Author Posts July 28, 2009 at 11:48 pm #385026 clubpenguinsmilesMember Someone keeps threatening us that they will shut down our blog, JUST because we have something on our site, and they have one too. Is that even possible? The blog I need help with is clubpenguinsmiles.wordpress.com.

If it isn’t something that they actually created, then they have no rights to it.

Staff decide what action to take. No one else. Staff are not there to settle arguments between bloggers.  One of those rules is, it’s your responsibility to make sure your content is legal and doesn’t infringe copyright.
