Hello, Poets. I just want to repeat a warning by my publisher that once I post a poem in PoemHunter, I cannot publish the same in amazon.com or any other publisher on account of SELF-PLAGIARISM. Would anybody care to confirm or refute this?I will be grateful for any authoritative view on this matter and I feel, most will be grateful for guidance. Can anybody from PoemHunter comment?

    I googled self-plagiarism and found a decent white paper on it at ithenicate.com. It is new and complex law. My best assessment is change your work a bit if you are going from publication to publication. Hope this helps.

      Hi Andy: Thank you for this info and link. I will now be more cautious about overextending myself on one website that does not produce the results I need.
