Articles are being pulled from article directories, either manually or via RSS and software...and they are stripping out the resource box!
This gives the website owner all of the content (and resulting Adsense or affiliate money) and the author gets nothing...zilch...nada.
This is immoral, devious and unethical. If I could make internet laws, this would be nothing but plain old theft!
There is a new, completely not-for-profit website that will soon be launched that will have a section devoted to listing these websites.
So here is my problem...
A very few webmasters are just plain ignorant and don't know that this is a bad thing. So will placing these websites in the list be, in a sense, a violation of anyones rules? The page will be for "people using articles without resource info"...so it's not libel or slander or anything. It's just a list of these sites.
We will obviously make an attempt or two to communicate with these website owners before placing them on the list.
Question: Would we be wrong to do this?
Question 2: Would we be in line for legal action taken against us?
There's really only one reason we will be doing this. We want to have at least some incentive for webmasters to NOT do this and to thwart this trend that is only growing.
