How to handle copyright infringement

BY ALICIA CALZADA

Q: We live and work in a super-competitive environment and that’s why I do my darndest to hire and keep such a talented staff. Their work jumps out and grabs readers and advertisers in every issue. But now and then, we find (or are told about) content produced by our staff in other newspapers, free sheets and in social media. We didn’t put it there, and we didn’t give permission. Any suggestions?
