Hi Drew and Greg
Thank you very much for your replies.
When I first made my designs I intended them to be kind of 'standard'
designs which I hoped would simply spread the message of peak oil.
But I also asked permission from someone else to borrow the 'hubbert's peak'
curve (like a bell curve representing oil production over time), and I
established a friendship / semi-business relationship with him, and he
suggested I add his web address beneath the designs. I was more than happy
to do that.. especially as he displayed my work on his homepage, and about
75% of the hits on my site come from his site.
Since making the designs they have kind of taken off but they have also
become strongly associated with my friend's website, and are now a kind-of
logo for his website. I now feel an allegiance to him and his website and
want to retain that. So I'm now thinking of changing the conditions of the
license so as to 'protect' the design from being modified for use by others.
However I am still very much in favour of the designs (as I've made them)
being spread and used as much as possible by anyone who wants to, for
I understand that I would have to stand by the original license in the case
of anyone who has that one (prior to me changing it, which I haven't done
I'll think on it - whether or not I change it, over the next few days.
Thank you very much fro your replies.
