Fight Against Plagiarism

Posted by The Queen Bee at Saturday, May 30, 2009
I have blogged about this on my other blog but I am re-posting it here again for more coverage.

I have come across several bloggers already who complain about their posts being copied by other bloggers without their consent and the offending party claiming ownership over their work. The thought of this just makes me cringe. One unfortunate incident is that of a blogger whose opportunity post was disapproved because her work was stolen by another blogger and got credit for it. That was so horrible. To make an end to this, a few bloggers have started this campaign and Tes finally tagged me on this.

For those who copy written works of other people, did you know that it is a crime? Yes, the word for it is plagiarism and it is punishable by law.

copy from here:



What is Plagiarism?



According to Dictionary, Plagiarism is the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work.

To all Bloggers who exert effort to create noteworthy entries and who continue to maintain a Blog which is a reflection of who she / he is, " Good job! "

To those who have the desire to Blog but are merely scraping contents from other people' s materials, " Whether you are monetizing your site to help you with your basic needs or to satisfy some of your wants, do it the proper way. Stop making money out of someone else's work. Otherwise, you are nothing but a common thief!"

I encourage all other bloggers to join us in this campaign. Let us help stop plagiarism.
