Another plagiariser on the Web!

I once tasted the frustration of someone stealing my thoughts and publishing it as his own, when the ‘renowned’ Dr Dipak Basu of Nagasaki University lifted my blog post and published it almost unchanged in the RSS weekly ‘The Organiser’. You can read that experience here. Today I found another fraud on the Web. The person lifted my blog post on CelCabs and published it unchanged here. I reckon all of the posts on the blog MSJawahar are lifted from random blogs.

  1. that is so heartbreaking to suddenly find somebody else taking credits for your own work. it is like robbing of your own kids and taking them to beg…

    have had similar experiences before with a newspaper..

    Yes, the laws apply to blogs also. I have clearly given the copyright laws on my blog, but still someone wants to take the ownership of my work…

  3. Sreejith I think placing copyright is not the only solution…

    You(blog/website owned by you) needs to be registered under copyright laws to be called a copyright website…

    I think so…

    I don't think that is required. I had consulted this with some experts. They told me that placing this information is enough. Need to verify.

    Hahaha.. Thanks Scorpio; I hadn't noticed the deletion! I had posted a message on his blog regarding this!

    Well, I am unable to give you an answer for that. Plagiarism in blogs is most common now. Some people notice it, and some don't. It takes a lot of effort to track these individuals and proceed. Most people wouldn't bother. Flagging is an option to report such issues. But I am not sure how effective that could be.

    I don't think it's worth the time and money. For example, if you want to file a case against The Organiser, you need to file that in Mumbai or Delhi.. 😦

    And this case, you don't know who this stupid MSJawahar is! πŸ™‚
