I am really curious to know how many bloggers really write original content .. i was reading a very popular blog recently and to my utter shock the blog owner had reproduced the same content from another blog.

All the content on our website is orignal. One or two posts might be reproduced with permission from the orignal author. Have a look www.ltgtr.in

In general also, I think the majority of people write their own stuff. Or so we hope Cool

Sharing online is a risk one had to take. Even movies and books get pirated.

Agreed to TF! So much of my stuff has been used from communities in which I used to post long back and now when I thought of bringing it on my blog, i found, they were already there.

we all are genuine bloggers. thinking of COPYING other's work doesnt even cross one's mind. It is the same as someone else copying YOUR stuff and claiming it to be their own. that would really suck wont it?

as TF said, if it is the question of who has original contest in their blogs, you wont be disappointed with mine @Sangeetha. It's totally original and true :)

Thanks Sangeetha. Do keep following. Glad you like my reviews. Plan to do them throughout the year if time permits.

Kriti - you will be surprised how well people can reproduce without even mentioning credits as it was their own brain-child .. Plagiarism is a huge for us .. the more we denounce it publicly the better for us .. I have not seen any of your work but will surely be doing so ... mean while do have a look at sangrywords.blogspot.com

There are many as you say, Sangeeta. It's quite big! And too many to control, sadly.

 

Please do not post your links in the forum threads. It is against the forum ethics, as DS mentioned to the Magazine, and to Ashwini.

It is true that a lot of blogs exist that just pick up other's content and reproduce. Then there are blogs that produce their own content. I am sure that discerning readers will know the difference. It is sad if a blogger were trying to pass off someone else's content as their own. The benefits of doing that are at best going to be short term.  I have found some of my content reproduced elsewhere, and at first I was angry and annoyed since those places were infinitely more popular than my little corner, but then I realized that my objective of writing was to reach out to the maximum number of people with what Ihad to say, and they were not only helping me achieve that (yeah, without a credit, but hey, with the message unaltered), but they were also indirectly validating that my work was worth reproducing. Of course, this becomes a problem if your objective is to build a reputation or a brand or even a revenue stream through your blog. Uncopyright is here to stay, no matter how much we resist it. The concept of ownership is a manmade one. Just my 95 paise worth.

Sorry apologies on the that i very swiftly skipped that bit ... tried to delete but could not .. will keep that in mind

No issues. It happens a lot in the forum. Sometimes, I feel people hardly notice. So when I see, I do put in a word, that's all :)

@Leo - Yesterday I happened to be going over the Indiblogger rules. It says one can insert links to one's blog if it is relavent to the discussion. Here, I am not sure link to personal blog is not relavent or not in the context of piracy discussion. But usually if it is relavent it is allowed to post links. The Indipolice are the judges on relavence or irrelavence.

I agree, TF.. and I do look at that too.. :) but here, in this discussion, most are just links to the personal blogs.. which can be checked through the profile. Even to say that my blog has original content, that's OK. Link to prove it is as good as promoting, don't u feel? 

 

I'm not saying that Sangeeta or Ashwini etc are intentionally leaving links to promote, but the relevancy isn't there, to put the links in this case...

Subhorup - Your right there is very little you can do if your work is reproduced ... i am guessing i have not faced such a situation but then who can tell :(

Leo

I've seen it happen too.. Some give credits, link to the blog where it has been taken from.. etc. Some are not courteous to do that. It depends on the mentality of the person. Like Subhorup says, depends on the blogger. How we take it, anger or calmness... Each blogger prays we dont meet that situation.

Okay, i would say i never copied, or never wrote something from the other blog. All what i have written is original and all about what i think, feel and experience. I really don't get it when you are copying how can it be a blog. 

Blogging is about originality and that i what i totally follow. !!

Amrita - that's the most baffling part .. that's how even i think of blogging .. i started to write for the pure passion of writing and making good use of my brain that was rusting. Let's face it sometimes it not easy to write you original but that is stimulating bit that I am able to challenge myself to find words to make a post. 

Cheers

Sangeeta : That is where the challenge comes. When you have no topic left in the world, and suddenly you get a popping corn in your mind, and you say ' oh ya i can write about this' . And yes its is very very difficult to find word at times. I second that . Thats why, when you are original atleast you know how to start something or to blabber.Laughing

Many of us here have had gone thru plagirism on IndiBlogger. I think that was a lesson big enough.

Well, there are times when I come across some great articles which I want to share with fellow bloggers. On those instances, I post the writeup followed by the original link. If it's from a book or a newsletter, the publisher gets the deserved credit. 90% on the blog though, is original content.

 

Sangeeta, even I saw a blogger paste an article copied from TOI and did not respond when he was confronted about the same.

 

The web has so much good information that we want to share it. We do by posting links on FB & Twitter. The same can apply to blogs. Yes, credit to the original publisher is mandatory to maintain governance in the blogging world also.

Vishal that is the right way of doing it .. and there is harm in appreciating a great piece of work but you said it very correctly if it's done should be due credit ..

 

You won't believe i read some more of the reproduced work today .. I am glad many of us are on the same page !!

It's kinda weird you asked this in the first place. Do you really think someone would come up and say 'Hey I copy a lot and most of the stuff in my blog are not genuine' ? The authenticity of the posts in ones blog reflects how true he is to it. And like someone said above, it is the risk that we take when we all publish our blogs on net - that of being copied.

Ha ha your so right .. but the reason i asked this question was to see if i was the only one living in the la-la land .. I should have better framed my question .. :D
