Dealing with Plagiarism Issues
» Feb 11, 12:59 PM
It’s funny if you think about it. I’ve been working on The Web Developer’s Handbook for a year now, gathering links to interesting articles on CSS techniques, typography, web design etc. A lot of time was spent on categorizing them, selecting them and presenting them. According to Populicio.us, alvit.de/handbook has become one of the most bookmarked web pages since the beginning of social bookmarking (No, I can’t compete with Slashdot, really). Every day I receive dozens of e-mails from web developers who support me and my project, suggest links and ideas for the handbook, creative web-developers inform me about the techniques they developed; besides I really appreciate concrete criticism coming from the visitors of the page.
And then this page occurs, offering “full index of every (web)design-related links”, just copying my work without giving credit to the author of the project.
I’ve already written an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, however, nobody has responded and the page exists as if it always were there.
Do you have any idea what I could do in this situation? Have you ever been ripped? What would you do?
PS: Thanks to everybody letting me know about the page.
