Blog TOS Copyright Infringement: Netiquette Reviewed
More and more I’m finding my posts are being reprinted on the internet. I have set up internet search alerts looking for references to my material and if it’s out there I will find it.
Although I’m flattered that anyone would consider my material worthy of publishing, I wish to remind all concerned the following.
My TOS specifically states that my material cannot be republished unless a proper link is provided back to the original source. Neither can my material be used for commercial purposes.
Obviously most people understand this and it’s unfortunate that I have to bring this up. But a few out there are scraping my information without proper attribution and for commercial gain. That is not allowed and is considered intellectual property theft.
Sorry for having to mention this and thank you for your anticipated cooperation. Cheers!
