A Blogit service announcement: how to use text written by other authors
When using text by other authors, please post only a brief excerpt of the content (e.g. a paragraph) -- not most (or all) of the content -- using quotation marks to make it clear it's not your own work. Please include a link to the original page.
In most cases, this should qualify as "fair use" and ensure that you are not violating the original author's copyright. Here is a good description of copyright, including an explanation of "fair use": http://www.templetons.com/brad/copymyths.html
