I find it hard to believe how often I see small businesses and more importantly people who would work for small business who have no problem stealing from others.
Entrepreneur Magazine is a great resource for start ups and businesses looking to get some quick tidbits of info and knowledge.
They have a pretty standard Terms of Service for their publication you can find here: http://www.entrepreneur.com/page/225367
I've seen local and now not-so-local "consultants" pushing their material as if it was their own.
It's hard to believe we haven't gotten past the days when cut-n-paste enabled plagiarism wasn't eliminated, but I guess with so much out there, it is hard for a publisher to protect themselves.
But then again, maybe you ought not to do business with someone too self-involved to give credit to another or just too lazy?
Either way, take a look at the work of who you are working with to make sure they are not essentially thieves. If they can do it someone else, who says they won't do it to you?
