Sorry if it does not fit the theme. Is there a way to keep the copyright, if a site owner just use a free domain name (like me). Because I know that plagiarism is very rife. And I was afraid if I will fall because some works are plagiarized/recognized by the more established sites.
Do I really need to change the domain as soon as possible? But I still don’t have a reason for it. Whether I should postpone my ideas until the right time? Or how?
As Christopher says, you can’t copyright CSS. You can copyright graphics, and you can copyright the overall look of a website – but not the code itself. Simply because you could never prove in a court of law that they actually copied you.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say you can technically also copy someones site via CSS and HTML however, their images and whatever programming languages they use are off limits. The person(s) whose site has been copied can claim trade dress. It is also highly, highly frowned upon in this industry. It will ultimately ruin you.
@ChristopherBurton, @Brightonmike, @standuncan: So nothing bad will happen because everything are may be having the same thing?
How about adding the MIT and GPL licence? I’m not very familiar with those licenses. How can something be licensed to MIT and/or GPL?
Maybe actually much simpler. Just about how I can get the trust when there are other people who modify my work without putting the author information. Whether the waiting time or just use the time published URL of the article can be the evidence that can be trusted?
