[liberationtech] Networking Democracy? New Media Innovations in Participatory Politics - Cluj, Romania

Regarding the question about China and internet control:

I am in the very final stages of completing a PhD thesis on the question whether there has been a form of stem cell controversy in China, and I have looked at this in three different arenas, policymaking, mass media and public perception. As part of that I have been working on the internet as a new forum of public and relatively free speech in China. I have closely followed up on the developments in internet censorship and internet activism in China in the last two years.

If this is of interest, this is my contact: Kerstin Klein, London School of Economics and Political Science, email: k.s.klein at lse.ac.uk.

This is a bigger set of issues than the question you originally asked.  The author of any work (including comments on a napkin) holds the full copyright in their work unless they relinquished some or all of their rights.  You are really asking about any implied license granted to publishers/editors to do certain things in the absence of any explicit license.  I'm happy to discuss this more with you off list.
