Meirav's Blog

Once again I see a fellow blogger post something that is a complete copy&paste of someone else’s article. I’m hoarse from trying to get people to understand that it’s not okay to do that, that it’s a breach of copyright even if you say where you got it from – unless you’ve been given permission by the copyright owner (normally the author), you are not allowed to reproduce their whole article on your own blog.

There was a lot of neat things and it was vastly different from your typical rainforest…but I’m just going to take advantage of this post to upload a few pretty pictures versus typing a whole lot. Enjoy!!
