Home Seeing Double

I note that of late, some of my reviews have been plagiarised by others in part or sometimes in full. Come on! The attempt to pass off the plagiarised work as your own is simply dishonest.

I’ve had my designs plagiarised and sent for print, and I’ve had my articles plagiarised by others. *Edited 26th June 2009 @ 11am: Merely changing the original sentence from active to passive or passive to active is also a form of plagiarism* As a writer, I feel that it is worse to have my writing style plagiarised than to have my photos used without permission. I spend a great deal of time describing the food I eat and the experiences that come with it.

When my writing gets plagiarised, I feel robbed. And cheated. It sucks even more when the plagiariser is better known than I am. Makes it look as though I’m the one who’s duplicating the writing style.

To plagiarisers,
