Completion of resource[edit source]

The resource is rather incomplete. I wonder if User:Mikec was scared off by the copyvio row. Anyway, these were the sources of the original material planned for transfer. The user contributions indicate that he hardly edited again after User:JWSchmidt added the copyvio tags to every page in the project. --McCormack 15:24, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Module 1: The French Empire in North America

Module 2: Canadian Society during the French Regime

Module 3: The Conquest and the start of British Rule

Module 4: Early Stages of Parliamentary Government

Module 5: Quebec and Confederation

Module 6: Industrial Development (1896-1929

Module 7: Contemporary Quebec

Discussion of possible copyright violation[edit source]

The page was tagged in February 2007 as a possible copyright violation. However it appears to have been moved here by the original author and re-released under the GFDL. See discussions below. Case therefore closed and tags removed. --McCormack 15:15, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Response from Michael Carley[edit source]

As you can see since 1998 ( thanks to evidence from web.archive.org) I have had a web presence for my original material:

1998 Baldwin Cartier School Board

I developed the materials and was given authority (ftp+password) to upload them to this site. Example: http://web.archive.org/web/19980121172227/www.baldwin.qc.ca/history/

"Prepared by Michael Carley and provided by Baldwin Cartier School Board"

2002 LESTER B PEARSON SCHOOL BOARD

I developed the materials and was given authority (ftp+password) to upload them to this site.

Since my retirement I have developed and added new material to this site.

Example: http://web.archive.org/web/20020603020351/http://www.lbpsb.qc.ca/~history/

1999 QESN

I developed the materials and was given authority (ftp+password) to upload them to this site. Example: http://web.archive.org/web/19991114032916/http://www.qesn.meq.gouv.qc.ca/history/toolkit.htm#QUESTIONS

"These multiple choice questions were constructed by Michael Carley,

Social Studies consultant at the Baldwin Cartier School Board."


QESNRECIT and LEARN reformatted them and removed my upload authority. The latter adding a © symbol to its page.

2002 QESNRECIT

if you would like to contribute materials to the site, please send an email to Christine Truesdale at ctruesdale @ qesnrecit.qc.ca

I developed the materials and sent them to this site. Example: http://web.archive.org/web/20020414142042/www.qesnrecit.qc.ca/socialsciences/cycles45/frameset.html

"These review lessons were created and developed by Michael Carley Social Studies consultant at the Lester B. Pearson School Board."

2005 LEARN


They moved material to this new site.© 2007 LEARN - All Rights Reserved was added.

http://www.learnquebec.ca/en/content/curriculum/social_sciences/sec_history/approaches/index.html

"These review lessons were created and developed by Michael Carley Social Studies consultant at the Lester B. Pearson School Board."


As you can see from the chain of evidence I am the original author of this material. At all time (except after I sent it to QESNRECIT and LEARN) I was in control of the material. I wrote,coded, uploaded, edited, and tested all the material. Collaborators (much like wiki) reviewed and edited within the original framework.

I do not know Bev White ( LearnQuebec) I gave QESN the material 5 years ago, and as you can see from the history of the use of the materials, how can they ask that they be credited for the content of this course, after I gave it to them and all they did was to format and host it. In their adult section they don't host it but simply link to it.


Finally to quote from your site:

"You acquire copyright automatically when you create an original work or other subject matter."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Copyright_FAQ#What_is_copyright.3F

"A copyright gives you the sole right to produce or reproduce your work"

"All work produced by employees of the government as part of their work is public domain."

I appreciate that you have volunteered to work on the site and are placed in a difficult position when a third party who places a © symbol on their page requests its removal, however the evidence I have presented shows that under all the circumstances stated I retain the right to reproduce my work. I let them use it, not coypyright it.

This material can be licensed freely as Bev White ( LearnQuebec) does not own the copyright, and as I created this original work, I agree to do so. http://www.lbpsb.qc.ca/~history/
