Plagiarism SUCKS!

August 2, 2017

WARNING: Life in Finland is being plagiarized by someone else.

Last week I got some pingbacks on my blog and I was curious, so I clicked and was horrified to find out that someone has been lifting my blog entries in English, translating them into (apparently poor) Finnish and calling them their own. They are also using MY photos.

There’s not much I can do it seems.

I want it to be known now, that I am the only writer of this blog and all my content is original, unless otherwise specified.

Plagiarism is WRONG.

        I saw one of the posts was lifted from TeleFinn and very badly translated. You should contact WordPress to have the blog and its contents completely removed. There’s no point in engaging with the thief in question. I suppose you could also contact the police to try to get them to tell that to WordPress.

        The problem here anonymous is that I am not the only one, so WordPress might do anything. But now that you have posted here, I have found another avenue to pursue. Will do that now.

    But you CAN do something – file a DMCA. This is a legal requirement for the host of the blog to remove your copyright. WP have an file for you to fill in in the report section on every site. Good luck!

      I am really uncomfortable with sharing my personal information with the offender. That is why I have not carried this forward.

        That I can understand, whole heartedly.

    WordPress were fantastic about removing some plagiarised content I found. Contact them with links to both your original content and the plagiarised page.
