It's practically the start of the weekend and while we should be sharing something happy and frivolous to start the fun, we just couldn't motivate ourselves yesterday to get a post together after a bit of a rough week!
What could possibly have put Lily Lemontree (and Bebe Daniels above!) in such a foul mood on a Friday morning, you ask? Unfortunately, during our regular virtual travels on the web, we came across a blog that has decided to repost every single one of our posts since July 2012 on their blog as their own!
Over 100 posts, copied and pasted and credited to a plagiarist that seems to be impersonating some Asian celebrity!
Almost as soon as our posts go up, this character starts left clicking and lifting our posts onto their site. As you can imagine our stomachs started to turn when we saw this and for a couple of days, felt helpless, hopeless and beyond frustrated. It's almost impossible to battle someone or something as intangible as a virtual person with no real name or profile but we have done what we can and reported them to Blogger and the US DMCA. To be honest, we hadn't felt like posting at all this week since we figured that it would only be a matter of time before the plagiarist posted our material on their site too but we decided early this morning not to let this bring us down anymore.
Hear that Mr. 'Whoever-you-are', we are washing you and this 'little bump' out of our hair.
We are done!
Check back later this afternoon for our Cocktail Hour post!
(Ed. Note-And just like that, less than 10 minutes after we originally posted this, it is up on this other site! Really unbelievable that they would choose to re-post even this that calls them out!)
