Take Heed. Content on the internet is not in the public domain.
Mr. Myers' latest email is a succint and on point message to all ethical and honorable people, who think that content available on the internet is free for the taking.
I would copy and paste his cogent message here but that would be exactly what he was talking about.
If you are on his list, then you should read it soon. Take it to heart. Believe that repercussions eventually catch up to the people who victimize others and their hard work. I have found that the longer it takes for that to happen, the worse it is when the "spit hits the fan" as Mr. Myers says.
Many people mistake Google as the "god" of rulemaking for the internet. Some day you may find that there are copyright laws in all countries, and they could all come down on your head some day. That would be a heavy crown to wear.
So, read Paul Myers piece or, maybe he will post it here as a public service.
He always says to send you here: http://www.talkbiz.com/?page=1
So, go there and get on his list, especially if you are a newbie ... and even moreso if you are an idiot.
