Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Recently I got an email of one of our haiku family members with the question to remove haiku from one of our cdhk e-books, because I hadn't asked permission to use those haiku. Of course I have removed the haiku, but ... it kept me busy.
In my opinion the haiku, tanka and other texts linked to cdhk I can use for our cdhk e-books. I always give credit to the poets, because that's normal in my opinion. This 'event' asks for response and I think that this will be a shock to you all.
If you are participating in cdhk than your works become part of the public domain therefore I am free to use it. I don't have to ask your permission or have to credit you, but because I think it's more than normal to credit all of your work I always give credit to the poets who submit and participate in every e-book I create.
All the rights of the works stay at their authors.
I love to hear your opinion about this ' permission issue'
Have a great Sunday,
Chèvrefeuille, your host.
