copyright policy

I'm not particularly against copyright, at least in principle, but I have no intention of controlling the copying and distribution of most of the material on this site. As such, I disclaim any copyright interest in any of my work in the public areas of this site: information, images, code, all of it. If I'm the sole author, that puts the work in the public domain. I might change this policy at some point (once I have something on the site worth protecting), but if so, I'll note it.

Not all the information on this site is mine. If I quote someone in a post, please assume that the quote is covered by copyright (but is probably requotable under fair use). Papers may be covered by copyrights owned by Stanford University, Harvard University, Rambus, my co-authors, their institutions, and/or the conference or journal they're published in.

Recipes on this site are from me, my family and my friends.

I sometimes use this site as an easy way to send files around, so data in “hidden” URLs and password-protected areas of this site isn't all mine. Assume that it's copyrighted. In fact, even if it's mine, assume that it's copyrighted, because some of this stuff is private.
