Unshelved comic strip for 2/27/2008

More on using Unshelved strips

I seem to have both excited and confused our readers with my post about putting Unshelved to work for you. Allow me to clarify.

For many years we've had this page explaining how to go about using our strips for your library, school, or what have you. I should have just pointed to it. Nothing has really changed, I'm just encouraging y'all, and letting you know that we're being very liberal about noncommercial use.

There is one more step we could take, which we haven't, which is to adopt this Creative Commons license. Other webcomics, most notably my beloved XKCD, have done so. And we may yet. But we are busy arguing out the pros and cons. I am "Pro" so I thought it couldn't hurt to remind Mr. "Con", who shall remain nameless, the value we already get in letting folks use our strips.

But I was tired and in pain (minor skateboarding incident) when I wrote that post, and every time I tried to tell you the words just came out wrong. So I have to say "I love you" in a song. Or something like that.
