We are hearing of more and more cases in which articles from Taken In Hand have been used without attribution and without permission, and even worse, in some cases individuals are claiming to have written the articles themselves.

While it is very nice that people like Taken In Hand articles so much that they want to claim to have written them themselves and use them elsewhere, this is wrong. Please do not to do this.

You don't need to steal articles. We are not unreasonable. If you want to use part of an article (a few paragraphs, not the whole thing), tell us please before you do, and attribute it as follows:
