Most publications — online and/or in print — assert a kind of temporary ownership of commissioned pieces; after that embargo, the non-exclusive rights to those works revert to the author. It’s at that point that I repost my work for other outlets (features, interviews, essays and such) here on Musoscribe. But occasionally there exists a publication that doesn’t follow this industry standard. In the case of, they assert ownership of writers’ work in perpetuityno, really — and don’t allow it to be republished elsewhere.

I found that out only after I had written eight pieces for them. Of course I stopped writing for them as soon as I discovered that policy, but in the process I signed away seven essays and an interview.

Anyway, here’s links to them.
