- Should we ask permission BEFORE we ever use anything from someone else's blog ?
- Is it deemed permissable to use quotes from another's review as long as we give them the credit for their words, without asking permission?
- How many people have licensed their blog content with Creative Commons. Org?
- How many people have experienced someone else stealing their blog content and claiming it as their own?

If these sites had that disclaimer then I most certainly would have contacted them first, but most don't. I'm not out to steal anyone's work.......EVER!!!
