Between the job I started 17 months ago and family time, it is difficult to do much blogging. But when I saw this amazing work by Duane Lester I had to link it up and make sure as many bloggers as possible saw it. Duane had his work at All American Blogger taken and published in a local paper without permission and with no attribution. Unfortunately, this happens too often with blog posts being used by other blogs, newspapers and even on radio and television, without permission or attribution.
What makes Duane's story different is that he did something about it. Read his blog post about the experience from start to finish, including the legal advice he got and what he did from there, ending in a tense in person showdown that was captured on video. You don't want to miss this and every blogger should bookmark this one for future reference. Read Duane's blog post, then watch the video:
