Copyright Infringement

     I never really cared or bothered to check, but a few simple, targeted searches revealed my stuff plagiarized quite a bit. Entire pieces were copied and pasted with false attribution or none at all. I also found many quotes literally copied into another graphic with someone else's name at the bottom. LOL. While I guess it is somewhat flattering, it is also something I wouldn't dream of doing myself.

     Yes, this is at best a shabby attempt at community service and yes, all I really care about is that it's out there and useful to people, but how about we give it proper attribution? You don't even have to use my name - you can just say this is from The Privileged Addict or whatever.

     So if I may, all of my blog pieces, books and quotes are copyrighted. The Library of Congress is a real place and there can be real consequences. I certainly don't have the time or the will to pursue copyright infringement, and like I said, I don't particularly care all that much, but whoever you are really pissed off my kid. 😎

We will get you...
