  22. 22. Control vs. propagation 23 "Which path is right for you? It depends on your objective. Educational content is meant to be shared and an All Rights Reserved license is going to reduce your reach.

You’re not going to get paid unless you’ve built up sufficient authority. The more you restrict your content, the more you reduce your chances of building authority.” control-content/
