There are always people who think they have to "quote" complete texts from other websites. Sometimes they ask, usually they just copy. But it has also happened to us that they ask and then react angrily or even abusive to a negative answer. We are fundamentally against copying our texts. We have good reasons for this, which we believe are easy to understand for everyone. We would like to explain these reasons here.

However, in the meantime we have fundamentally changed our opinion on some things. We have put the whole website, which means all content, texts as well as pictures, under Public Domain (CC0) licence. In other words, anyone can copy anything in whole or in part without crediting showcaves.com as the author. This does not invalidate the good reasons above, but we are no longer annoyed by the use and do nothing about it. We are simply no longer interested. Life has become much easier.
