We love all the sharing that takes place between community members on Talk Budgies and you may come across a great article, video or picture that you wish to post for others to see. Before you do, please be aware that this may violate copyright. Posting anything that does not belong to you, whether it be text that you copied and pasted from an article, or a photo/video from a website posted without permission or citing the source, may be a copyright violation.
Be careful how you choose to share information.
The best way to share articles, websites, photos or videos that are not your own is by posting web links to the original sources of those materials. For materials such as articles or information from websites, posting short snippets is usually okay. Better yet, create a summary in your own words and then give credit to the original source of the information.
If material you post is suspected of infringing copyright, staff will place your post into moderation so that it is hidden from view. During that time, staff may ask that you obtain permission from the original source. Alternatively, you may be asked to reword or summarize the material into your own words while making sure you also cite the source of the information, particularly in cases where permission has not been granted.
If you suspect that a post infringes copyright, please notify the staff by using the "Report Post" icon or by creating a message in the "Contact the Staff" forum.
