Over the past couple of weeks, a few accidental trackback alerts have revealed a blogger has been copying content from Thought Capital – and quite a few other blogs – without attribution.
As noted by the Creative Commons license on the sidebar:
This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 License.
So, you are welcome to republish Thought Capital content as long as you don’t:
- claim it as your own by failing to name the original author;
- use it commercially; or
- alter it.
A link back to the original post would be polite, too…
I’m reluctant to give the plagiarist traffic or ‘link-cred’, but if you wish you can find the faux blog My 1983 at booknn.cn. (That link will take you to the results of a Whois search.)
