    It might not be new but I just noticed this.

    I borrowed a little snippet from ezine to rewrite into an article I am working on. When I copied and pasted the snippet into my editor for rewriting it pasted the url of the original article as well.

    See below. Copied and pasted a single sentence from random article.

    Code:
    Starting up your own business online is a lot  simpler than starting an offline business in a shop or an office.
    
    Article  Source: http://EzineArticles.com/6803444
    
    Like I said its new to me. Just thought that if anyone is using software to grab and rewrite ezine articles. This might be an issue.

    It is done with JS. You will notice that if you copy with JS disabled that message will not be added. Same with ehow.

    Generally most scraping bots do not execute JS.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Ive not written any content in awhile but I usually copy and paste snips from different articles just for reference when I do. Was just surprised to see the article source link and thought I would post it here.

    I dont use any software but thought this might be a big deal for those that do. Thanks again for clearing that up.
