OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA)
We are building OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) to bring together like- minded individuals from all over the world, professionals from diverse horizons – writers, painters, scientists, teachers, thinkers. What unites us is our collective will to look at the world we live in using the prism of critical thought and analysis but also of creativity. We firmly believe that we have an individual and collective mission to make our society a better place; we have taken the pledge of do our best to achieve that goal. OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) promotes openness and transparency by giving individuals opportunities to share thoughts and ideas through the prism of poetical creations and connect through creative undertakings, and certain principles guide OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) in pursuing these goals. Achieving these principles should be constrained only by limitations of law, technology, and evolving social norms. We therefore establish these Principles as the foundation of the rights and responsibilities of those within the OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) Service.
- Freedom to Critique
People should have the freedom to critique the world they inherit and inhabit, irrespective of social and political connotations and implications, with the objective of making the world a better environment for them and for future generations.
- Ownership and Control of Intellectual Property
People should own their intellectual property (IP), namely their creative undertakings. They should have the freedom to share it with anyone they want and take it with them anywhere they want, including removing it from the OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) Service. People should have the freedom to decide with whom they will share their IP, and to exercise privacy controls whenever available to protect those choices. Those controls, however, are not capable of limiting how those who have received information may use it, particularly outside the OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) Service.
- Fundamental Equality
Every Person - whether individual, organization, or other entity - should have representation and access to distribution and information within the OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) Service, regardless of the Person's primary activity. There should be a single set of principles, rights, and responsibilities that should apply to all People using the OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) Service.
- Social Value
People should have the freedom to build trust and reputation through their creative undertakings, and should not have their presence on the OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) Service removed for reasons other than those described in OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA)'s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
- Fundamental Service
People should be able to use OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) for free to establish a creative presence, connect with others, and share IP with them. Every Person should be able to use the OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) Service regardless of his or her level of participation or contribution.
- Common Welfare
The rights and responsibilities of OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) and the People that use it should be described in a Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, which should not be inconsistent with these Principles.
- Transparent Process
OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) should publicly make available information about its purpose, plans, policies, and operations. OUR POETRY ARCHIVE (0PA) should have a process of notice and comment to provide transparency and encourage input on amendments to these Principles or to the Rights and Responsibilities.
