I have had a request from someone that runs another website to use one of my IB articles. What are the copyright rules? Can I give them permission or would I need to get the articel deleted from IB first (which could be a problem given what's been going on around here lately).

I believe that they could put a link on their page to yours.  But then again, not sure these days as have not written here for a while worst luck.  Good luck hope someone else can help you.

You cannot have your articles elsewhere if they are on IB. You would have to have them removed first.

I did find in the Terms of Service that writers retain all rights to their own work....

Yes, writers do maintain the rights to their work, but you may not use the article anywhere else while it is still live on InfoBarrel. Once it is deleted, you can use it anywhere you want.

I just messaged Ryan on Facebook, so here's hoping .........

Yay. Ryan answered my FB message and has already deleted the article. I also mentioned that our earnings haven't been updated since December and the fact that the whole site is rife with spam!

Oy oy oy. It would be so nice if admin checked into the site rather than us running them down on social media.

Yes, I definitely agree with you there, Brown.

Is there a way for someone to request a visit from admin to the site? Tried reaching out but no one has responded to my request. If I could to send a private message via Twitter I would but he doesn't have that feature; he's quite active here. Big thanks to whom ever can make this happen.

Well, I did let Ryan know via Facebook that the spam was getting out of hand and that there didn't seem to have been an earnings update since December. He said he would talk to Kevin about this.

Let's hope the talking results in a visit to actually communicate with us.
