      lol

      That is a really good sales pitch. I think I will "steal" it.

      If I was making hundreds of thousands of dollars doing that, I wouldn't be messing around trying to sell the "secret" to anyone else. lol

      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

          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

            wrenfrost56posted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Right, still I don't think it's a concept I would buy into!

              me neither!

    2. sunforged profile image75
      sunforgedposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      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

      <link snipped>

      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

        AEvansposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        I didn't notice I just clicked but thanks for the info, no matter where we go, mo matter what we do someone is always trying to do something. How can people do that and feel good about themselves? sad

    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?

    1. wrenfrost56 profile image82
      wrenfrost56posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      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? smile

    I know...I know..

    And this company are the most brutal when it comes to copyright infringement, or perceived infringement...

    Eaglekiwiposted 8 years ago

    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 lol

    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.

    lol 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! smile

    At the bottom of that websites, it says "Copyright 2010"
    Funny.
    Not everything on Pubic domain is free, but I bet it is something
    like that.
    Once you write something it is protected by copyright and it doesn't expire.
