In recent weeks, there have been increased reports of post thievery being confronted by nail polish and beauty bloggers. I have a link to a useful article dealing with copyright issues: 10 Big Myths about Copyright Explained. Brad Templeton discusses popular misconceptions regarding copyright. He refers to laws that are part of the U.S. legal system and those that are internationally accepted regarding use of materials on the internet.
For those of you who publish blogs, I recommend bookmarking the link. If you come across your content outside your domain, it would be helpful to provide a link to this article along with your request to have your text and photos pulled. I really hope you never need to refer to it for that purpose.
10 Big Myths about Copyright Explained is a good resource to help each of us properly adhere to copyright laws when posting on blogs or forums. The article is written in an accessible style, while referring to individual laws. There is also a summary that concisely targets each point for clarity.
The article may offer new information to some of you and be a refresher for others. If you have school age children or teenagers in your life, please share the information and talk about the copyright issue.
