Question About Copyrights and Quoting with Linking...

This is a rather serious post - I hope people can shed some light on this for me.  I have been using mostly articles to provide content while working on some original stuff.  Apparently in the Terms of Use of many of these sites, users are prohibited from using the information in other websites (though I am quoting and linking back to the original sites)...  I do not know how to handle this, as I do not want to leave myself liable to civil/criminal action.

My question to you all is this: what would you do?  I am torn between just putting a blurb about the articles I post then a link to the articles to be opened in another window or keeping things as it is and seeing what happens.  I know I am not the only person that references/uses content and would like some input as to how you all would handle this.  If I have to I will dismantle the blog and redo all my posts with summaries and links to the articles... but would like to avoid it if possible.

I look forward to comments.

Bloodletting And Knights: A Medieval Guide To Investing

Investing can be a very complicated and confusing monster to try to tackle.  As a fellow investor, I understand that many perils, traps and mazes face young investors as they try to conquer the world of investing.  I found an interesting article today that relates many of the popular and obscure investing terms to medieval times.  Enjoy the read - I found it to be a humorous yet informative article!

The Realities of Real Estate Investing

As everyone knows, infomercials and other marketing venues claim that real estate investing (REI) is easy, foolproof and that anyone and their mother can do it.  Though REI is not the most difficult concept in the world to grasp, it is definitely not for everyone - especially the unprepared!  Below is an article I found with some generic tips for young investors interested in real estate.  The article is pretty short, but does hit the nail on the head for a number of the points that it makes.  Definitely worth a look for those interested in REI.

Quick Update!

Hey there folks!  I just wanted to drop by and apologize for not posting today - split and hauled/stacked 3 cords of wood today and was too exhausted afterward to find/come up with anything cool.  I will be back tomorrow with new stuff for you all!

If you are looking for some random/cool/funny stuff to check out until my next post - check out my other blog at!   It might be just what you are looking for to take your mind off investing and the economy for a few minutes... :-D
