There's malice in wonderland! What do I mean by that? I mean, someone...multiple someone's, at times ... is stealing content from other bloggers, like me! Or you!
It's a reoccurring issue across the net, and here at BlogPaws. "Isn't everything on the Internet free?" someone will assert. "It's the Internet... how can it not be free?" Meaning, "I can use this, can't I? And, if I forget or neglect to cite the source, well, that's okay. It's the Internet."
The short answer is a resounding, "NO!" in all caps. The long answer is a bit more complicated. Jodi Stone, from Heart Like a Dog, recently wrote a fantastic article on her blog discussing this issue and sharing her experiences. She's given us permission to share that post.
