I have taken The Gluten File offline for a bit to review it for potential copyright violation. While on BrainTalk, I think we were well protected by Fair Use law, and measures JL took. But, now that I have it in this new format, it occured to me I might want to take a more scrutizining look.

As much as I believe I have appropriately cited all sources of the information contained within, I hold open the possibility there may be some problem somewhere. I have cited so many sources, always trying to supply the appropriate link or clearly identifying the source, but I imagine the law is much more complex than my teeny brain imagines. I always thought you could excerpt things so long as you provided the source, especially for educational purposes... fair use... but I think the actual law is not quite that generous. I have found just a few spots where I may have quoted too much, even though it was cited and linked to the online original source when there was one.

For now, I am taking copyright rather seriously. My intent is to educate/inform, NOT violate any copyright laws!

Hi Cara,

Anne had emailed me some things, but I have not had a chance to delve into them.

I am sorry to hear this and hope that it has nothing to do with it. Have you talked to google or the powers that be about it?

I am not really sure why the google rank dropped...it may have nothing to do with anything. If there is any possible copyright infringement, the best thing to do is take it off line, I think...and take a fresh look at it. I haven't had any notice of violation. But for now, I'd rather be cautious.

It would be terrible to lose The Gluten File

It is such a wonderful resource and has helped so many people. I hope you will be able to bring it back. If it is a copywrite infringement, I wonder whose toes were stepped on?

I am so sorry to hear this! I would have saved so much info from it! I had been waiting for BT to come back to send the link to a friend, and yesterday I sent her this link. Maybe it was not meant to be. I hope it all works out ok and the gluten file can come back to help people!

Cara, my local Celiac group sent out an announcement that included:

Quote:
8. Two websites of interest are:
NIH celiac website at http://www.celiac.nih.gov/
http://jccglutenfree.googlepages.com. This site has a lot of excellent
information, including links to studies dealing with CD.
In general for copyright, I believe it is ok to excerpt text but copying the entire copyrighted article is not.

Sigh. Dang, Cara. Hope it all turns out ok. I can't imagine what the problem could be as I know you've been very careful with it, but I certainly understand being cautious. It's such a great resource, I would hate to see it silenced!!

And hugs to you, because I imagine this is worrisome and frustrating for you!

WEll, I am a little stuck here. Is a sentence ok? A paragraph? Two or Three paragraphs? What if it says no part may be copied? Does anyone have expertise in this area?
