Announce Your Comment Policy with Comment License WordPress Plugin

Its been a controversy in the blogosphere for awhile now about who owns comments, although I am not getting into this in big detail, but I wanted to point out that there is a plugin that lets you let people know that your comment maybe used by the owner of the blog with attribution to you (your name and link). A blog post, posted by Jeff Chandler on Weblog Tools Collection really got a conversation going about this.

I currently am using a plugin on my blog called Comment License which will let you tell your commentators that you have a policy for posting comments. Some have made it say that no spamming is allowed, no foul language and/or that the comment maybe used in attribution by the owner. You just have to download it, upload it to the plugin directory inside WordPress, activate it and find the Comment License page; you’ll have it up and running on your blog in no time!

I’ve been using this plugin for awhile now and it still displays my comment policy right above the Submit button. If you think this plugin would be useful for your blog, go out and get it either from the Wordpress Plugin Repository or Alex King’s site.
