Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

Lifting of blogger's story triggers online furor

A magazine accused of publishing a blogger's story without permission has seen a dramatic rise in the number of its Facebook friends, although they're not all that friendly.

The tale of writer Monica Gaudio hit the Web on Wednesday after she reported that her story, "A Tale of Two Tarts," was apparently lifted and published by the print magazine Cooks Source with her byline, but without her knowledge or any compensation. After tracking down the editor at the magazine, Gaudio asked for an apology on Facebook and in the magazine, as well as a $130 donation to the Columbia School of Journalism.

Instead, she said she received a rather unexpected response from the editor, Judith Griggs, quoted in-part below:

From other reports, apparently they have been doing this for years.

Yep, and not just taking from bloggers either but established news sources like NPR as well.

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

John Scalzi's got commentary, too, which is amusing and talks about some of the other pieces around the issue (like why this got going so fast..)

Monica really should file a copyright suit against the magazine. At up to $150,000 a violation, that should get some attention.

I had a similar thing happen with one of my articles about 10 years ago.

Well, apparently this site also lifted stuff from Disney, Martha Stewart and some celebrity chefs. I suspect if Monica doesn't do it, someone else will. This was an incredibly stupid thing to do...actually, it wasn't so much the lifting of the stuff as this editor's attitude. Gods above. What an idiot.

Apparently arrogance and stupidity really do go well together.  People never cease to amaze me... and usually not in a good way.

/shakes head

Honestly, I have no idea what to say about this. I mean, other than "Stupid, stupid, stupid". Cheesy Since I began to get serious about writing, which is only a couple of years, I've heard every side of the debate (and then some) about writing and public domain on the internet, and it's not so nearly as cut and dried as it seems (especially when dealing with publishing rights).

But this isn't even... that complex. It's just someone stealing another's words, plain and simple. I don't even think its a matter of someone not understanding online copyright laws, either. (I mean, how stupid are you to lift stuff from DISNEY?)

Just... God. /face-palm

ARGH. I'm infuriated and I'm not even involved in the slightest nor have I ever heard of the magazine. People are so astonishing sometimes.
