I had written a post yesterday about a writing course I’m taking. I went zipping along the keyboard, coping pieces of the course material in effort to explain the answers I gave to the questions asked. The instructor came across my blog and, of course, read the post. I received an email tactfully alerting me to the fact that I was in breach of copyright laws.
The embarrassment was immense and disquieting, to say the least. I immediately deleted the post, leaving nothing behind to edit. Undoubtedly I could have kept a copy and reworked the article. However, I chose not to as a way of ensuring myself that I will not put myself in this situation again.
Copyright laws are of utmost importance. Remember.
