The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

Copyscape and copyright protection

The observant among you may have noticed the appearance of a purple box, with the word "Copyscape", beneath the usually relevant ads in the yellow box at the bottom of the page. What is this you may ask?

It is a copyright declaration and symbol of protection from copyright theft. What does copyscape do? Copyscape scans the internet for copies of a web page and submits a report to the owner of the site that tells him or her whether or not the site has been copied.

The next step is legal action. What are the fines? Up to $50,000 U.S dollar fines per infringement, which would mean per item - and there are a lot of items on a page/site/blog. Furthermore, legal costs would have to be borne which could easily run into six figures. That is the norm under international copyright laws. Why, then, do people steal? Because they forget that these days it is very easy to find out if you have done so: and so very easy to pursue it. Also, many people are quintessentially lazy and prefer to derivate rather than create.

This site is protected by Copyscape - so please respect the copyright of the owner, Valentine Cawley, bearer of the face found on this website - it is better for me and cheaper for you, if you do. Thanks.
