Do Not Link to File Sharing Sites Or Post Entire Articles From Other Sites; Observe Copyright Laws & Fair Useby noid (adsense policies | copyright | fair use | filesharing sites)
Last April 4, the Google Ads from my site have been removed due to alleged copyright violation. I am appealing said penalty since this site has tried its best ever since to comply with the policies of the Google Adsense Program.
In this regard, I am asking everyone not to post complete articles from other sites unless you own or co-own the copyright (exceptions are events or articles created for marketing or promotional purposes) and to remove or report any similar violations. Always observe the fair use rule (quotes/excerpts only, etc) in posting content.
Also, please refrain from linking to sites which violate copyright laws (okay, just realized this now -- the reason may have been the links to file sharing sites; in the example post in this site cited by Google AdSense, someone posted files of their works hosted in file sharing sites).
Will automatically remove or edit any posts violating any of the above instructions. If you have posts which fit the description of the violations above, please unpublish them. Violators will be warned. Repeat offenders will be banned.
Thank you everyone for your cooperation, and keep on writing!
