We have a newspaper website and our articles are very often

This answer was rated:

We have a newspaper website and our articles are very often 'stolen' by other websites that do not even give their source, only the name of the author. These sites claim that as our website has 'share' 'facebook' twitter links they can do so under EU law and only if we remove these can we have a case, is this correct ?

Abogado3044 :

Hi

Abogado3044 :

Its not correct

Abogado3044 :

When you shared in facebook or similar your are ahared the name of the author and the place where the information comes

Abogado3044 :

But if they are no sharing your web site as the place where the informatioon comes, you could demand them in court

Abogado3044 :

But really your demand needs that you had paid for the copyrights

Abogado3044 :

If yo have not paid for the copyrights you have no chance to demand

Customer:

So if there are the sharing tools etc and they quote author and source we can do nothing about it?

Abogado3044 :

Yes, if they do that you can do nothing

Abogado3044 :

Because you are shring your information

Customer:

Our copyrights have been paid and we are paid subscribers to int'l wire services (Reuters) as well
