I'd just like to make a request/suggestion regarding copyright/licensing
of the website in general.
I think we should not implement any license that would make it possible
for someone legally to, for example, copy all or most of www.tei-c.org
to another host and mirror it with or without changes, with no
permission from us. At the moment, most of the Web pages are protected
by copyright (under US law at any rate), even though they do not bear a
formal copyright statement.
It would make sense to me to have a small general copyright statement on
the home page to the effect that "Unless otherwise indicated, content on
this website is copyright © The Text Encoding Initiative and may not be
reproduced without permission. Content in certain sections of the site
is subject to specific licensing; see page footers for details."
Is that reasonable?
