    Thanks! I like having conversations where people actually discuss the topics versus getting personal.

    Question. Is quoting just the first sentence hard and fast? I've frequently quoted another particularly egregious one further down the article.

    Nothing is hard and fast. Context matters.

    The idea is to make sure the owner of the original article gets credit and a nod for the site which gets revenue. I had a friend who was a fellow student at an institution of higher learning get accused of plagiarism. Turns out the software nor the person at the university was aware that he was plagiarizing himself since he had written the paper he was accused of plagiarizing.

    Actually, there's more to it than that. There are legal changes pending that make it a lot more complicated than just giving credit to the author and source.

    You are probably right as I don't keep track of it. Lawyers Lobbyists and Legislators tend to make things way more complicated than they need to be. I am a simple man. I read the rules and try to follow them. In these times that may not be enough.

    It is copyrighted when created. It no longer requires the circle C to be copyrighted. If it does the copyright owner is able to get legal fees in the event of successful lawsuit.

    That is the gist of the 1994 copyright law.
