If you are a frequent reader of my blog then you noticed that over the last months the mix of topics that I covered with my posts increased. Some might even got a bit disturbed by this.My blog was over the last few months “hijacked” by Internet and Search Engine Marketing related topics. The posts about ANSI and ASCII Text Art, Scene Art, the Demoscene, Wikipedia and deviantArt suddenly became a second priority.Hey this Blog is supposed to be about the art and the fun stuff and not business.I have good new though. All the business related stuff, or at least most of it, will not continue here because it found a new home.I am a Blogger at ReveNews.com since July 2006 because of a personal invitation by Wayne Porter, who is one of the co-founders of ReveNews.com.The invitation to blog at ReveNews, which is a well respected News Source in the Internet Marketing Industry and Winner of the Marketing Sherpa “Best Blog” Award in 2006, was a great honor for me and I really appreciated it. Visit my Blog at ReveNews.com and join the discussions.Cheers,Carsten aka Roy/SAC

The transformation happened slowly but steadily during the last 2-3 months. No, it is not my intent to convert the blog! Okay, now am I really getting to the Text Art news which I did promise. I made an important decision last weekend. I decided to release all my ANSI and ASCII Text Art, as well as “scene” related pixel art into the public domain. Yes, you heard right, I did give up the copyright, which I did own, on my art pieces. Most Text Artists or “scene” artists in general I know don’t care much about their copyright and have no problem with the fact that their stuff gets copied over and over again. Most are even happy about that, because it proves that they are respected as artists and that people like their stuff. The problem is, that this good intentional attitude does not change existing copyright laws. If you don’t specify somewhere the copyright status of your art piece,[…]
