Edublogs: Steal But Do Not Get Caught! Give Credit.

Do you think school districts "pirating" content from your education blog and sharing it with their staff - with or without attribution - is right or wrong?

This is the question which the author of this post, closed it. And since we are reproducing some content from other blogs and sites, we think we have an opinion here. At the far bottom of this blog you will see © Education and Tech which is aimed to state that our contents are free to be used under Creative Commons license.

When we do use content from other sites, we are doing it because we believe this constitutes a 'fair use' of any such copyrighted material as provided for in section 107 of the US Copyright Law. In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107, the material on this site is distributed without profit to those who have expressed a prior interest in receiving the included information for research and educational purposes.

In about the question, once a blog is up to share its contents under Creative Commons, it is about the user to attain by the rules. Remember the internet is huge and many are copying contents to make money. If that is the case, you should follow suit and ask to stop with such practices. Here, since the purpose of the consumer is educational and none of the content quoted you could see is altered or transformed, there is no reason to get concerned.

They are to respond for the linking, and owner of contents should politely ask the consumer to abide by the Commons license, if they still ignore your rights, then make it public and let them know you advice against this practice and fight all your way down.
