I don't know if we've got a leg to stand on.
Isn't all material submitted here the property of ATS.
I agree ATS provides the medium for great minds to pool their thoughts and create awesome new concepts in many scientific, religious, political and technical fields, but none of that intellectual property can be claimed for ourselves, once it is submitted on ATS.

Hey, that's my book, although the story line wasn't the most exciting, the lessons were something to live by.
Ha ha Sorry Storm Dancer, it's the quick and the dead around here.
...It seems as if everyone is making money off of us and our ideas but us. I dont mean the ATS site administrators but i mean everyone. It seems very disingenuous for all of these people to crowd source their knowledge and sell it as their own opinions and ideas. Thats kind of the opposite of what i hope everyone stands for.
