Yes, I will be more careful in future. The main thing is I have not yet deposited my Tree to Society of Genealogists  and relevant CRO's. if they're interested.

I don't mind at all if I get acknowlegement. Also I made a mistake and posted a photograph to another Site. I got it deleted, but someone had lifted it and posted it to their Site. I wrote to them, but as far as I know it's still there.

Actually, within the strict meaning of the word, taking information from a public source; e.g.  something published on a website, or “secondary research” as its called in academic circles, is perfectly legitimate. Its down the the person taking it to demonstrate its relevance to the subject they’re researching, however.
