From the owners of RV Education 101:
Our company survived the dot-com boom, and this year we are celebrating our 20th work anniversary. As the company grew, so did the struggle to defend our name and our brand from the barrage of copyright infringement.
We are a video production and RV information company, so copyright infringement on the Internet would eventually affect every aspect of our business from articles and checklists to videos and photographs. We worked too hard to get where we are today to let copyright infringement take away what is rightfully ours.
As the Internet grew, so did content creation. Content is king, as the old saying goes. Content marketing informs and educates consumers, resulting in big money for lots of folks. The more eyes looking at the material you promote and sell, the more sales you get.
As early as 2003, I discovered my articles being used by other individuals. All of my attribution was stripped, and in the majority of instances other people signed their names as the author of the stolen content.
