Recently two of our blogger friends raised the voice against plagiarism when they suffered terribly with this infection as their posts were been reposted without their concern in some other blogs. In simple language their Posts and Photographs were stolen. Jaya and Pree both are the victims of this awful crime. But in no time anybody can be the victim of this plague. Even we don't know whether our works are already been stolen or not!! Then why we still are sitting idle and waiting for to see more plagiarist victims !!
We blog because we love to be get connected with people through the works which we cherish in our lone and creative hours. We are blogging not to earn money through it or there is no obligation that we have to blog because of some grand fortune. This is a kind of blood and breath for us when we inhale a peace of breath through our blogs. It's like a baby for us whom we are nurturing so gently, with so much care to feel a pacification mainly when you can not go out. It gives you a way to get connected with people. It gives you satisfaction when you get appreciated by any of your creative work. It is also a way where you can get a recognition which is earned entirely by your own hard work.
But when we see a scratch on these babies' body it's really a heartrending situation for us. It might be healed in no time when we will just sigh and this will be a pastime regretting story for us. But what about those thieves?? Isn't there any way to punish them or raise a unified voice against this atrocious act. Blogging is not a silly joke or a minute's play which we do with in a second. Each post is a hard planned project where you involve your creativity, sources of knowledge to work it best as a magnet to draw the attention of the reader.
It is not a question of taking any legal action and sue the copycats. But let us make a unified world to fight against these offenses. Let us make a Forum on "Fake Bloggers" and highlight those weirdoes. Let us spread our voice and make everybody attentive against this malady. At least we can make them think twice before they steal any hard work to fulfill their own purpose.
We can not stop plagiarism but we can at list fight for it. Let us start the fight right now……..Who are going to join ??
I want to know your views.
