Plagiarism - Is there any way to stop it?
While surfing Indivine I found my work was copied, the only change was, she added 'sometimes' and changed 'words' to 'air'
Is there any way we can stop Plagiarism?
Now, her blog is restricted. Here's the link to her Indiblogger profile :
Here's another discover:
Shri Jhawar http://www.indiblogger.in/blogger/39200/
Copied Poem: Here (He copied title of one of my poems and text of another to create this post.)
Another Copied Poem Pieces
My Poem: Bits and Pieces
Another one: Meetu K http://www.indiblogger.in/blogger/40750/
Here's the link to her post: What I deserve, copied from my poem It hurts.
Another addition: Keerthana
She has copied two of my poems, 'Who am I, Dad?' and 'Barren Life'
I checked and found that most of the posts on her blog are copied. So, please check for your work.
Reason: Blog Name Added
Saru, please provide here the link to your post and the post she has copied for the proof. Indiblogger punishes plagiarism by removing the posts and at times bloggers from their platform. We are there with you in support against plagiarism.
BTW I cannot access that post. May be it has been removed.
Ma'am she has changed her blog to invitation only. I serioulsy wish we have some way of stopping it.
It proves she does indeed know what mess she has done.

Did a copysafe check of one of the links on that blog, results were that 89% of the page was copied!!
I suupose an algorthm can be written to stop thus. But it would take so long to do a search on all these blogs. This is sad but its happening everywhere. http://www.keralatourism.org/kerala-article/227/paniyeli-poru.phpThat photo was taken by me. And sadly the kerala govt. has stolen it. And so many other bloggers have. I hadn't watermarked it because I want people to share stuff. But they can still put a courtesy nevin thomas under the snap.
Nevin Thomas told me as much on my blog. It feel bad, we choose to not copyright or watermark because we love people sharing stuff, and they let us down! :(
and after a few such incidents, i started to watermark my digital art, i couldn't lose anymore. so have you started to watermark your work yet? please do!
I have started doing it but I feel bad about it. I am not a great photographer like Joshi Daniel or everyone else here. I travel extensively and the Nature has always has something in store for people like me. A rainbow, a purple sunset and so on. So I've always felt that watermarking something that was gifted to you , was unfair. But no one in the net seems to understand the trouble we take to get into these places albeit for the fun of travelling. And that hurts.
Saru, I have once stood the same place as you are now...and also wrote a post about it.Hope it helps.
Excellent post. I sincerely hope THIS is copied though. People should know about it :P
@Nevin...Ah! Thanks...but this was written by my own experience when I needed the same help as Saru .And as you know , codes has to be codes and I have credited the codes .
You are indirectly giving the hint that "you can copy by the feed".So its better to delete that sentence.
What do u say Mam?
@Sampath - The fact is fact...and that was what had happened in my case ..through Feed even though I used right click disabled and selection disabled.So, if there one way to safe gaurd yourself from these (only u really want to), keeping checking and if you find one, mail them or intimate the other side for feedback and if they don't respond any , mail the domain hoster.It works!
as of now, her [i am guessing it is she, though given the plagriarist tendency, one can even steal gender] homepage can be accessed through google cache, though her blog has been made invitation only. how does one get invited to such blogs? do you need to prove your worthiness? how? should you have material worth copying? or should you have been a worthy copier? anyway, here is the google cached page link for those interested. as it is a cached page, it will be there only till the bots do another crawl and update it with the permission denied page.
periodically check your blogs at http://www.copyscape.com to learn about plagiarists.
u may also choose the protection-banner of your choice.
Well, according to me speaking out and putting these things on public forum like on Indiblogger would surely help spread the message and hope the guilty will learn from their mistakes. Good to see her account is deleted.
Even the very best are plaigarists it seems!
This blogger, whoever it is, copied my story word to word. No attribution, no permission. How can one we so heartless to do that? :/
This story was so close to my heart. What do I do now? Can I abuse here?
Is there something I do? and now I think, that whole website contains other people's stuff :(
better give him a call and ask for giving u credit for your post in his webpage or delete that post-
Check out this article on how to takedown on the copied article of your blog.
Hope this will help atleast few.
Even if one thinks this article is usefull then am happy
In reality its really hard to avoid plagiarism. The only way to make an end to it is creating awareness.
I agree Harish. I think it's impossible. Some are intelligent enough to edit the post once you catch them and some are aggrogant enough to admit. I have witnessed copied post getting acclaim on blogging platform. Can it get any worse than that?
Even i feel that getting inspired from and copying is a two different things
but often copy and give it a name of being inspired ....hence it disheartens the person , the creator of the content , about sharing it with others .
Maybe we bloggers should be given a relief with that , so that we can share our content over the internet without any fear....!!
I understand Aryaansh but seems like there is no relief :(
Afshan, please subsribe to CopyScape and also you have proteciton banner and put it on your blog. Also do a periodical scan to know the details for palgarism.
We can't do much. I wrote to this girl who copied my poems and she said 'you are a sweet person and you write such wondeful poetry, so you shouldn't speak like this.' I mean, first they copy, then they teach me how to speak with crooks like them. Can you beat that? Also, disabling copy-paste helps and that's the best you can do.
This is really disgusting, is the person on indiblogger!
If yes, than why can't Indiblogger Team and Moderators, start acting against such bloggers by blocking them on this platform. We shouldn't have a place for them in this forum.
