Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day

27582385ea0500c8bc281f6e1b1cf0d4

Ahoy! (I couldn’t resist.)

To celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day, I thought I would share one of my favorite quotes from Mark Twain.

If you would like to read about my own pirate ship adventure last year (complete with pictures!), please visit the following:

On Writing: Images that Inspire Creativity

While exploring a near-by city I came across this ruined old water tower that had been preserved for posterity.  The picture is now in my computer background rotation.  Images like this lead to story inspirations for me.

I hope that this inspires a story for you as well!

A Question of Copyright

Copyright-_all_rights_reserved

This is an interesting article about copyright and the public domain.

http://news.msn.com/offbeat/who-owns-this-monkey%E2%80%99s-selfie-1

The issue in summary–a crested black macaque came across David Slater’s photography equipment in the field and, while examining his reflection in the lens, snapped some pictures of himself. Wikipedia placed these photographs online in one of their entries.

David Slater requested the pictures be removed from Wikipedia. He claims the pictures belong to him because they were taken with his camera equipment.

The Wikimedia Foundation, which runs Wikipedia, refuses to remove the pictures because it is the work of a non-human animal and therefore has no human author to claim copyright.

I do find this to be a strange argument on the part of Wikipedia. If Slater holds the copyrights to these images, they should not be used without his permission. Whether he actually snapped the picture or not, the copyright laws protect the owner of the images. The owner does not need to be the author.

What do you think about these issues? Let me know in the comments below.

Celebrate The Beauty of our Country

I hope that you are enjoying this Independence Day with your family and friends! I hope that you also get some time to go and explore the wonderful natural areas our country has to offer. The astonishing beauty of our national landscape is, to me, as spectacular as any fireworks display.
