to which one holds no
claim of exclusive rights.
