You are completely free to make copies of things in the public domain, you can publish them, you can perform them, you can display them, or create derivative works based on them.....

Just saying

I will ask for once. The problem is,HERE ,after people have CLEARLY seen someone,copy & paste ,SO MUCH ,SO MANY TIMES, after that,NOTHING
That is said or typed, or printed is seen as an ORIGINAL thought & IF NOT signed with THE ORIGINAL AUTHORS name, it IS A LIE.
You may be a great,original writer,BUT I will never know,because until you at least show the original authors name,or even where the idea came from OR SOMETHING, why should I bother .
If you take over a whole page BUT THEN show where they came from,even or especially YOUR OWN I MIGHT bother reading.

a difference between relief and relaxation.

a difference between sufficient and fit.

love and in love.

Despite the rather draconian tone of what appears above, not everything is plagiarised. Things that are not subject to copyright are said to be in the public domain.
No one can claim exclusive ownership of things in the public domain, and anyone can do whatever they please with public domain works without obtaining anyone’s permission or paying any fees.

Just saying
but,
You miss the point Adrian,
Your quote above>>
"Things not subject to copyright are said to be in the public domain"

The poem "TENDER LOVER"

which you posted here ...
without signing the author's own name
IS under copyright!

really knowing
and unable to do anything about it
is all that’s left of irony
like most concepts
its one question
after the other
this one shorter than most
and
it makes it harder to forgive
when the person apologizing
isn't sincere....
however,
Imitation is the worst form of flattery
Because
It says
“you were good enough
…to copy…….
But not to spur a new direction of creativity”

I didn't mean to distract you, upon first interaction with you, I saw the
sun lights refraction shining upon human polka dots

I have a thought that I won't say,

I'll write you In the plot of a book, that takes place far far away

Most times I speak with haste, life is no computer, but I can still copy
and paste, my thoughts in a manner that properly compiles grace, and
with some glue, you trapped your hands upon plastic keys, and played
for me, a melody, and said I've been waiting my whole life to do this,

I am alone and I am free, and I will stay that way for a while, so don't
look at me with smile, and as quickly as it was created my memory can
be cut and pasted into a file you keep beneath your bed,

The cold is coming, and I hope you wear hats upon your head and
scarves upon your neck, for I hope you realize I am a sled, I don't stop
until I reach the bottom, of a barrel filled with luck I live my off of,

I never told you but I fucking love your polka dots

“The wind blows across my face,
Like constant sorrow, icy cold.
My soul shudders within the space,
Hidden deep in the narrow folds.
Yet faintly carried on Robins’ wings,
A scent of cherry blossom Spring,

In the numbing cold I go,
Crystal ice hides my sight.
The banshee howl of sorrow blows,
White petals across the night,
And on the icy wind a glow,
The hint of morning light.”

THIS POEM, CUT and PASTED BY ME, IS NOT PLAGIRISM !!

On the same note ,aren't YOU MORE obligated to provide the original authors name?
You know I am not even trying to be harsh,BUT I do like reading or looking peoples ORIGINAL thoughts,feelings etc. especially concerning certain matters,things in life.
Your obviously capable the WHY NOT differentiate between the two?
A curious question,without the internet were you writing a lot of your own work? were you reading A LOT of books,constantly seeking NEW information?
Your smarter than that,you weren't copying poems,from books piecing together short stories from various authors then rewriting them as your own.
I am truly curious. Rick
"I have now taken time to see,for those crying COPY CAT I agree!
The strong forewarning should be not misunderstood keeping things real is how we maintain our appeal.
Plagiarism is a big word ,if we kept it simple & they were seen as a petty thief or even capable of the greatest larceny, we would only argue as to what punishment the law should decree!

GOOGLE has made us into fantastic idiots, while also allowing the other fools to at least double check our honesty.
I would be honored to have MY words used twice,unless a magnate of paper pushers has taken their stake ,my commitment to them would mean my honesty would increase & be less fake.
The rights the legalities ,would not be taken in stride,making certain sentencing for some geek Judge a matter of pride.

INNOCENCE:

"Once, I slept on a feather bed, where angels hovered overhead.
I woke in the morning's early dawn-
Moonlight shadows on the lawn:

A songbird hopped on the windowsill, knocked & tapped with his little bill
singing about a summer's day..
urging me to come 'n play:

I jumped out of bed, said morning prayers
Ran like a whirlwind down the stairs-
Out the door -round the gens
longing to see my feathered friend
WISHING, like him, I could fly
thought the trees away up high!

But instead, I dabbled in the stream all day
& tumbled in the golden hay:

When nighttime stole across the land
Mama took me by the hand - to show what she had
made for tea> strawberry cupcakes> 3for me:

Later I slept in the SANDMAN'S arms..
fell victim to his sleeping charms...
he brought me up the stairs once more

I ran in my little door..
hopped into the feather bed
and the angels who were overhead..
touched my eyes with a sleeping wand &
beamed me off to slumberland:"

Though our words are said in anger,

She still listens to me,

She awaits aside my crazy bitterness,

through words of love,

and decisions of who I am,

Desperate to know she's okay,

I press into her life,

She always tells me she's okay,

Even though tears fill her eyes,

I guess she is always right,

Though I feel she's not forthright,

Let go this night your stupid fear,

Embrace me, for once, this night,

I will only love you, and forever love you,

Give to me one night.

Rick, never concern yourself about what I'm doing. Only worry about why, you're displaying the above apprehension about what I'M doing.

The curiosity and this prying oddity that you and your ilk are demonstration here toward me, is a type of poisonous malignancy, not only for those who drink it, but for everyone around it.

A dark cloud begins to pour

Tears of worry and torment

You have not done me wrong

You have kept me on the top step

But my foundation seems to crumble.

