If you are interested in copying portions of the text, please leave a comment for the author to contact you. Be professional and respectful and do not simply scrape an entire good essay for your own blog. This is stealing and it's a copyright infringement, which is illegal. Some of our blogging team is retired and rich and just might turn it over to their attorneys. We've just discovered a blogger who has scraped post after post from our site. Not at all cool.

  1. I have an attorney-to-be- in the family, but I am neither rich or retired. :-)

    However, I really do not care for people to snag our posts and use them without permission. Shame on you.

  2. Wow, I'm sorry to hear about this! I'd fear for my own blog, but... well... its not like I get that many views anyway.

    I really hope this information stops the scrapers in their tracks. Good luck!

  3. That's definitely uncool. It's just bad manners. I'm sorry you had that happen to you.

  4. This seems like something you shouldn't even have to say. Wow.

  5. The thieving little toerag. Quite sickening really.

  6. I recommend Susan Brushaber if you need an attorney to review your contracts, or anything else related to publishing:


  7. I have set my reprint fee at $200. If you have my post on your blog, I'm ready to be paid! Feel free to contact me.

  8. I think we need a blog post about these comments! LOL. Take that you toerag!
