A few of you have asked me about the legalities of posting your own [original] writing in your journal - i.e. poetry, lyrics, short stories. I was pretty sure about the US copyright laws [phew!] John Scalzi confirms here that once you write it, it's yours! [think about the date/time stamp on your journal entries!] There are a few exceptions but they all involved your permission.
So WRITE ON! Post those poems! Play those original songs! Share your stories! And - of course - journal and blog to your heart's content! That's what we're all here for anyway, isn't it?
