BLOGGING, FAIR USE, BLOG STATS AND PIRACY OF BOOKS:
I hadn't did a Google search (Mary Nida Smith) for awhile to see where my copyrighted material might be used without my permission, or my name or my blogs are appearing.
FAIR USE: My copyrighted poem titled "Christmas Below the Sea" was found on http://filipinos-ww2usmilitaryservice.tripod.com/id1.html under the FAIR USE law Title 17 U.S.C. 107. To learn more go to U.S. Copyright Office: Fair Use http://www.copyrightgov/fls/fl102/html
BLOG STATS: I found a site that had all the stats on my blog -submarinestories.blogspot.com and it's possibility of a future ad making blog. I will not review any more. But now, I know why I received so much spam for that site. The only good good thing they did mentioned all my other blogs and where to purchase my book and more. I don't know if this all is really a good thing or not.
BOOK PIRACY: Below is a link to an article on piracy of books that tells how that piracy is draining income from novelists. This was passed along by courtesy of Lois Kleinsasser (Cait London).That link is http://caitlondon.blogspot.com/2010/11/free-downloads-or-piracy.html Delois McGrew, President OWL
