I am looking for a good way to publish images as copyleft. The current state of the art in licensing non-software seems to be creative commons, but its copyleft is so weak, that I don’t see how it protects the end users’ freedom. To be more precise, here is how I perceive the legal effects (please correct me if I am wrong):
we are currently preparing a major update to PDFReaders.org, adding:
a more appealing and cleaner “home”-page, with one recommendation for the auto-detected platform
Free pdf reader recommendations for mobile platforms
Free pdf browser plugin recommmendations
BUT, we need some help with gathering/verifying information, deciding what to recommend…
Thanks to Hugo, for finding a bug in the version 0.2 with non-[.de|com] domains. Should be fixed now. Get the new version on my blog, as usual.
I decided to rewrite the script.
only one 5-line function from another script is used, the rest is original code under CC0 / Public Domain
Amazon code is cleaner, should produce less false-positive replacements (in theory 😉 )
Support for Libri.de / Bookzilla.de is added. Any and all links to Libri are replaced with links to Bookzilla. Actions on Libri.de itself are also “transferred”.
I have uploaded a userscript that you can use to support FSFE when buying at Amazon. Automatic support for redirecting from libri.de to bookzilla.de is planned, aswell as any other affiliate programs FSFE might take part in.
In contrast to the AffiliateFox-Plugin, the userscript is compatible with non-Mozilla browsers. But it works on those, too, in case you prefer to install something where you can see the source, before installing it 😉

I have posted a lengthy answer on Bernhard’s blog, why I don’t think “product” is a suitable term. What are your thoughts on this? Reply here or on Bernhards’ blog!
