The 30 days term.

How the hell do you think you can enforce that 30 days term? The Author of a work is normally in his/her rights to do whatever with the work he/she wants, including but not limited to: republishing, selling, relicensing. The rights over the published work here are NOT yours when it is posted here. The work which is published here is copyrighted by the Author, not by you. Therefore i don't see why it is your job to search for any copyright infringement. With the 30 days rule, you reduce the rights of the Author over the work in an extend that he/she has not got any normal rights over his/her work for 30 days. He/she may not even publish it on his/her own website. This sickens me. It is a common practice in magazines, but Authors who publish their work in such a magazine get paid for publishing their work in contrast to the practice on this site.
