A comprehensive and legally binding copyright policy is still under development.

In the meantime, keep these important facts about Copyright in mind when contributing:

  • When no other license is stated, copyright defaults to full, "All Rights Reserved" ownership by the content creator. This means that any content you upload to CP remains your own, and noone else has any claim to ownership.
  • However, the claim may be made that you are contributing to CP and therefore giving your work, and assigning the copyright, to CP, thus losing any and all control over your contributions. If this is the case, the lack of a formal copyright policy means that there is potential for your work to be used in ways you do not desire.
