Anyone who works with content has to take into copyright into consideration. Bloggers, content creators, copywriters, and content marketers all have to refer to and use the work of others. That is all part of the job, and in itself, there is nothing wrong with that.
The problem arises when copyright isn’t respected, whether knowingly or unwittingly.
