Armchair BEA: Ethics

Plagiarism is BAD.  There. We said it. It's a back-handed compliment. You liked our content enough to copy it verbatim but didn't respect us enough to let us know. If you are too lazy to do your own work, then maybe you just shouldn't be blogging or writing.

Girls Just Reading is conscientious about what we post.  We don't borrow images, with the exception of book covers, and we make sure we give credit where credit is due.  If anyone ever has questions about what you see on our site we encourage you to contact us so we can fix or clarify any perceived errors.  We have attempted to make our purpose and policies clear in our Disclosure page.

Have we been plagiarized? Yes, but we asked that the content be removed and it was. In the world of instant access this is bound to happen but we have found that most people in the blogging world are ethical.

I like how you openly invite anyone to contact you if they think you've been an offender. We should all take that stance.
