Why Copy and Paste is an Issue to SF

Hello Members

I would like to address why we are so firm on Copy and Paste rules for materials on Spiritual Forums. There is valid reason for this the main one being legal actions that can be taken against the site and the person presenting the materials.

Just because you find it on the internet and there is "permissions" for re use at times on the site that does not mean that they have truly done the work to legally register the material or to get permissions for re use of the material This especially applies to PDF Books that you can down load. That can mean in many cases someone has just scanned the book into their computer and put on the bottom a Copy Write notice. They do no own the legal rights of use.

We get many requests to take off material or links that have been used by our members with at times legal actions that will be take if it is not removed in a timely manor. We remove them right away and make sure that the person making the request is aware of that action being taken.

The rules are different from country to country and even in my case Province to Province in what I can copy and paste or reproduce and what I can not. There too are rules for use with Non Profit Societies that can come into play. So you really need to just not do it. Use a link.

The rule is here:


Copy-Paste: One or two lines at most of relevant text of material from other sites or sources and a link to the relevant text for further reading is allowed on the condition that the author is credited and the source linked is not a commercial site (promoting or selling goods or services). Quotes of religious texts such as the Bible or Quran must also be no more than one or two lines. Posts that quote or copy-paste more than one or two short lines of text will be removed or edited. Repeatedly breaching this rule will lead to warnings and possible Disciplinary Action.

Hello Members

Please note that of late there have been quite a few "requests" by the owners of material to have them removed from Spiritual Forums with the intention of taking further actions if this is not done in a timely manor.

This applies to poetry as well "even if it says author "anonymous" as many times that is put so that the poster of the material feels they are off the hook for content copy write issues. Many times if you Google a line or two from the poem you will find an author attached.

We have to be so careful to respect the rules and regulations noting that it is different from country to country and even at times district to district. The rules for re productions are usually on the bottom of a web site, note too that is not always to correct information.

Lets really start to police ourselves as members on this issue. The last thing we want is someone to face a fine that is up to $50,000.00 CDN dollars where I live. Trust me the fines are real and they are imposed.

Thank you Lynn, for educating about creative rights. I'm still impressed with the integrity of how this site is managed.

The Conquered Worm

Build for Me a cradle within the setting sun
as the its count the theys without forgetting one
once upon a midnight dreary
really only works in theory
for in this world of tales told
by the timid of the bold
there is no perfect setting
no magickal unfolding
no justice left not regretting
the method of its scolding
and I finally see at last at length
the depths to which My faith can sink
In ever mocking morbid prose
A fool still clinging to the rose
Into a shallow grave of noise
No eulogize, girl hearts, or brains of little boys
Just a paltry just thou art
And unto dust thou shall return
In a love devoid of loving
The music nare to stop
And the tyrants with their slaves
Like dancers neath tear drops
The worm they sent to eat our kind
Has fallen ill and lost its mind
So now we stand at the bank of the brook
And ready him for the conqueror hook
He writhes relentless despite his loss
There is no chance of escape
No salvation from this cross
Once world slayer
Now fish bait
And not one of you can measure
The powers of this treasure
Whatever sum you could afford
It always costs just a penny more
It is vast beyond the means of mortal minds to grasp
And whenever you think you know at last
It takes off its mask and laughs

what was said about seeming to have everything,
yet in the end only being found naked, hungry, and blind?

the treasure that is not a treasure
is not for me.
