Ideas Are Free But Content Isn’t – Copyright and the Internet

On March 15, 2011, in Editorial Advisory Board, Heather Bussing, HRExaminer, by Heather Bussing
It takes a lot of investment in time and energy to create something—not so much to steal it from someone else.

Copyright does not cover the ideas themselves. Where does this leave works on the Internet?

Does Authenticity Make Your Butt Look Big?

On February 17, 2011, in Editorial Advisory Board, Heather Bussing, HRExaminer, by Heather Bussing
Asking yourself if you are being authentic enough is like asking if your jeans make your butt look big.  The questions are equally narcissistic and no one is going to tell you the truth.  (By the way, transparency always makes your butt look big.)

On January 12, 2011, in Heather Bussing, HRExaminer, by Heather Bussing

The language of elder abuse law is so broad that it applies to virtually every business transaction with someone who is 65 years or older. It’s an important emerging HR topic that you’ll want to get ahead of. Lawyer and HRExaminer Editorial Advisory Board contributor Heather Bussing gives us the lowdown.
