Blog Problems

I'm not sure if any of you guys have been having problems accessing my site lately. I've been having a bit of issues concerning my blog, namely copyright issues. Yep, I made the mistake of using copyrighted material in one particular post (it was a birthday greetings poem, which I have promptly removed). My domain was unfortunately suspended.

Ouch.

I've already contacted Godaddy.com on this, and the issue is now resolved. Let's just say that there was a lot of lawyer-jargon-talk going on. Godaddy.com support was very prompt, which was good.

Anyways, let it be a lesson to all of us as well. Be careful when using material which isn't originally yours (text, images, media files, etc) in your site, lest you want the Internet watchdogs coming down on you. I certainly learnt mine.

Glad that all is well. Yes, it's quite easy to trace somebody using your material / contents.

I'm not sure, does lyrics counts?
Glad that all is well and hope no more trouble in the future

Zeroimpact: I don't think so, but then again, I can't be too sure.

Thanks :)

Thanks for sharing this piece of info for all to learn.

I am glad everything is sorted out.

There's just so many grey areas sometimes especially when it comes to the internet.

yesterday, i had a difficult time accessing your site, to the point that i gave up. tried it today, hence here's my comment.

Paris: Thanks :)

Kleio: No worries, it's something to learn anyway. Yeah, gotta be careful lor. I made the mistake in not linking to the birthday poem I posted on my blog. But then again, I don't think it would make any difference anyway. The owner actually requested Godaddy.com to delete my account!!

Rheiboy17: Thanks for coming back, really appreciate it :) Yeah, the domain was only reinstated yesterday afternoon, hence the problems.
