Can I copy my Knoji articles and put them on my blog at blogspot

    I have emailed Knoji countless times for various reasons including removal of my articles never once have I got a reply.  I have asked questions on the help forum to only find no answers.

    I want to copy my content and put it on my blog then I want to request that Google takes my Knoji articles off search.

    I read the Knoji TOS but I am not sure if coping my own content can get me in legal trouble with Knoji?

    I know Google frowns on copied content so I won't publish my copied content until Google has removed the original content from serps.

    Any Help Would Be Appreciated Thanks!

      The "we do not claim ownership" line seems pretty clear to me.  They don't own your content, you do.

    I realize I own my content.  I also realize I am not earning from my content and they are and they never made any effort at all to fix the problem.  So I figured since it is my content why not put it on my blog.

    I am just trying to make sure I don't hang myself in the process.  What would you do in a situation like this?

    Since you have compassion and a sharp mind, I suggest that you follow your heart and do what you think is best. Be pro-active. Remember, you can't keep a good man down (species speaking). There are many facets to every personality.
