a symbol for sharing

Legal writing professors are among the most generous of educators, freely sharing their ideas, opinions, and teaching materials via their organizations' listservs and the Legal Writing Institute's IdeaBank.

From one of our podium brethen comes another idea for indicating one's willingness to share materials, the "konomark." According to Professor Eric Johnson at Prawfsblawg, the konomark (pictured above, a graphic pineapple in a circle) is a symbol one can add to one's web site or blog to indicate to others that to borrow materials posted there, all they need do is e-mail and ask permission.
