As the blogging phenomenon expands, copyright concerns become quite important. Technology makes it really easy to copy, modify and share information, whether we talk about text, images, audio or video. The problem is that the vast majority of people do not have a clear understanding of the Copyright Law, which might result in illegal and costly mistakes.

  1. Respected Timethief,

    how can i remove “Possibly related posts: (automatically generated)” at the bottom of my any blog posts.

    Something there are such articles which you don’t want to link with your own work due to any reason. Your help will be appreciated.

  2. Timethief, thanks for your information to me. Very good. I am a newbie and only 1 month blogging. I’m an Artist., come from Viet nam.
    Please to meet you!
    Best regard!

    I have no further help to offer you. All I know is what I have published. I think if you need more help than this that you will have to consult an lawyer who specializes in copyright law.

  4. Timethief, thanks for this wellspring of information. I don’t think many people when they start writing up a blog consider the possibility that someone might plagiarize their work. You given this blogger much to consider and read. Thank you. :)

  7. Timethief – I’m a new-newbie, 60 + yrs, but only 6 weeks blogging. For the past few weeks, I’ve been following your blogging helps & hints, (promoting/increase traffic), but now I’m looking for wording to put on a page, that I haven’t created yet, probably to be called, Copyright/Disclaimer/etc, or something like that. And I’ve noticed a few of these type pages that seem to be the same – yours & the sacred path – ? Is that wording available some where / some how; as it seems to cover what I’d like to say. (or maybe it’s copyrighted and I can’t use it?) thanks, Kate
