Watch What You Write - Don’t Copy Others’ Words
Copyright infringement and plagiarism have become prominent issues on the Internet these days. Much of this occurs because bloggers and business owners, who have not been active in the writing world before, have little knowledge of what constitutes copyright infringement.
I’ve even had writers, in a class I was teaching, express surprise because everything on the Internet wasn’t public domain. You also have the problem of copyright laws in different countries.
Laura Spencer, at Business and Blogging, has a great post, with many resources about this topic. Check out Keeping It Legal - The Inside Scoop on Plagiarism and Blogging.
You’ll want to be “in the know” about these topics so you don’t get into trouble with your business blogs or writing blogs.
