Me again!

I have read several writers' pages here and have noticed on the bottom that they have copyrighted it. Is that something that you just wrote in there to deter copying, or is it some process you had to do to obtain?

I know my writings aren't going to win any pullitzer's, but they're mine. I'd like to keep them that way. Laughing

Thank you all!

I'm thinking it's not just to say hey, this is protected, but also to let people know how they should quote your stuff. By AbbyFitz, for instance, if you'd like it that way. Or by AbbyFitz at Wizzley, say. :)

There's nothing to obtain, Abby. Some folks like to add this as an extra notice, or, perhaps, as a deterrent to scrapers.

This statement follows every article.  I get that.

 

But as I was commenting today, I noticed that just above that statement, at different people's articles there are different "things" above that statement.

 

For example, one article just had the name of the author.

Another article had a link to another website outside of Wizzley, where the author publishes articles.

Curious?  So I checked a few of my articles because I have never really paid attention and noticed that it said "Copyright @2013".

 

  • First - How did that get there?  Did I do something in my profile and that automatically generates that after each article?  Cause I don't remember ever typing that in when I write and publish my articles. (O.o)
  • Second - If it's not automatically generated, why do some people have different "things" above the disclosure statement?  I mean ... Why don't we ALL have the "Copyright @2013" after our articles?
  • Third - If I sign up as a YAHOO Contributor and use the "Display Only" and reprint one of my Wizzley article in the YAHOO network, is that a NO NO?

 

(The third bullet probably doesn't belong here but I didn't want to start a new forum thread.)

In your Settings, look for the box titled "Page Footer". That's where you can enter some custom text such as a copyright notice, your name, your parrot's favorite saying, or whatever you want. Smile

If you publish a Wizzley article on another site you create duplicate content. No good.  Cry

Sounds good!  Maybe I put that "Copyright @2013" there and don't remember. (O.o Embarassed)

@chefkeem.  Thanks!  Enjoy the weekend! Smile
