Most of the time, when you create a post on a website, CMS or blog, the URL is generated automatically based on your post's title.
You can even customize your URL by removing words like and, at, or, as well as hyphens, apostrophes, and the like.
I personally don't waste too much time on the issue and, with some rare exceptions, I always prefer natural language URLs. The important thing...

Following a survey conducted by WatchMouse that revealed URL shorteners are not speed champions, we wondered how our own internal URL system fared in comparison.

As previously mentionned in the post Even stories written by freelancers for your Web site are protected by the Copyright Act, frelancers and other contract workers remain the owners of their copyrights unless an assignment of rights or licence contract is signed by the freelancer and yourself.
In other words, what you are paying for is the manpower, not the final product. The result of t...
