A positive conclusion re my ‘cease and desist’ post yesterday.
[…] WSUN Technologies does not tolerate copyright infringement of any kind. The violating user has been banned and their rss.xml has been deleted from our list of feeds to be syndicated by us. We sincerely apologize for any aggravation this may have caused. We will gladly delete any posted article if the respective owner wishes for us to do so.
I appreciate their prompt action to sort this out.
I have to add, though, that glancing through their blog again just now, I recognize a couple of posts from other bloggers which are in my RSS reader from their own blogs where, as with my example, the complete content is posted on the WSUNTech blog with no attribution at all.
I doubt those guys know about this or, if they do, perhaps they don’t mind. Fair enough if so. But no attribution? I’d be very surprised indeed if these two bloggers would be happy with that. While neither Robert’s nor Nathan’s blog has Creative Commons licenses shown, Robert’s does have a clear copyright statement.
WSUNTech, I think you need to take a very close look at what your users are posting on your blog.
