Blog Post Text Licensed under a Creative Commons License to Encourage PLR Conversation

One of the reasons this blog exists is, to keep the PLR conversation going. So, in an effort to encourage discussions around Private Label Rights, I've decided to license PLR Insight blog post text that I have written, under a Creative Commons license.

October 2013 update: text from certain blog posts on PLR Insight are licensed under a CC-BY license. If the text of a post is under a CC-BY license, it will be indicated at the bottom of the post.

For the Sake of the Conversation
When I first mentioned my plan on starting the Free PLR Content Finding Service, one of the reasons I mentioned was to encourage conversations around Private Label Rights.

October 2013 update: The Free PLR Content Finding Service is no longer available, but you can find a list of PLR Content Providers over here.

I'm convinced that the Private Label Rights industry can be a lot better than what it is now. But, if the Private Label Rights industry is to improve, then there needs to be more conversation around Private Label Rights.

I'm hoping that, by licensing PLR Insight blog post text that I wrote, under a Creative Commons license, that it will result in more conversations around Private Label Rights.

What the Creative Commons licensed blog post content means to you
I'm licensing PLR Insight blog post text under a CC-BY license, the most open of all the Creative Commons licenses... next to the public domain Creative Commons license.

edit: The Creative Commons website (Creativecommons.org) explains the different Creative Commons licenses much better than I could. Find out about all the Creative Commons licenses over here.

Here's a quote taken from Creativecommons.org explaining the Creative Commons CC-BY license:

"This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation." 

This means that you can share and use PLR Insight blog post text, edit and change, make derivative works from it and even use it for commercial purposes, just as long as you provide attribution to Plrinsight.com (as well as a link back if used online).

Since it's licensed under a Creative Commons license, you don't have to ask for my permission to use PLR Insight blog post text. But, when you do use PLR Insight blog post text, give credit to Plrinsight.com.

When you incorporate PLR Insight blog post text into other works, or create new works from it, simply give credit to Plrinsight.com for the original work, not the derivative work that you created from it. In other words, mention that the new work incorporates or contains content based on content from Plrinsight.com.

The attribution can be simple. It could even be as simple as, Text Source: Plrinsight.com or This [work] Contains text from Plrinsight.com or This [work] is based on/contains text from Plrinsight.com.

You can also decide on the wording to use. As far as the link back goes, you can either link back to the home page or to the specific blog post.

Why would I do this?
I don't really mind if you use PLR Insight blog post text, even if you use it in ways that will result in you making money. At the very least, PLR Insight gets some more exposure. But, I'm also hoping that by going this, it helps to encourage more conversation around Private Label Rights.

edit: There's a lot of room for the Private Label Rights Industry to improve and grow. But, I'm convinced that in order for the Private Label Rights industry to improve and grow, there needs to be more conversation around Private Label Rights.

One of the reasons why I started the Free PLR Content Finding Service, was to encourage conversations around Private Label Rights. Licensing this blog's text under a Creative Commons license is another way to encourage conversation around Private Label Rights.

Other Ways PLR Insight is encouraging PLR Conversations
As I mentioned, apart from making it easier for you to use PLR Insight text, one of the other ways that I'm hoping will increase the PLR Insight conversation, is through the Free PLR Content Finding Service.

I've also made it easier to share resources created by PLR Insight, by licensing some of them under a Creative Commons license (the resource will mention which particular CC license it's licensed under).

Although the Creative Commons license these resources are licensed under aren't as open as the license used from blog post content, the Creative Commons license still makes it easy to share those resources with others.

Finally, I'm also open to any thoughts or questions you have related to Private Label Rights. This blog allows blog comments. So, you could leave a comment on the relevant blog post. Or, you can email me (see contact page). I can't guarantee that I can definitely reply to each and every email... or that I will have answers to your questions. But, I'll try my best, given time constraints and all that, to reply.
