Copyright law and content at the Mandela Effect websiteAll articles and comments at this website are copyrighted by Fiona Broome.

However, the original article at this site (but not its comments) is licensed under a Creative Commons (Attribution – NonCommercial – No Derivs) license.

In other words, you can copy and post that one article – but not the comments with it – at your own website.

This does NOT mean I’m releasing copyrights to all content that’s appeared at this site.

The Creative Commons license applies only to that one article, not to the related comments.

A few sleazy marketers have tried to co-opt the Mandela Effect for profit. Some are using the term “Mandela Effect.” Others had copied large portions of this site, word for word, as filler for their books.

Personally, I’m stunned that anyone would stoop to that level.

So, I’m going to repeat this, so it’s clear: You may not copy any article from this website, except the original Nelson Mandela article, and only under the Creative Commons license.

You may NOT copy this site’s comments.

No comments will be licensed for use by others, and I’m in the process of removing personally identifying content from all comments that originally appeared at this website. (That information is also removed before my books are published.)

That’s to protect commenters’ privacy.

If you find articles or comments from this website at others’ websites or in others’ books, please report them to the hosting service or the seller.

If you find my other articles – or any comments from this site – in a book (other than mine) at Amazon, here’s their copyright infringement report form:

If you have accidentally used content from this website in books or other commercial products, please un-publish that book or product immediately.

Thank you.
