Is there any interest in this idea?

Automatically have a little copyright icon added to all your posts with your choice of copyright license.

I’ve seen someone around here manually adding a copyright statement to most of their posts and thought I’d see if others would be into it. It’d be unobtrusive and incorporated into the UI, rather than a piece of text in the post.

Your thoughts?

    You can’t rely on fair use because fair use works differently around the world, if it exists at all.

    As for copyright, you agree to terms & conditions when you sign up for your fediverse account. These should include language that grants permission to use everything you submit for federation.

      Instance hosters are currently relying on fair use since there’s been no agreements when I’ve signed up.

        Maybe. I don’t think anyone’s thought that far ahead yet. At least the lemmy devs give hosters the option to add a click through agreement to the signup page.
