Today I found a blog that re-posted 9 of my articles without permission. Last week, I found two sites that were reprinting every newsletter I send out - again without permission. I typically find at least 1-2 of these types of content "borrowers" a week. But really, they are stealing. One site was even going so far as to post my copyright statement at the bottom of their post! Unfortunately, many people believe that simply because an article or image has been posted to the Web makes it public domain - free to copy. But don't just take my word for it, read this article on LLRX - a Web site for legal professionals on technology and the law Bloggers Beware: Debunking Nine Copyright Myths of the Online World. The bottom line: Ask permission before you copy anything. Don't assume that because you credit the source or you can't find a copyright notice or it's on the Web or sent by email that it's okay to copy it. But if you want to link to the Web Design / HTML site at About.com, that would be great!
