re: I'm concerned with the move that FreeCodeCamp just pulled by leaving Medium VIEW POST


They have not taken everyone's medium content with them as you asserted. They only moved articles that they had control over. The rest of the articles are still available on medium as they stated in their release at


Medium has a very strict TOS and FCC technically has no control over it.


Which is why they did not move it as the article claims. I may be wrong in my interpretation of what the article says though.

The title of the free code camp link literally says "We just moved off of Medium and onto freeCodeCamp News. Here’s how you can use it"

So they did move off it. Regardless, there are huge intellectual property issues with it. In this case, the original post was on dev. They are no longer using the proper canonical URL to link to the original source.

They moved but did not take peoples articles with them as Ben seemed to state in this article. Those are still on medium which was my point. They only moved their own articles and not those people published under their banner. Those are still available on medium.

That's not true at all - this article is by Ali and on FreeCodeCamp. They took that content from Medium and posted it there with them as the author. Even if they are fixing it, that doesn't make it chill to just take that content.

Did not notice that. My bad.

That changes everything then. Especially since the authors name was not stated clearly.

Thanks for that clarification and pointing out that oversight on my part.

Interpreted what she wrote incorrectly as I was unaware of all that was involved in their move. I thought they only moved their own stuff. I was wrong about that clearly. Thanks
