Bloggers, wake up! For long the mainstream media has been plagiarising pictures from our blogs for long. And they seem to get away with it with impunity. Because they don't respond to emails. They don't publish letters sent to the editor about their reporters lifting images with impunity. How can they -- these losers can't stand up to own their mistakes; they don't have the balls to do that. Yes I said it, they lack the balls. They copy images, text, opinions, and they aren't man enough to acknowledge the source: let alone ask for permission or compensate monetarily. Twilight Fairy, Archana, Bobinson have pointed it out before. And now, Shrinidhi finds one of his pics on the Times of India.
The question is, how do we fight it? And the answer is right here: we have our own blogs. Remember, united we stand and divided we fall. So on October 2nd, let us all post something about this plagiarism. It should only be fitting that we all stand together and lodge our protest against injustice on the day the one man who taught us this was born.
On October 2, you need to post something about plagiarism by all the media. Write your reaction, stand by fellow bloggers, and tell everyone that they need to be vigilant. And for now, please pass on this message to other people via comments on their blogs. Post a comment on every blog you visit, and encourage them to write something on this day. Everyone together, same day -- lets do this! Pass this as a tag, and please post something on October 2. Everyone, we need to do this together!
