11 Please Help me..!! There is a COPYCAT Around..!!

Someone is copying and pasting articles from "The Bike Chronicles of India".. Please Help Me..!!

They say, "Imitation is the Best form of Flattery..". But honestly I am not impressed or flattered.

Please help me stop this COPYCAT or else I might lose inspiration to continue blogging on "The Bike Chronicles of India"

Thanks to my friend and fellow blogger Kedar Parikh who pinged me on this, there seems to be a COPYCAT on the internet who has been stealing stuff from "The Bike Chronicles of India" and posting them as his own.

Update: 18:00 hrs, 21'st Dec 2007

Thanks everyone for your support.. the blog owner has apologized publicly and has removed all the copied posts from his blog. Every thing is cool now.

I could have ignored this incident, but it hurts to see the hours of my dedicated work being copied and pasted just like that.

Thanks once again to everyone.




This COPYCAT has copied two of my recent posts verbatim down to the last punctuation and pasted on his blog..!!

.

There is another post on that COPYCAT Blog which is another straight lift from a blog called Vicky.In

It is my humble request to all the visitors/readers of "The Bike Chronicles of India" to "FLAG" THIS COPYCAT. Just follow the arrowmark as shown in the above screenshot to find the FLAG BUTTON. Visit the COPYCAT BLOG and then kindly FLAG it.

I just hope blogger/google will do the rest.

Please help me stop this COPYCAT or else I might lose inspiration to continue blogging on "The Bike Chronicles of India".

I have flagged!
Hey all out there! Please flag that blog! Fight for the noble and hard working owner of this blog! Flag now!
As you see Mr. Satadal Payeng works so much to write articles and gathering information! So we all must fight for him!

The only thing you can do (legally) is report it to his ISP. ISPs have the legal obligation to make sure no illegal stuff is happening.

Payeng said...

Thanks Anirban,

@ Mike, can you tell me how do I get to know the ISP of this COPYCAT Blog..??

HI PAYENG YOU URSELF COPY FROM FROM REARSET AND OTHER BLOGS WNY R U TEELLING HIM A COPYCAT, ASK HIM TO GIV FULL REFERENCE TO YOUR SITE

Subhankar said...

I have flagged it too. As he is using blogger.com so I think there is no use of complaining to any ISP as anyone can get an a/c in blogger and start blogging. Hope the blog will get enough flags to get attention of blogger.com admins. Anyways that cheap blog is not as important as I am sure there won't be a single reader. Chill Payeng...we are with you and we will get to know stuffs from 2wheelsindia only. Its done by some noob trying to blog thats it. Chill.

looks like the person has understood his/her mistake as now i can only see a apology post out there

@payeng the isp cannot do anything about this nor legal action can be taken coz ur content isnt copyrighted by any legal organization or authorized party

Sajal Chakraborty said...
