Making tallow – this blog post with video is copyrighted so do not plagiarize my content.

Too bad I have to tell people not to copy my content but I am spelling it out so there’s no confusion. Just stop plagiarizing my content. I resent it and it’s not Christian to steal intellectual property. It’s not okay for anyone to steal my (or anyone’s) content. Just stop.

I made some tallow (beef fat) to cook with. It’s a small batch but my video shows how it turned out.

Plagiarized

For the few of the blog posts I’ve written lately that don’t seem to hold much importance (ahem, aren’t I so humble?), I have discovered lately that someone has been swiping my blog posts and their titles and posted them on their own blog site!

I’ve been PLAGIARIZED! It is illegal to plagiarize someone’s work. It is theft of someone’s intellectual property. It can cost millions in a lawsuit (see below for more on this).

A simple google search provides this:

pla·gia·rize

/ˈplājəˌrīz/

Learn to pronounce

verb

past tense: plagiarized; past participle: plagiarized

  1. take (the work or an idea of someone else) and pass it off as one’s own. “he was fined $6,000 for having plagiarized the song”

Do you know how many musicians have lots many millions of dollars from websites making a killing off their work? There has been a huge fuss made over this in past years! How can someone be so ignorant of the fact that plagiarism is a lie? Even as a school child you know you have to do your own original work; that stealing is not okay. So how does a “Christian” website get off on stealing my blog posts thinking I won’t find out?

You can do simple searches, for example, of portions of someone’s writing, or even pictures from someone’s website and do searches on where they end up! Help me understand this ignorance. I notice they also have credit cards on the bottom of their site I remember seeing where they collect money for something but to use my writing as a way to draw more people to their website is unpardonable.

They have removed one blog post, then this morning I found another that I have asked them to remove. I will look for more since they do not have any brains to select all my blog posts they stole and remove them on their own. I have ways to make them ashamed and they will suffer if they continue to do this on my behalf. Maybe I’ll have to “out” them.

They sound like criminals in the making and I hope they are genuinely ashamed of themselves for stealing people’s work!

Unique Content Is Copyrighted Material

I went to look at the website for Grace Community Church tonight after considering whether I wanted to blog my synopsis of the Live Stream sermon I watched Sunday morning, presented by Pastor Steven Lawson who talked about The Ten Commandments.

After I checked the website to see what was new there, I noticed something different.  A whole page dedicated to using videos and audio recordings of the church’s at the Grace To You link  which has the rules to abide by in their copyrighted materials.  I have never quoted anything from the sermons I’ve heard without documented sources, the links and the full credit in any of my blog posts so I hope I’ve never infringed upon their copyright laws.  I tried not to anyway.
