What interesting is that Copy Cat Alpaca Farm has a copyright protection notice on their website so I'm pretty sure that they know plagiarism is a no-no. I've emailed this farm as well as left messages on their voicemail and I haven't received a response as to why they thought this was okay. According to the Copyright Website (notice how I give credit to the source as well as provide a link to the website) "almost everything on the Net is protected by copyright law."
I have to say that I am highly disappointed as this farm is located in Missouri and I will likely see them at seminars and shows.
PS. If you like the advert and need one of you own, I'd be happy to write one for you.