I source my feelings

Back to myself and realize,

That I was never whole with myself.

When I can truly only be happy

When I am fulfilling my life completely.

And I know you love me

Although we are not comparable to others

But that may be my defect

I will make it clear what I want.

I must remember that we are different from the others.

We- Uniform

I-Forlorn

Come on Adrian!
Show some intelligence,

POISONOUS MALIGNANCY?!! LOL.

In reply, you admonish Rick by saying>

"My life..My Choices, My business" etc!!!

Correction OUR business etc..

This is TOPIX .. an OPEN forum where posts discussions and opinions LINK..
That's the whole point of it.
RICK is perfectly within his rights to challenge you (or me) here.
We can agree or disagree whatever the case may be,
but we cannot 'stifle' another's freedom to debate-

It is not private messaging here... which would make it a different matter altogether.

You tell Rick to butt out..
You advise me to clear off and stay in my own forum!
while you wallper this thread with poems..

Is this what you want >

yours..the only 'voice' to be heard?

Famous, fabaceous fabulist follows facitios, facinorous famicide, fabricates fallibilism.
Faceless, farraginous fantassin facilitates fantastication, feigns fatuous fandango. Fascinated, factitious, fastuos factor faints.

Feculent, featous farris forbids farandole, fakes femicide, frightens fictitious, feracious figurant filming farruca.

Flamboyant, fissilingual fagottist fixes filiferous fiddle, fipples, filches flageolet.

Flagitious, flagelliferous flibbertigibbet flogs flinty, florisugent fleshling fattens fremescent, frigolabile fossarien.

Fulsome, fugacious flyweight fights furibund, funipendulous fructuary. Faithless flamen finishes fractious fracas, forgoes fauteuil, flags fiacre.

Translation.......

Famous, bean shaped one who invents fables, follows facetious, atrociously wicked one who destroys another’s reputation, fabricates the doctrine that empirical knowledge is uncertain.

Faceless, disordered infantry soldier assists the progress of fanaticizing over something, feigns purposeless lively Spanish dance performed by a couple.

Fascinated, factitious, ostentatious sculptor faints.

Covered in filth, fat decrepit female Irish blacksmith forbids lively provincial dance in which men and women hold hands, fakes killing of a woman, frightening fictitious, fruitful ballet dancer who only dances in groups, filming Spanish gypsy dance with sudden tempo and mood changes.

Flamboyant fork-tongued female bassoon player, fixes thread-bearing fiddle, plugs in the mouthpiece of a wind instrument, filches small flute with two thumb holes.

Grossly wicked, whip bearing gossipy person flogs unyielding, sucking honey from flowers sensualist, fattens muttering, susceptible to the cold clergyman moonlighting as a gravedigger.

Insincere, inclined to run away flyweight fights furious, raging, hanging on a rope person who enjoys the fruits of anything.

Faithless pagan priestest finishes unruly fracas, forgoes enclosed seat in theatre, flags taxi-cab......fuck off frump !

See Adrian,
That's what happens when you dono' ALL the facts of a particular
situation.. You talk out of line,
Because associated facts are unknown to you..

Yes there is a GRACE forum for my poems..
and ..Why?

A few years ago here on then OFFBEAT
A very nice poster by name'
'MOI' who wrote here
And STILL writes here occasionally ... seemed to like my poems,
So much so that SHE ever so kindly suggested making a forum for them for me.

Moi being expert at this type of thing (where I am not)
went ahead and did so..
Indeed it was a great compliment to me
that someone thought so much of what I wrote would do so!

So what you were told by your friends>
that I -myself - had the gall and self importance to form a forum
for my own poems simply isn't true...

So....

Please leave apology ... resting on little silver tray... on polished mahogany hall table:)

WORD ... It's all we have out here. There is no tone
of voice or expression of any sort for other's to try
and grasp the mean or intent behind our using them.
I've had a few others tell me I upset them and I am
very grateful they chose to tell me. Some will be upset
and not share with us why, but instead discontinue speaking
(writing) with us or worse yet, they will follow us to further
be rude to us out here for the world to see.
If we have any wisdom or maturity at all we wouldn't let
things end on such a sour note, but instead try to reason
through our disagreements and when it comes to a
decision to walk away ... we could do it more peacefully
and without such malice .. simply letting go of the grudges.
You Sir post with such brilliance. You show us every
emotion known to man. I only wish you weren't so mad
and displayed such a desire to really cut deeply into anothers
being as you do and I wish you didn't hold onto grudges
so that you may always have a place to return when you feel
like taking your bad day out on another who most likely had
never intended to upset you in the first place.
Those words you shared up there so contradict each of
the others. If only you didn't dare be more honest. If only it
wasn't such a game to you ... all this hiding and secretiveness
you seem to thrive on. I don't wish to offend, but I've seen
enough to know how it will probably play out.
Regrets & Peace Regardless and Please try to surprise me
with your response ... or just ignore and don't reply. Thanks
PS, we all BLEED red and you've no idea what other's go
through or what harm you may actually bestow upon others
when they aren't smart enough to just ignore you. That blood
quickly turns black when puddles hit the floor ... ever seen it?

The shade of the sun does not belong where the nights miss love

Robbing hearts spilling invisible tears all over the sheets in the dark

And the days only grow stark weeds that breed such bitterness

Where time bends men over with only the taste of lifes dust in their veins

The granite hearts shatter with ease upon this feather filled anvil

As shackled faces continue to swim in this empty well

Keep yourself hidden, huh, but not your opinions ?.........

There are very few people that are unfortunately capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions.

Prejudice is a great time saver. You can form your own cynical opinions without having to get the facts.
