Allegations of Copyright Infringement Unfounded - 07/20/2010
Links and website titles in list format are NOT copyrightable. If the list is displayed in a graphically designed format, the format design itself is copyrightable in the way that the list is displayed.

I had a blog post that someone said I copied from her blog.
The post contained a list of links. The integrity of HER BLOG was kept intact whereby the graphic design of her list AND blog WAS NOT COPIED. WebRing decided to delete my post (AFTER several months without notifying me) WebRing did this EVEN AFTER the post was redone a second time to show the difference between the accusers blog post and MINE. There is NO WAY that WebRing Blog's could copy an entire page due to the format and nature of WebRing's Blog publisher ANYWAY!

What is WebRing's policy with regards to allegations of copyright infringement and how does WebRing handle communications with BOTH parties - the party reporting an allegation of infringement and the party being accused?

Replied - 07/21/2010
The blog was reviewed by several people and deemed to be a substantial copy/paste of the page of the person filing the complaint.

WebRing's policy is to abide by the wishes of the owner when the owner can demonstrate reasonably well that something of theirs has been copied.

Because the underlying HTML code was identical to that of the author's page we had to conclude it was a copy/paste.
