About Content Copyright:

As laid down by the US Code, “Copyright refers to the exclusive right that is rewarded to an individual to reproduce, distribute, perform, display or license his work. An individual can also produce or license derivatives of his work.” The law requires that for a work to be protected by the Code, it should be in a medium that is ‘concrete’ and is original.

For protecting the works that are published online the Digital Millennium Copyright Act [DMCA] is the one solution that a site owner can use. By filing a complaint via Google, action can be taken against the offender. If the offending website uses the Adsense feature of Google, than the Adsense team comes to aid.

The first option a site owner has is always a polite request to take off the copied content off the website. If this does not work than a wronged party can take recourse to the DMCA.

Scraper sites, spam, made for Adsense [MFA] sites simply interfere with the smooth processing and retrieval of information. While it is imperative that such Internet flotsam be fought against, it is equally important to remember that a tool like the DMCA is prevented from being abused.

Using content that is original and based on ethical research methods is the best way a website can establish a credible name for itself. Web surfers visit a website or a blogsite or a gallery for specific information that they are looking for. When they come across a site that has what they are looking for but does not confirm to the general layout of the particular site, they instantly know that such data cannot be trusted. Each visit to a site matters.

At Cosmos Learnings, professional content writers work on creating and developing site content that confirms to writing ethics and copyright laws. Each client associated with us is different and as such treated differently. Our content writing services cover content for websites, blogs, press releases, brochures and other marketing aids.
