As a regular writer of articles, hot topics, tips and ideas about the whole CPD and APC world I often wonder about the years of experience it has taken to make writing about
these subjects relevant, any actually quite easy. Along with those years of experience comes the issue of how do you protect your intellectual property or the copyright of your written words…
It lends itself to interesting debate and I can often see myself getting a little hot under the collar when other plagiarise or assume something written by me is just open source without often the courteous pause to check what they are doing is ethically correct.
Agreeably a lot of what I do produce I give away for free for the advantage of others but that always comes with the associated kickback of recognition for the author which is what it is often all about, developing a relationship and reputation with your readership. In todays world, with the social media frenzy, it is so much easier to reach millions of readers..
Which is why the article on page 47 in the March edition of RICS Modus caught my eye as it was an interesting perspective on ‘copyright’ and worth a read.
