Not to be too much of a downer on this, but in order for the courts to
intervene, there really has to be a significant amount of damages (ISTR
something about the round yellow smiley face and possibly Mr Natural). When
I have stumbled across misuse of my web postings, a simple email usually
gets the writing deleted, or a proper attribution amended (and an apology).
After the first batch of these, I started adding a usage statement at the
bottom of every web page that I write, and I haven't had a lot of problems
since then.
