Misunderstanding…

…or plagiarism?

 

If you discovered that someone had taken a blog post you worked very hard on – copied most of it and posted it a month later as their own post – what would you do?

Would your first thoughts be that of plagiarism of your copyrighted work… or perhaps just a misunderstanding?

First I got very upset, but thankfully I received several calls/texts from author friends… and eventually spoke to the author, who was so gracious I couldn’t stay angry.

In the proverbial nutshell, another blogger copied my work, but didn’t give me credit or mention my blog when she submitted her post.

It seems to be a gross misunderstanding. Forgiven and hopefully soon forgotten.

The only reason I’m mentioning it now is in hope that no one else gets involved in such a misunderstanding. It’s hurtful and can cause lots of harm.

Whether you are a published (or unpublished) author, writer, reviewer, or blogger, please be careful to give proper credit to the source if you use somebody else’s work (see below).
