Exposure is the Real Value

I've had this happen to me on several occasions. The difference is it was articles I wrote for my company, so technically they 'own' the content of my writing. A few blogs and industry news sites reprinted the articles (sometimes w/o my name or any reference to who I work for). The first time I was pretty ticked off. At the time I reported directly to our CEO and he gave me some advice. He suggested I just call them and work out a deal where they credit us and give us a permanent link, which they did. The link turned out to be more valuable and the readers turned into some good leads for us and they kept reprinting our articles so we get even more exposure. As long as I can get credit for writing the article and we get a good link then we're better off with the extra exposure.
