This evening, we were appalled to see that some ‘fan’ of Twilight thought it was acceptable to steal material from the Twilight Lexicon, and reproduce it on another website as their own. You can see an example of this on this page where our timeline has been reproduced without permission. This thief has also taken character bios and other parts of the lexicon, freely admitting that they had taken it from us, despite our copyright notification at the footer of each Lexicon page.
At the Lexicon, we take a very dim view of this copyright theft. All material posted on this site belongs either to us, or to Stephenie Meyer herself. Anyone who reproduces this material elsewhere is violating the ownership of the documents here. To prevent this again, we have instructed a lawyer to draw up a terms of service, which will be posted on the site, to give us further legal recourse, should this kind of theft happen again.
We will not accept the stealing of our hard work. We work hard on this site because we love Twilight and the world that Stephenie has created for us and want to share it with all of you. A copyright violation complaint has been made with the webhost of the site that has stolen our material and we expect the relevant sections of the site to be removed forthwith.
