Copyright: Silence Means Yes?

Mildly annoyed this evening.

Went to see True Grit (which would have been decent enough, except for the douchebag a few seats down who had to comment on every action, scene, line of dialog, and event). Get home, get the hot water for my dinner nuking, and open my email box.

I have a Nexus PM. A few days ago, I got PM'd by someone asking to translate NCCS into Russian. I've been busy, and haven't replied yet.

Today, I get this:

"I asked you for permission to publish your fashion on Russian resources, but not received an answer. I was sure that your excellent work will be popular with Russian gamers, so I took it upon myself to make it available on our website: (URL removed to not front traffic to them)"

So... I have the audacity to not spend my every waking moment answering PMs... and silence means acquiescence?

Oh, how I do so love the fucking internet.

Worst part: I was going to say yes, because when he said translate, I thought Nexus. Nowhere that I can recall was a totally different web site mentioned.

Now, I'm less inclined. But, of course, this is the internet; so if I say no they'll just rip it off anyway.

Edit: I just checked the original PM, and it came yesterday. Apparently twenty-four hours is the limit of copyright. My bad.

  1. That's crazy that he couldn't wait one day. I guess you should be flattered that people are so excited about your work that they are this eager to share it. Still, I can't condone his actions.
