Add disclaimer to posts

    I am not the only one discovering that my Creative Commons License is not enough to stop aggegators and others from simply reposting my material. I am a professional writer, though I give permission for material on my website ( to be reprinted (with credit to my blog: for educational and/or discussion purposes. What annoys me is that others use my material for profit making ventures, and don’t pay me for my work. I have a “Creative Commons License” warning (quite explicit) on the page, using a widget, but when aggregators, etc. copy my material, they don’t include the notice. I want to add the notice to the end of each post in some non-obtrusive way.

    A little drop-in thingy (I’m not a geek any more, and the technical terms are beyond me) for each post. How to do that?


    I use this at the end of all my posts:

    <blockquote><div style="background-color:#F2F2F2; font-style: normal; font-family: Georgia; text-align: center;">Copyright © 2009. The Sensuous Curmudgeon. All rights reserved.</div></blockquote>

    Change the color and type style if you like, and of course the name of the copyright holder.


    Thank you for sharing the info and generously including the code, very kind!


    Glad to help.



    My advice is, if you’re going to put that in your post, link your name to your blog so when they steal it they steal that link to, and it shows up on your Dashboard. That will make it easier to track them and take them down. Also, it will drive readers of their site to yours!


    That is absolutely devilish! I think I’ll do it. Thanks.
