At RealityTvScandlas we operate under the Fair Use Act

This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Non Commercial Use

And protected by the  encourages and allows anyone to use information from the site.  All that we requests is:

Please properly credit the site by posting the actual link and use an excerpt only.  Also, Do Not Copy The Whole Article., USE EXTRACTS ONLY and not to copy more than one half of the content.  Special circumstances may arise, we encourage you to contact us in the event a special circumstance would take place wherein you would need more than half of the content.

By copying and pasting a full article in it’s entirety on a forum (most likely where you will post it at) , your peers have no reason to click on the link when you paste the full article, not to mention; forums normally and should frown upon copyright infringement and theft of intellectual property.

Please note: This includes posting multiple extracts/snippets on multiple comments in the same thread on forums–it’s so much easier to paste an extract and link the rest. 

We, like other outlets, blogs, websites, essayists, etc. work hard to come up with original content;  in some cases we spend money on research, we also pay for web-hosting, maintenance, researchers, writers etc.  Please just please be respectful and perhaps think of it as if;  you wrote the article and you get paid by how many page views it gets.

We will vigorously pursue any person and or website who infringes our work and or permits this behavior, it’s the forum owners responsibility to set rules and guidelines for their members, we don’t need to explain the law to you. Please don’t make us be jerks.  The internet has enough room for everyone, we just have to respect each other. 

Reality TV Scandals operates under a Non Commercial license because too many forums webmasters, monitors,volunteers and/or website forum owners turn a blind eye to their registered forum users copying and pasting a full article instead of posting an extract; you would think people would know better to begin with and the Forum staff wouldn’t allow it; therefore the License prohibits the Forum owner of the website from profiting–they profit off of page-views; yes, they all add up, and let me tell you; it sucks to have these guidelines; anyone who knows; myself, Amia or Kim and the rest of the Reality TV Scandals team– you know we are generous.

Our terms and polices are in place because too many users on forums take it upon themselves to go to great lengths to copy & paste FULL articles; by doing so, wherever the content is posted in it’s entirety, there is no reason for the person(s) they are “sharing” (scraping) the work with to click the link to read the content.
