I was just surfing when I came accross this!
<no links please!>
I can't beleive it! Are they really allowed to promote this crap!
There called shortcutconfidential and it actually said make money stealing peoples work! Those exact words, free marketing?
I just clicked on the link and my system said it could not find the page, it does make you sick doesn't it?
I did that too, and it didn't work, but if you copy/paste the link and the line below it and put it in a new window - you can access the site
Gotcha! Thanks shame on them we just have to love the internet.
I love the internet too, but yeah major shame on them!
i think you missed my point.
i doubt the system shows how to steal.
who needs to pay money to learn how to copy and paste!
It probable provides access to or shows how to find PLR articles, ezine articles and public domain content which either has no copyright or is encouraged to be reused
thats because there is no link! didnt you notice only half teh link is colored?
to see teh page you have to copy and paste all the text in the url
2 "Steal" is used in quotes throughout - most likely its going to suggest using PLR articles, ezine articles and/or public domain content, of course I wouldnt purchase to find out
Yeah only half the link highlighted sorry! I am just so annoyed by this. It does make me sick and I get so angry everytime I hear someone elses hub has been copied again and then I came accross this. I just can't get my head around it!
Looks like a scam, I wonder how much it cost to learn the secrets?
Oh I didn't look, your probably right. Still don't get started on scams......there another thing that really rubs me up the wrong way!
It looks like the secret could be using out of copyright works that are in the public domain, and perhaps material published by the US government.
Anyone can use that material in any way that they like, and sell it for whatever price they can get.
Probably the most famous and successful person to have done this is someone that you all know.
This person built an empire out of copying other people's work.
You probably have lots of DVD's featuring the work of his company.
He started off with the idea of a cute little furry animal who he had copied from someone else, and then built an empire based on the ideas and work copied from others.
Can you guess the name of this person?
I know...I know..
And this company are the most brutal when it comes to copyright infringement, or perceived infringement...
Stealing another persons work sucks ...but then again marketing is very aggressive with the BIG conpanies, do they copy? yes but they re more careful is all.
I guess the creativety skill is copying ,but altering so as to look as original as possible.
Im not usually that clever though ,gosh takes me forever sometimes to string two sentences together....
Ive been thinking recently if some happy juice would unlock the creative flow...with a note to myself to stay outta the forum
One of my readers just alerted me to this thread.
It's a little disconcerting that not one person here who is negative towards the opportunity I was writing about has actually tried it or bothered to really find out what the opportunity is about
Anyway, I'm not going to get into an argument about it and I can see that the discussion is now long over.
Instead, I'll just explain that this is a promotion for my monthly newsletter Shortcut Confidenital and the report that you receive for becoming a member introduces you to the concept of copywriting.
Whether it's writing sales copy for your own business, or as a job in itself, my aim is to share my copywriting knowledge and experience with others so that they might be able to earn money doing it.
This thread is like 10 months old! I was really anoyed that day because I had had one of my hubs stolen (word for word!) and put on another site, then I came across the add for your site saying 'steal peoples work' and that was it I exploded and had a good rant, thats all. Your right I didn't read it and if your company is legit then I'm sorry however I don't think promoting stealing is a very good idea!
At the bottom of that websites, it says "Copyright 2010"
Not everything on Pubic domain is free, but I bet it is something
Once you write something it is protected by copyright and it doesn't expire.

Because Squidoo was set up by the marketing guru Seth Godin, it was famously open to all sorts of marketing. You could post iframes onto your lens. You could post p***. You could have as many do-follow outgoing links as you liked, and you could write about whatever you pleased. It was a truly...

Do we need to backup our Hubpages articles?In the event of a crash, is Hubpages backed up regularly? Or maybe your account was hacked, or even, good forbid, you did something stupid/accidentally and got yourself banned, would you lose access to all your hard work? I always backup my computer, but...
