Re: Policy on works using unacceptable licenses?

Well as it seems we have two potential violations something much have gone wrong, I suggested in another thread that we might supplement the policy with examples of things to avoid. I suspect short of requiring a full audit trail for all submissions with ample documentation we will always see these slip ups, humans being fallable and all, but we might be able to minimize them by giving good examples of things to consider before submission. The human mind is apt to not thinking through all the scenerios that might create problems so helping it along is probably a good idea - sort of a "before you submit your work, did you check a,b,c,d....".

Well, I propose a simple guideline: "Don't like. When people ask about the source of your work, be honest and tell the truth." That would have solved all of our problems *weeks* ago, but I think it is common-sense and we should not have to have this as a written guideline.
