I was a bit concerned about some content I was using,
sent a lawyer friend a URL and had him write up
an affidavit (I think that was the term) that he
got the content (pasted in the document) from the
URL (also pasted) on such and such date. Signed and
dated it. Filed away for reference.
Rather clumsy approach if you're doing this on a regular
basis, though. If the content is popular, then other people
would have used it, and would be willing to testify they
also got it under a CC license as well. If the content only
got picked up by one person, it might be a bit more tough.
But then, maybe it isn't popular enough to be a big deal?
all bugs are shallow with many eyes, I suppose.
Even legal ones.
