Anyone knows what’s the license of the content of this forum? The disclaimer doesn’t say anything, so I suppose the content belong to the person who write it. I just wonder if it’s freely copiable or not.
I’m not stealing content. I just took notes of some basic info and was wondering if it’s easier to just copy and paste.
It’s personal so I shouldn’t worry, but I thought I might put it on github instead.
In my opinion changes should be announced in a “push” way and it should be clear what was changed. So I think E-Mail would be a good way.
Otherwise every user has to poll and diff by themselves on a regular basis. To me that doesn’t make sense.
Also I very highly doubt that the passage is valid according to Swiss law. If you assume access to the website means consent to the terms, how could they be viewed without accessing the website?
While I don’t expect radical changes that I would not accept, to me that passage still shows a mindset I don’t like. The idea that you can just change whatever you like and it is automatically accepted by accessing the website, without any prior notice and expecting the users to poll for changes themselves is ridiculous in my opinion.
So, long story short, I would welcome an E-Mail highlighting changes (if it’s not just spelling or grammar). The E-Mail should be sent some days before the new terms take effect.
The gold solution would probably be to show changes to the users when they
access the site and let them accept the changes. But if there’s no support for this in the software, I don’t think it’s worth the effort to implement this.
Personally I can also live with an announcement in this thread. But I wonder it works that way in Swiss law. Maybe a lawyer can chime in (@Yanikuza aren’t you a lawyer?).
This might be interesting (but seems to be targeted for e-commerce):
