Jonathan Bailey knows first hand how plagiarists work on the web. And he also knows how to fight them. On the heels of our teleseminar with attorney Jay Hollander about how to protect your creative assets, we’ve found another resource to help hard working professionals.
His blog is called Plagiarism Today. Read his story about what happened to him and what he’s done about it. Besides being well informed about the action steps you need to take when this happens to you (note the use of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’), he’s even created forms and templates for tracking and reporting offenders.
While not a lawyer, he’s been having a 95% success rate helping others resolve Web plagiarism. Here’s his disclaimer: "I am not a lawyer. I am just a legally-minded Webmaster/Writer frustrated with the plague of plagiarism online and doing something about it."
We hope this doesn’t happen to you, but know there are things you can do when it does. Has it happened to you already?
