ok so say you research some information on someone in your family from a long time ago - that person died 60 years ago. You get all the information from members of your family and local newspaper archives, and the record of births/marriages/deaths. You don't use any information that was gleaned from someone else's research, just your own. You write a small article (around 500 words ish) which is published on a national website. Another member of your family then contacts you, asking you to remove the article because he believes it breaches copyright law.....because there is currently a book being written about the exact same person (which you have not had any previous knowledge of)..... Could this be an issue? I am thinking that because knowledge available publicly and through family members was used in the article, that there is no copyright issue....is that right?
