    I just added a line about where this was stolen from. I've noticed that the plagiarist, in lifting my "Brain-scan" included the line attributing the idea for it to Virgil. I'm hoping that others will take up my idea of posting their own poems to http://forum.3rbdream.net/dream29/ before the plagiarist can do so. The administrator of that site has been notified by Sophia that this is going on but obviously has no intention of exiling the plagiarist. I've also urged our own Administrator to take this up with Google.

    In our local Sunday paper the editor's weekly column stated that the AP (Associated Press) has an application which traces the source every time some other publication copies one of its articles and prints it in its own publication. Evidently the AP can then bill (or sue) the periodical which pilfered AP's intellectual property.

    Maybe there's a similar app that LitNet could use?

    I've written Admin about this but their position is that since they don't own the copyright on the plagiarized material, there's nothing they can do, but it might not hurt to bring your info to their attention.

    You punned it strikingly.

    “Those who seek to satisfy the mind of man by hampering it with ceremonies and music and affecting charity and devotion have lost their original nature””

    “If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.

    I sent a formal copyright infingement document to PCCW Global, the apparent owner of the website. They can remove the poems if they will.

    24 hours to respond with their intentions is the legal time limit. I'll post whatever response I get. If it is positive I will be happy to post the completed template for all to use and just substitute your own information.

    Thanks to Sophia, Symphony, and Monamy for their efforts in providing information and posting acknowledgements in the Arab Dream Forums.

    Hats off to you for doing that. If I knew how to navigate the thicket of URLs, links &c. I'd do the same - and if you do post the template, I'd use it.

    How do you effectively monitor plagiarism?

  12. #12
    And who are you going to sue and where.

    All this is hatred.

    Let it be.

    What you write is what you write.

    that's it.

    No one can recapture that moment.

    To Vagantes, message #12:

    Have you checked to see whether any of your poems were pilfered? And if they were, are you still as laid-back about it as in your above post? It's theft, dude, as if someone had broken into your house, taken something and then found a fence to take it off his or her hands.

    This is our communal house and our poems are the equivalent of our material possessions.

    I feel the same way yet I wonder if this remark is a case of 'size matters'. What I'm trying to say is that I write short stories as well and I would be especially miffed if they were stolen. Perhaps a few lines of verse are not regarded as important? All original work is of course and we should not minimise their relevance based on size....

    just a thought

    Of course size does NOT matter! I've written an eight word poem I'm rather proud of. Happily I posted it here long before the plagiarizer began his or her work here.
