untitled[edit]

I think that one of the language links on this page is incorrect. While playing around, I clicked on a link that I believe takes one to the Farsi edition of this page (http://fa.wikipedia.org/wiki/حق_تکثیر). It has a large copyright symbol on it, leading me to believe it a copyright article, and not about copywriting. I do not know how to fix this, but perhaps someone does.

Merging 'copy' (written) with 'copywriting' seems incorrect, to me.

Though 'copy' does describe the commercially purposed work produced by a copywriter (of which I am one myself), 'copy' is also in general parlance to describe that editorially purposed work which is filed by a journalist to a paper or magazine. But this work is quite different in nature from the work of the 'copywriter'.

Fair enough, but the use of "copy" for non-advertising uses is covered in Copy (written), and otherwise the two articles cover identical subjects. Thus, I support the proposed merge. Jlittlet 18:53, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
I do not support the proposal to merge. Copywriting is largely a promotional commercial activity, while Copy (written) refers to any form of written text that an editor works on, covering a much wider range. Gnusmas 07:45, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

This looks to me like a consensus NOT to merge these two. Furthermore, I have done a substantial edit to [{Copy (written)]] to make it more distinct. I am therefore removing the merge tags. Gnusmas 15:44, 15 October 2006 (UTC)


Looking at "Jenny Brown" and "11 Ways..." as inappropriate external links. Both offer services for hire. Brown is obvious, 11 Ways only slightly less so. Will delete 9.22.06 if no comments prior. Globaledits 02:00, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Merge with Community Manager?[edit]

I am not an expert but I've read on some blogs that Copywriter 2.0 is equivalent to Community Manager. Am I wrong? --AlbertJB (talk) 08:37, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
