Copyright and Ethics

I have been compiling these pages since my retirement in 1999. Please feel free to link to them but I would ask you not to copy any of them and pass them off as your own work. I know of at least three websites whose owners have blatantly plagiarized my work and one actually admits it.
No doubt there are more!

A website like mine where a set of links is arranged into a compilation, is copyright protected.

The Copyright Issues page at Cyndi's List of Genealogy Sites  has links to several excellent sources.

The Online Books Page: FAQs about copyright including information about copyrights in various countries

I hope you find my website useful. I have been compiling it since 1999. I am delighted when people link to my pages, but it is against international law to copy and paste whole sections without my permission.
I try to link to respectable pages only, but I am not responsible for the content of external websites
