Copyright Violators Will Be Banned - question for Cat

Unread post by Flamethrower » Wed Mar 24, 2010 9:57 pm

Not that you don't have enough on your plate, but I've surfed on other rootworking sites/forums that blatantly copied pages from the LM site without giving credit to you (Cat Y). I'm sure it must be annoying as heck to see someone else taking credit for your hard work. :evil:

Is this something that you want brought to your attention whenever I come across it or just let it be?

She goes after those people like wildfire! Definitely let her know if you run across anything like that. :)

Yes, in addition to banning copyright violators from my site, in solidarity with other writers, i do want to know about sites that infringe on my copyrights or advertise my images without actually selling my products.

I also like to enlist my friends, students, and well-wishers in active web campaigns against these rip-offs -- exposing them, ridiculing them, making legal moves against them, and bringing their repulsive lies to public view.

The Lucky Mojo Fan Army to the rescue!

I found an e-mail address for you, I think, but it's for friends and commune buddies. :)
Where do you want us to submit these links?

Maybe we can set up another page on this forum just for reporting copyright violators? Nothing too elaborate, just a place for the LM Fan Army to report these issues.

If you are a student, please post copyright violation notices to the hrcourse yahoo group. I will not "approve" them for the group to see, but i will see them and act on them.

If you are not a student, please send copyright violation notices to comments@luckymojo.com

Thank you!

What about websites that are based overseas? Do you have any recourse there? (UK to be specific) I came across one the other day selling most of your oils for about twice the cost. I looked for the logo thing showing them to an approved reseller, but couldnt find anything.

The emphasis in the above quote is mine. If a site showing Lucly Mojo Curio Co. products is actually selling those products, they are permitted to use the images, though it never hurts to ask. :) The apparently exorbitant prices on the UK website are probably necessary for them to cover their overseas shipping costs, customs fees, and Value Added Taxes, which can all be shockingly costly. I think it's a testament to Lucky Mojo quality that they find the products to be worth the cost. :)

If we have a social media, and we are talking about LM products, and using it on spells to show how a certain spell is done, is that copy right?

Pyromancer --

Thanks for asking.

Copyright is the right to copy. It is like mineral rights (the right to dig minerals on land) or water rights (the right to take water from a river) or gazing rights (the right to run animals on someone's land.

When a writer, artist, scuptor, musician, or designer creates something, the right to copy that thing belongs to them. They can make copies and give them away, or they can make copies and sell them. That is their copyright.

My txts and my art belong to me. I do not lease, sell, or give away my sole right to copy them -- anywhere, whether for free or for sale, with my name attached or removed.

Most authors, artists, and musicians retain their copyrights, because that is how they make money from their creative works. Creating works is their job.

So ... talking about us -- Lucky Mojo or anything about us -- is YOUR creative writing, and it is not a violation of our copyrights. Describing a spell in your own words is also fine (although crediting us for the idea would be much appreciated). But it is actually against the law to copy-and-paste material from our forum or web sites (or anyone else's) -- because that is a copy, and you have violated the author's copyrights.

See a longer explanation here:

Nope I would never copy from text. Just making sure of what I asked. Spell videos, hoodoo using Lucky Mojo products
