Every so often a website will take my blog posts and start publishing them. They make it look like I’m a guest writer for their site. (This happens to a lot of bloggers.)
No link, no traffic to my blog. Just using my name as a byline isn’t giving me credit, it’s making it look like I work for them.
That’s just theft of my copyrighted material.
Can I start publishing entire New York Times stories on my site for free, without asking? Even if I include the byline of the reporter? Of course not.
If you want to quote me, that’s great. If you want to use my content to grow your business, let’s work out a deal. I’d love to work with you.
