Latest Violation (Busted
August 10, 2013):
It's ok to link to GTR's content. It is not
ok to reproduce it entirely.
infringement liability can be extremely expensive. Read this: Copyright
Triangle BJJ is the
latest in a long list of sites that have not been able to resist the temptation
to add value to their site and attract students and customers to their online
shop by pilfering copyrighted content, including but probably not limited to
GTR's Vocabulary and Giria Resource. Check it out
at the original source, pure water!
Other Unresolved Violations.
This site reproduced the
entire GTR article Origems of Jiu-jitsu. They didn’t
try to hide the fact that they got it from GTR. But it is NOT ok to reproduce
GTR content on your site, for the obvious reason that GTR is supported by click-throughs
to amazon, and if you read GTR’s copyrighted original material on a rouge
site, then you aren’t going to click-through from GTR. Suggestion for sites
that need content to attract viewers to their site: Create your own content. Or,
if you want to legally use GTR copyrighted original material, you MAY reprint 25
words (no more than 25, and without any revision or addition of pictures, etc.),
accompanied by a links to Global-Training-Report.com
and the relevant article.

to deceive. This criminal organization sells merchandise over the
internet and asks you provide them with your credit card details. They don't
have a problem with stealing copyrighted intellectual property, but maybe
they'll respect your credit card information?
GTR has mixed feelings about translations of GTR's
copyrighted original content. On one hand, it is strictly speaking, in violation
and subject to all applicable penalties. On the other hand, it is flattering
(which is not to say that we hereby grant any form of permission to do it.) Some French person invested alot of effort to translate many of the GTR
articles, and subsequently posted them on a forum. (Other people have translated
GTR into other languages, including Portuguese, Dutch, and some that we aren't
familiar with, but look like they might be Polish, Czech, or other East European
languages.) We NEVER approve of ANY changes to GTR content, which includes
adding pictures or deleting copyright notices. Since the French person mentioned
above has added some pictures we have no choice but to put the forum that is
supporting him on the Rouge Site's hall of Infamy.
Note: Individuals and organizations who want to translate GTR copyrighted original
content into foreign languages are advised to contact GTR for appropriate
permissions and guidance.
