Everything You Should Know About Creative Common Licenses

If you are a writer, then chances are you have a blog. It’s touted as a great way to build an audience. I know I enjoyed blogging here and at my website. (Yes, shameless plug.) You get to speak your mind, give opinions, and share.

But it’s not without its problems.

Less scrupulous people may steal your content. It may be a paragraph or the entire post. I’ve seen book reviews plucked from one book blog and put on another. It’s a scary and disheartening thing. A blogger can take action, but can you prevent it? Probably not. A thief is a thief. There are things you can do to that will give you extra clout if someone does steal your content. I found a good infographic at Wiley Exchanges that will help you figure out what Creative Common License info you should put on your blog.

About Patricia Lynne 208 Articles
Patricia Lynne never set out to become a writer, and in fact, she was more interested in art and band in high school and college. On a whim, she wrote down a story bouncing in her head. That was the start of it and she hasn't regretted a moment. Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, and has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow. She writes New Adult under the pen name Patricia Josephine.


  1. This is wise I’m sure. Don’t know if anyone has stolen any of my content, but I guess I’m not particularly concerned about it. Dumb I know, but I’ve done a lot of dumb stuff in my life.

    I should also be concerned about all of the writing I’ve just plain lost over the years. I’m especially bad about saving stuff on my computer and then to another source. Gosh, now I feel so irresponsible.
