Fighting the Copyright Thieves

    April 11, 2006

If you want to learn what you can do to protect your rights to the original content you post on your blog…

Lorelle VanFossen has written an excellent guide on What Do You Do When Someone Steals Your Content:

Just because information is on the Internet does not mean it’s “free” to take and steal. Information, images, graphics, designs, and photographs, all are protected under copyright laws and are known as intellectual property. While it is nice to think that everything on the Internet is or should be free, for the most part it is. It is free to read, look at, wonder about, and even write about. It is not free to steal, make money from it, or use it as your own.
