You Own Your Copyright
A fundamental Blogit principle is that writers always have complete
control of their work, including owning the copyright, and can do whatever they
want with it.
Protecting Your Copyright
Your work is copyrighted as soon as you write it, and here is how Blogit
can help protect your copyright:
- Since Blogit is available only to paying
subscribers, your work cannot be copied by everyone on the Internet.
- When posting your work on Blogit, add a
"Copyright (c) (Year) (Your Name). All rights reserved." notice to your work (remember to put in the year and your name).
This clearly states your copyright.
- Every blog entry on Blogit includes the date and time, which shows
that you were the first to write it.
Reporting Copyright Infringement
If you see content on Blogit that appears to infringe
someone else's copyright, here is how to report it:
If you own the copyright, please submit
a brief statement as described in the Notice and Procedure for Making Claims
of Copyright Infringement.
- If you do not own the copyright, please contact the
owner or a representative of the owner and point them to this page, so they
can submit the statement. For instance, if the original content is on a web site,
most sites have easily-accessible contact links.
This process helps us ensure that we comply with the Digital Millenium
Copyright Act and do not remove content that does not infringe copyright, e.g.
content that is public domain or which the copyright owner
has given permission to be copied.
