Re: Reclaiming my research (1) The Greville Pearl earrings

It's not a fair world at all Beth. When I did my first and second degrees; 'research was a major part of both, but we were taught that if we wanted to include any literature to our work, we would legally have to site the source and author of it. Sadly with all the laws on infringement of intellectual property and rights, they have not majorly dented the regular practice of persons claiming others work and or eroding one's intellectual property rights. And it's very pervasive on the internet where persons can hide behind aliases and a machine. I'm not sure you may want to expense yourself in tracking down and or making legal challenges in this media space as it will be difficult and time consuming to prove your side. We/I know that you do genuine and factual work along with the other mentioned posters. I can make no real suggestions as how you can avoid and work around this ongoing matter but you do have options if you so wish to officially address it. I want to wish you all the best in that regard.
Unless I see some major changes in various sites, I plan to do a series of posts to reclaim my work.
If bloggers do not acknowledge my research, I will start to name sites which infringe on my intellectual property rights.
Since I posted that Princess Margaret's pearl earrings came from Mrs Greville in April 2017 on the Royal Jewels of the World Message Board , every "expert" seems to think they have the right to present that information as their own. They cannot.
Being able to do a Google search does not constitute research or allow the key board shortcut researcher to claim the outcome of another's work.
