Ebook Publishing for the Lazy and Unethical

As I noted in my posting below, my blog got plagiarized. The thieving site, is the ironically named Write (Create) Your Own Ebook (write-your-own-e-book.info/blog/judging-an-ebook-publisher-by-the-covers). I'm not including a clickable linky, because they don't deserve the linkage.

The site is selling a book on how to write a book without actually doing any of your own writing. They [site owners] demonstrate this with their blog, which steals other people's blog postings, without giving clear, attribution to the author. (Burying a link at the end, is not clear attribution.) The blog allows no comments; there is no contact information included; and their Whois information is hidden.

Some say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but, me I'd prefer cold, hard cash, or at least correct attribution--My name (P. Kirby) on the article--of my work.

Blog plagiarism is theft.
