Nelson could you please give exact guidelines for when, where, if and how its acceptable to post your work.
If you reproduce a schematic or diagram that I drew and
copyrighted, then it is appropriate to either ask permission
or provide a link to the location you got it from. At the very
least, it is appropriate to provide attribution for the diagram
so that someone looking at it can figure out where it came from
or who created it.

I believe this comes under the "fair usage" part of copyright
law, which allows quotation of parts of copyrighted work as
long as it is attributed.

If you redraw the schematic, changing or adding something,
then it starts belonging to you, although attribution to the
source of its parts is still appropriate.

Authors want exposure but they also want credit - they
want their work shown, but they also want their name on it.

Thanks Nelson for clarification. I think this is more than fair, and nobody should have a problem with it. Maybe a moderator might carve that statement in stone, by means of a permanent announcement?
Best regards: Holger

Great idea Hbarske.

Thanks Nelson, this was exactly what i was looking for.

Im new to this way of looking at your hobby work, in mech. engineering the rules are more simple. If you want something for yourself, patent it, else its free for all to use any way they please. The only reason i write my name on a mech. drawing, is for the user to have somewhere to go ask if something causes him problems or to give the other hobbyists a chance to give me feedback.

Everything is possible....to do the impossible just takes a little while longer.
