Concern for copyright infringement was clearly not the motivation for his request. What is there to copyright? He provided a basic key remapping solution which he may or may not have even originated. It's not as if he reinvented the wheel.

You may give him the benefit of the doubt if you like but he is
condescending, threatened by other knowledgeable users, constantly
finds fault or nitpicks at others messages to show that he has
superior knowledge, and his attitudes and behavior caused a lot of
havoc on the Blindtech list awhile ago. He doesn't care if his
messages are copyrighted. He just wants the glory of people knowing
that he knew an answer.

Hi all,
I don't know the gentleman at all, Carlos, and you may have good reason
to complain about his arrogance et al. However, since I don't know
him, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. Apparently, he is
conscious of the fact that his posts are copyrighted, as per U.S.
copyright law. He is asking that you cite his post properly. this
might seem arrogant because none of us do this. He is, however, within
his rights to do so.
Citing information properly is one of those things which is ignored
most of the time by list members all over the Net. However, it is the
ultimate rationale behind the prohibition against cross-posting. The
right thing to do, if you find something on a list which isn't an
announcement and isn't meant for wide distribution is to ask permission
before reposting it. Do people do this? No, they don't but they
should. Is anyone caught and fined or arrested for violation of
copyright law referring to Internet postings, no. It's usually too
small a violation and just goes under the radar.
ICORS makes particular note of copyright law when applied to list
postings in its rules and regs. We who've been listowners for St.
Johns University's SJUVM and later with ICORS are familiar with the
copyright regs.
Now, This Free Tech guy may or may not be arrogant, as I say, I don't
know him, but the copyright laws are a fact. He just may be particular
about his own posts. Anal, probably, arrogant, maybe.
It is good info, though. I've saved it. Have a great day all.
