Copyright Essential

It sounds like dev.to team does not give a shit to copyrights.

I posted a friendly reminder, and it got zero feedback from them.

So far, so good. I launched the process to sue dev.to for abusive usage of copyrighted content. My lawyer is currently finding ways to settle, FWIW.

We do have copyright rules in the terms and we respond to reports and takedown requests dutifully, in the same vein that Twitter, Medium, and any other platform for user-generated content does.


That is not exactly the case AFAICT.


Next time you might be interested in having your own mail server that does not reject whatever requests for spam without track record after 1 year.


Not directly contacting the team, but instead making a public post. Then after 2 whole days (the weekend, when a lot of people take a break from their job), suing. I struggle to find words...


Make sure you understand the issue is 2 years there.

Also, make sure you have no idea how often I had been contacting a team.


The “friendly reminder” you mentioned was posted 2 days ago leading into the weekend. And it was the only correspondence you mentioned. That’s what I understand.

Good luck to you in your future endeavors for we shall never converse again.

Wow. Now we have holidays in being humans?

dev.to team pushes fascist notions to free speech and I am gonna be against.


IMHO DEV should enforce choosing either CC-BY-SA-4.0 or CC-O.

How does it relate to lead photos?


No, it does not mean I am to accept tips, thanks for asking.


1029 and counting.

The thing is the reward is not going to me, obviously it goes to copyright holders.
