PRIVATE LABEL Software with Resale Rights
Firstly, it's best not to claim authorship of any private label rights (PLR) content. It was written by someone else, so it doesn't 'sound' like you. Also, if that same content is appearing elsewhere with someone else's name attached, it reflects badly on both 'authors'.
If you're using PLR content to create, for example an ebook to give away then, rather than adding your name, use a more generic approach that doesn't attach you directly to the content.
Personally, I find that the best approach is to use URL(s) that tie in with the content. For example, at the end of an article you could put something like... "For more info about [article subject] visit [website URL]". (Okay, you could make it a bit more enticing than that, but you get the idea). The URL could be your own website or it could be for a related affiliate product you're promoting.
If you're using PLR content purely as content for your website, then you don't need to add anything at all. Just put it up on a page and let the search engines come and get it.
If you're compiling PLR articles into an ebook, again, put something like "Brought to You by [website URL]" rather than "Written by [your name]".

You've probably got heaps of PLR articles on your PC right now that you've never used.
Go take a look through them. Find some with a common theme. Check them for decent quality. Copy and paste them in your text editing software. Place a few ads/links for your own website and/or affiliate websites that tie in with the theme of the content. Put a big bold message at the top encouraging people to give the ebook away to others.
Using an ebook compiler (like the one for free at www.pdf995.com), compile it into an ebook. Make the ebook available for download across the ebook directories, on your own website and anywhere else you can.
If you're into growing your mailing list, put a page online offering the ebook for free in exchange for subscribing.
It's your ebook now, so use it to grow your business. It'll probably start off slowly, but over time these things all add up and pay dividends.
If you start right now, you'll probably have an ebook ready within two hours.
If you don't have any PLR content, you'll find some for free here and here and you'll probably find more if you run a few searches on Google. By the way, I haven't had time yet to study the quality of the articles on either of those sites, so make sure you do so before using them.

Anyway, getting back to the lessons learned...
The second lesson I've learned, of course, is not to use PLR content in your newsletter. You spend too long building a relationship with your subscribers. Don't mess it up by throwing in stuff that just isn't you.
It might save you a bit of time/effort in the short term, but it risks diluting the 'personality' of your newsletter and leaving your subscribers decidedly unimpressed with your lack of a distinct voice of your own.
Is there a third lesson? None I can think of for now... but I guess two isn't bad for a start!
