Copyright and the web

I heard a radio programme on the ‘net today about poet Wendy Cope. Her poetry so charmed me, I immediately wanted to share it with others.
So I searched the net, and came across this article by her from the Guardian about copyright.
So, taking her advice about copyright and artists, if you’re interested too, I suggest you visit the page where she reads her poems aloud or visit the ABC radio national webpage where you can listen to her read her beautiful work.
If you like her work and think others might like it too, support this living artist and buy one of her books.
Being a well meaning soul who likes to share things with others, I feel somewhat chastened by her words. Being a performing artist I’m grateful to her for reminding me about the need to be respectful towards the intellectual property of others.
That said, check her out. She’s brilliant! Her witty aphorisms on love lost, unrequited, unrealised made me laugh and cry at the same time. You can hear these near the beginning of the programme on the ABC radio national website.
