Protecting Your Intelectual Property

Protecting The Rights Of Others Too

Friday the 13thIf you have a website or a blog, do you wonder if your words and artwork are safe from thieves? Sadly there are many who steal bits and pieces of the work of others and claim it as their own. I’ve even found complete articles of mine posted on someone else’s website with “By their name” at the top of the page. It amazes me that people think they won’t be found out.

Every now and then you should spend a day doing a Google search for your name, recent article titles, or graphic images. My attorney recommends you do this every quarter. When you find someone has stolen your work, email them and call them on it. Most will respond with ok I’m sorry. Some will simply take down the work. Others will change their open forum to a members only forum and you won’t be able to tell if they’re still stealing your work or not. And some will be down right belligerent and ignore you or write you a nasty letter in response. At that point you will need to decide how irritated and angry you are about the theft.

There are some tips to putting the law on your side. I’ve added some information and helpful ideas on my own Terms & Conditions pages, specifically a new page entitled Image Credits.

The new page also covers how to help others work from being stolen without credit. From copyright language to image searches, I hope this information is helpful to others who are concerned with the proliferation of stolen work. Whither it’s yours, or someone elses.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Wands

Knight Of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

It’s ok to rest for a time on your journey. It’s easy to become overwhelmed with information and needing time to absorb it all and take in what feels right for your path. Trust your instincts, stop for a moment and look around your current position. Consider all the things you have learned and gone through in the past 3 months. Then you’ll be able to determine which way is the best way for your travels.


Additional Insight:

Sometimes it is better to stop and take stock of your surroundings. Constantly moving without reflection can lead you down the wrong path in the maze and cause you to backtrack, wasting time and effort. Don’t zig-zag your way along to escape the hard things, or the issues that are hard to face. All you will end up doing, is making those things seem bigger than they are and sometimes they will grow bigger because you have refused to look at them. So take some time today, to stop, take in a deep breath and close your eyes. Align yourself with the Divine force in your life and review what you have learned, take in what rings true to you and consider how to apply that new knowledge and wisdom to your path.

Thank You For The Feedback

Helping to Improve Information & Understanding

Yesterday I posted a new article ‘What is Paganism / A Basic Description of Paganism & Pagan Metaphysics‘. I was astounded by the attention and wonderful emails and messages I received about the article. And many of you had some great ideas for improving the information. 

Because of your great suggestions, I’ve updated the article to include information about the Burning Times, the growth of our religion, Covens, clans and alike, what hiving is and a few more things.

Thank you all who wrote and thank you for the kind words of support and encouragement!
