|Feb-16-10|| ||whatthefat: I like Sveshnikov's namesake opening, but his views on assigning IP rights to players seem ludicrously impractical for a whole host of reasons. To name just a few: |
(1) How could it ever be reasonably enforced? Either top-flight games would have to be made confidential (i.e., the loss of chess's primary purpose, which is to entertain), or else players would simply not be permitted to play something played before and would be expected to be aware of all other players' rights. And how is a player sitting at Linares to be aware of an opening innovation made the week before in an obscure Open by a 1500 player, or in an online correspondence game?
(2) At what point in the game would copyright be applied? Since 1.e4 has been played before, can it no longer be played again? Or are we interested only in innovations from some arbitrary point onwards? If applied strictly, chess would very quickly dry up. Or is it okay to mimic another game so long as the entire score is not identical? The rule rather loses its effectiveness, but even in that case there are problems, e.g., what if the opponent walks into a 4 move checkmate? Can the aggressor deliver mate, or must they play something else? And what of transpositions?
(3) What is to prevent players from selling their rights to other players? Leading players could create monopolies on openings by enlisting large teams of seconds to play critical lines and then sell the rights on to the leading player.
|Feb-16-10|| ||Dravus: Royalties should be paid by media, not individual players (unless they are doing something commercial with it beyond competing in a regular tournament game), for reproducing a player's "unique" positions, I suppose.
You can listen to Elton John with friends, but if you use it at your ballet or dance studio, you have to pay a royalty.
A chess position has been likened to a box score, with no copyright. But it is quite easy to see how a composer should have protection for his composition should it be borrowed in a publication. But enforcement would be hard, and perhaps a player should be paid only $3 per game (or per position) per issue for its reproduction.|
|Feb-17-10|| ||offramp: He is a dead ringer for Roman Polanski.|
|Jun-16-10|| ||bharatiy: I got this link from Susan's blog. nice interview. http://www.scacchierando.net/dblog/...|
|Jul-14-10|| ||Tabanus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evgeny...
Latvian champion 2010 (as he was in 2003):
|Jul-25-10|| ||BIDMONFA: Evgeni Ellinovich Sveshnikov|
|Jul-26-10|| ||Tabanus: He was 5th yesterday in Miguel Najdorf Memorial (Poland) 17-25 July 2010:|
|Sep-27-10|| ||HeMateMe: When I saw this name in the Olympiad, I thought maybe its a common name in Russia, or, perhaps he is a cousin of the man who's name is on an opening...but it is the same Sveshnikov of old.|
Who is he playing for here?
|Apr-02-11|| ||Everett: This GM has one of the most straightforward opening repetoires in the history of the game.|
Opens e4 and plays the following against the 5 major responses:
Petrov Modern Attack
The first two fit together very well.
|Nov-03-11|| ||rapidcitychess: He's playing in the European team championship, apparently.|

|Feb-13-13|| ||wordfunph: "I can confidently say that the move 2.c3 has fed me and my family for almost 40 years."|
- GM Evgeni Sveshnikov
|Feb-11-14|| ||waustad: <HHM>He's often played for Latvia. There is also another player with the same last name on the 2010 team.
|Feb-11-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 64th birthday to GM Evgeni Sveshnikov.
<He maintains a unusual opinion, in that he is against the handing over the gamescores believing that the chessplayers should have the right to decide themselves what to do with them (e.g. write a book with exclusive gamescores) and not give future opponents unnecessary advantages.>
So does he mean the fans can't view the gamescores (only the results)?
|Jun-30-14|| ||offramp: I'd like to know what happens to chess gamescores. I never see them for sale on places like eBay. But people obtain and collect them. Where from?|
|Dec-15-14|| ||Conrad93: I have been playing 2. c3 for the past few months. Very few people are aware of the Na3-Nb5 idea, so I get lot of easy wins.|
Great player and a great writer! Definitely worth the 30 bucks I spend.
|Jul-08-15|| ||Penguincw: Sveshnikov is playing a match against Karpov!
|Jul-11-15|| ||redlance: Sveshnikov, is writing a book on openings for blitz. These games maybe a test of lines.|
|Nov-05-15|| ||sonia91: He switched to the Russian Chess Federation two days ago: https://ratings.fide.com/fedchange....|
|Feb-11-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: A very strange bird is the Pelikan
Its beak can hold more than its belly can.
Happy Birthday to GM Sveshnikov.
|Feb-11-16|| ||eternaloptimist: Happy birthday to GM Sveshnikov! It's great to see that he's still playing in tournaments & still playing at a very high level! He played Karpov last July in a rapid match & did pretty well considering he played Karpov. Of course Sveshnikov lost the match but he did get 1 win.: Karpov-Sveshnikov Rapid Match (2015)|
|Feb-03-17|| ||rickcarnes: Since Chess is considered a sporting event in some parts of the world and certainly a news event in others it would be difficult for Chess players to claim the exclusive right to the broadcast of their games. But reprinting them in books and magazines or use videos where there is commercial exploitation of their ideas should net them a royalty I do believe. At the very least the attribution of their games should be required. However, a copyright can only be assigned to a unique expression of an idea so the game copyrighted would have to be the first one using the specific moves outlined and any succeeding games that were exactly the same could not be copyrighted. Perhaps if Grandmasters had royalty streams of income there might be more and better players interested in the game. After all, that is the idea of copyright, to incentivize the creation of art.|
|Feb-05-17|| ||sonia91: He just won the Moscow Open veteran's event with 7.5/9 on tiebreak from an IM : http://www.chess-results.com/tnr260...|
