New Rules, Old Rules?

Since we're trying to make this something of a refugee camp for SD - should we consider new rules that would make the same thing less likely to happen? I'd love to hear the SD mods' ideas on making the community more "copyright friendly." A quarter of a comic instead of half? A minimum of reviewing or comments so it's more like a legal review with fair use instead of simply posting comics to read?

At the very least we should probably try to find a backup of the old rules and post them in the community front page, if anyone has them.

For random legality:

As much as I'm tempted to say 'joke 'em if they can't take a eff', the question really is about insanejournal's policies. Being _more_ friendly won't help all that much, as soon as someone gets a bug up their snoot.

a quarter would leave people unable to post anything after the companies put up their previews

Weren't the mods on LJ rewriting the rules anyway? I'm sure I read they were going to publish them next week - couldn't we have a look at them first, rather than start from scratch. Seems a shame to waste all their hard work!

Agreed. But I'm hanging to the hope that S_D might be resurrected, so perhaps we need not copy their ToS right away and just work it out amongst ourselves for now.

I've pimped this comm to so many places :D

What about friends-locking each post? It doesn't really solve the copyright problems, but it'll mean not everyone has the opportunity to d/l the images. I know snark is S_D's claim to fame, but I think we ought to say something in the ToS about reining in the wank. It's not worth it, honestly.

I think recent comic issues are more likely to cause bad mojo -- maybe we should be extra cautious about how much we post of those?

As far as mod input goes, I'm staying out of this.

I was wondering how any of this was in any way legal at all. It's kinda Chinese-dvd-vendory.
