A Note About Copying Texts from Websites
I have put a lot of work into tracking down, obtaining, copying, typing, and uploading these works to my site. I don't mind if readers download these materials for use in academic research, papers, and other projects. I do request that you respect two simple courtesies.
First, please don't download these articles just so you can put them up on your own website. That's especially true for my own papers, which are copyright to me and my sole and exclusive intellectual property. You're welcome to create a link to them from your site, but don't steal them.
Second, if you quote or cite material from an article published on a website, be sure you use correct citation procedures in your footnotes or bibliography. Remember, although it may be difficult to enforce, all copyright laws and rules of academic etiquette apply just as much to the Internet and the World Wide Web as they do in print. One way we can help avoid getting an Internet Police Force slapped on us and violating our rights is by consciously respecting each other's work. If you admire a website, don't show your appreciation by stealing from the author!
Thanks to everyone for cooperating!
