Copyright Infringement in blogging

I’ve been surfing through blog-land this evening and am absolutely amazed at the amount of blatant copyright infringement occurring associated with an opinion piece at Forbes.com by Michael Noir. The piece is titled Don’t Marry Career Women.

I’ve looked at at least a dozen blogs with postings on this and was astounded to find that at least a third had posted the entire article along with the counterpoint opinion subsequently published with it by Forbes.com.

People! That is blatent copyright infringement! The only ones with the right to publish an entire article is the copyright owner, which in this case is probably Forbes.com. And Forbes.com is a big enough copyright owner to go after those infringing upon its copyrights.
