Welcome to Writing@StonyBrook!
The purpose of this project is to introduce you to our Program in Writing and Rhetoric and to provide resources and support for faculty who are using ePortfolios in writing courses and writing-intensive courses. It is also a place for WRT faculty and students to find practical guidelines for creating a great writing-intensive ePortfolio. We also welcome students to explore these resources to better understand the role of ePortfolios in writing-intensive work and courses, and to understand the role of writing in their academic and personal lives.
Fall 2018: Due to recent changes to the Digication system, some of our pages have been taken offline until we have a chance to revise them. Your patience is greatly appreciated.

Hi Minerva, since people can cut and paste, there's not really any way of locking down public content to prevent from them doing that on most platforms. But licensing your works is a good idea. A formal CC license, visible on the page, tells readers precisely what your limits are to sharing your work. I have a license for most of the work on my eports, which is CC attribution-non-commercial-sharealike. This means they can use my work as long as they attribute me by name and use the same license in works they make with mine. There are more restrictive licensing and less restrictive. Even though an unlicensed work is covered in copyright as yours by default, the visible license telling them this makes them aware of your desires. Many people who repost your work are not malicious, but acting without awareness, so a license will make them think. Then, if someone steals your work, the first thing you can do is write to them and ask them to take it down or give attribution (as per your wishes).
If someone is maliciously stealing your work and trying to make money off of it, you might want to consider legal counsel.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or
outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it
up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to help prevent content
from being stolen? I'd definitely appreciate it.
