This post (http://aopinionatedman.com/2015/12/09/copyright-online-theft-and-blogging/) prompted me to post a Copyright Notice (http://newauthoronline.com/copyright-notice/) on this site. I had fully intended to add such a notice for some considerable time. I had, however not got round to doing so until today.
Wordpress offers a re-blogging function, allowing the sharing of a small part of posts, with readers being directed to the original source. I welcome re-blogs and am grateful to everyone who takes the time to share my work in this way. Consequently the above Notice should not be taken as a prohibition on re-blogging. The Notice is intended to prevent the taking of content by a minority of individuals and the passing off of such content as their own work. I hope that the Notice will protect my work and that of those who have honoured me by guest posting on newauthoronline.com.
