Use of copyrighted material by Timberbuysell.com
If you are visiting from Timberbuysell.com, welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy reading some of the articles here, and I invite you to return often.
I want to make you aware that Timberbuysell.com republished my article, "Principles of good forestry from 1923" without permission. After I made two requests, they removed the article.
When a website states that it is copyrighted with "All rights reserved," it means that republishing material from that site without permission is illegal. A link back to the site the material was taken from is not a substitute for written permission to republish.
While I understand that Timberbuysell.com is a non-profit corporation with a benevolent purpose, it is not above the law, either in the regular world or in the cyber world.
Timberbuysell.com was apparently not aware that copyright law applies to the republishing of intellectual property on the internet by non-profit organizations. I received apologies from both Mr. Craig Rawlings and Nora McDougall-Collins.
NOTE: I have updated this post from its original content to reflect the current status of my issue with Timberbuysell.com. The offer of assistance in the comment from Jonathan Bailey (thank you, Jonathan!) was made before Timberbuysell.com removed my article. Jonathan Bailey writes the blog Plagiarism Today which deals with copyright and the internet. It is an excellent resource that I have consulted many times.
