MESSAGE TO WEB DESIGNERS:
PLEASE CREATE YOUR
USING YOUR OWN WORDS, NOT MINE!
Being such a huge
website makes this body of work a target for
copy/pasting by amateur web designers who refuse to
take the time to research and write data in their
own words. These people think stealing an authors
work is meaningless, quick and easy to duplicate,
and that there will be no ramifications. Deliberate
copyright infringement is offensive. Plagiarized
content is unacceptable.
Copy/pasting info from
someone else, apart from being unethical and
unprofessional, can potentially seriously damage the
body of work that has taken so very long to create
and present in concise and easily understood form.
Several technical reasons include search engine
robots and ranking. Another reason is that web
surfers are turned off by having to read identical
duplicate content over and over that is posted on

people think it is ok as they honestly have no clue

also understand that others practice this deceitful
action knowing full well what they are doing.
Some people steal entire
pages, whilst others take paragraphs. Some people
copy/paste info and apply it to imitation machines
or completely different products.

copy/pasted to another website.
1) 99% of
offenders apologize and remove the stolen info
2) The 1% that
refuse to cease and desist,
will then have the option to legally
explain to a lawyer why they are knowingly committing copyright infringement by refusing to remove it after being politely requested
to do so.
be noted that I am not American and
but if you refuse to play nice
and be an asshole, there are consequences.
Trust me, there are plenty of
greedy lawyers with equally
greedy clients who will
