About Ideas & Attribution
BrutalBusiness.com was created, first and foremost, as a site to publish ideas, insights and musings about business, marketing, technology and software. In the spirit of sharing insights we’ve gleaned during our own adventures in the world, we publish them here in the hope they may be of use to others. You are welcome to use any information published on this site in your free or commercial projects. You are also welcome to link to or reference our content in your own articles, blogs, websites etc.
In return, we simply request that you give proper attribution.
As a core value, we respect the blogosphere’s ethos of collaboration and open discussion of ideas that are published or presented in articles, conferences and public forums. As such BrutalBusiness.com follows, and requests in return, a spirit of recognition for ideas and writings. On the Internet, we recognize that all parties bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table, and therefore our own ideas are shared with the understanding that attribution will be respected, as is common practice in today’s blogosphere.
In short, use of the ideas and content published on this site in the spirit of learning, sharing and discussion is cool. But plagiarizing our ideas and content is not cool – and it’s not allowed.
