Do not cut and paste copyrighted material from other websites onto the CMRA website. It is illegal and it pisses off the people who own the websites the material is stolen from, because they rely on the number of unique visitors to their site to sell ads to get the money to pay the employees who produce the original material and run the site. If you want to reference something on another site, use a link to that site. Anybody who thinks it's OK to steal material from a website because "it's a big company, what can it hurt" may want to consider Delta's former presence at DFW Airport--not taking care of the commercial end properly, ran them out of town, so, anything that affects a company's ability to generate revenue to offset costs CAN hurt. It's something to think about, and the bottom line is, do not cut and past copyrighted material from other websites onto
the CMRA website.
