Our copy text, logos, designs, and everything we create are copyrighted. This includes our own website and all of our clients' websites. We protect and enforce our copyrights.
PaperStreet upholds the principle of professional integrity, which is achieved, in part, by properly referencing and citing content from other web-based sources.
Plagiarism is a fundamental offense against web best practices and an expression of poor judgment. Plagiarism can damage your credibility and duplicate copy has a negative effect on search rankings. Plagiarism also violates the law and result in serious legal and monetary repercussions. For these reasons, PaperStreet strongly discourages copying content from other sites on the web and encourages unique, engaging content on every page.
If PaperStreet detects content on your website that has been copied from other sources on the web without proper citation, we maintain the right to:
- Refuse to publish pages with copied content (you can publish them yourself)
- Remove any links to your website from our blog or social media accounts, disassociating from your firm or business, including website credit
In addition, if your website is found to contain plagiarized content we will not:
- Submit the website for an award
- Feature the website on our online portfolio, or anywhere on the PaperStreet website
- Promote the website launch via our blog and social media accounts
- Reference the website in any public relations material
If you are struggling to provide unique content for your site, we encourage you to take advantage of our content writing services or hide the pages from view and populate them with unique content when you are able. An approaching deadline is not an excuse for plagiarism. You can write unique content that differentiates your firm.
Finally, under The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) if you are found to have plagiarized text and we are notified, then we are required to remove those pages from the web.
