Copied content in deal submissions

submitted on January 29, 2009 by h0n9tran in "Buxr Website / Contests", last updated on June 21, 2012 by YanBz
I haven't noticed anywhere noting on the site that we were not allowed to post content that happened to be on other sites. I am only posting this topic to get a better understanding of the rules of the site.

Does Buxr only want unique content that has not been upload to other deal sites? if so, then 80-95% of the deals posted on this site are copies of other sites.

Buxr folks...please expound!!!

    I don't get what your saying. A lot of deals here are found on other sites.

      Huh... I did not look at it that way Steve. Good Question. I thought they were talking about item descriptions on submissions versus the item post/deal in total itself. A clarification is needed.

    Did you get a deal rejected due to it being a Duplicate?? Is that what your talking about?

    The rule is simple. You can post deals found on other deal sites, but you can't copy their deal description verbatim. This is copyrighted content which belongs to that deal site, and it will be rejected. The workaround for this is to describe the deal in your own words.

    Hope this helps.

      What about deals that have coupon codes unique to a specific deal site? Wouldn't that fall under the "copied content" area? I've seen several like that, and wondered if the admins would clarify that specific point. Thanks.
      Example: http://www.buxr.com/deal/spiri.....item_35540

      Spirit Halloween – 20% off any 1 Item

      *DealCatcher Exclusive* Spirit Halloween

      Coupon Code: DealCatcher20

    Bumping up this topic to explain to our newer members exactly what we mean by "no copied content."
    Of course many of you see deals on other sites that you'd like to post on Buxr. You can post the offers, but you have to link directly to the site or product. You should not link through the other deal site and you should not copy their descriptions verbatim. That text is legally theirs and should not simply be pasted as-is into a description on Buxr. Just explain the offer in your own words, or from text on the store site (like listing the exclusions).

    I really don't have time to shop other sites and most sites look like a mobile app, which I hate the layout.
    Buxr is easy on the eyes and easy to navigate!
