Creative Commons & Permission

By Bryan • blog, personal • 23 Aug 2012

Some unfortunate activities have required me to remove several of my more recent posts.  I wish to be very clear.  My views, thoughts, opinions expressed on my website are my own and in no way reflect my employer or anyone else.  I take great care in ensuring the material on my website falls well within the BC Public Service Standards of Conduct.  Posts and photographs that may contain aspects of my job are cautiously considered through the lens of confidentiality, loyalty, professionalism and service to the public.   Anything that I have posted in the past (and future) is reflective of issues that are within the public domain.

Furthermore, all content on this website (written, photographic or otherwise) is protected under the Creative Commons-Non Commercial-Non Derivs license.   This means you are free to share, distribute and transmit my work, providing you meet the following criteria.

  1. Attribution — You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).
  2. Non-Commercial — You may not use this work for commercial purposes.
  3. No Derivative Works — You may not alter, transform, or build upon this work.

Should you choose to use any material in contravention of the above, you must obtain permission from the author (me).

It takes a single email to ask permission, and it is diappointing I was never provided with that courtesy yesterday.  I have been asked before, and I am generally more than happy to grant permission, providing I have a solid understanding of how the material is to be used and that is it not tweaked, altered or misused against myself, my employer or my family and friends.

I obviously cannot control online leakage, however I can follow due diligence to the best of my ability and I expect fellow professionals to do the same.

Thank you for understanding.
