Why is this material copyrighted?


Some well meaning people have copied the material from this as well as many other websites without permission.  Most people when it is pointed out to them,  understand and replace the material with links or give credit where credit is due.  But some do not, and continue to represent the work as their own. When I went to school this was called plagiarism.

I'm sure many of you might be asking yourself at this point, the 1st point of the Scout Law is "A Scout is TRUSTWORTHY. A Scout tells the truth. He keeps his promises.   Honesty is part of his code of conduct.  People can depend on him." I have asked the same question of other webmasters on more than one occasion.

This is not a commercial website.  There is nothing that can be purchased or sold from this website, so there is no monetary incentive to copyright this information.  Much of the material on this website is used with the permission of others, and many hours have been spent assembling and updating this web site.  When used without permission this violates the rights and the hard work of those who have contributed the information.

Of course, that is the real reason this site was developed.  You do not need to obtain permission to use this information for your Wood Badge courses,  please credit the source however.  No money can be charged for any of the information contained on this site.

Questions?
I'm sure I did not think of all the questions that could arise, so please don't hesitate to ask.
