End of Saga
Ancestry.com claims the removal of the Internet Biographical Collection is permanent. They've apologized to Janice for stealing from her blog. It's time to move on to other topics. They will be there with some great materials for researchers willing to pay the price. They have competition which will hopefully also continue to bring new resources to researchers. I just hope that none of them will again "lift data" and repackage it. I have no objection to search engines which link to the original data, but copying the data without permission is another matter entirely. I applaud Ancestry.com's decision to permanently remove the collection.
