I’m not certain this is the case, but it seems that one blog has copied a post verbatim, first dated March 6, 2011 here by a wardrobe stylist, and subsequently appearing here on March 9, 2011. Are these people friends? Either way, I was a bit shocked to discover this on a high-profile topic in the fashion sphere. It’s one thing to reblog something and provide credit to the source, and another to lift everything word for word, making it seem as if it’s a Web site’s original content.
The text that followed the image (also used) seemed unchanged. If the intent was not plagiarism, then there should be some clarification issued, whis is nowhere to be found on the secondary site. As a blogger, I wouldn’t want to spend hours working on my nice graphics, uploading it, writing my topic, only to have someone use it without crediting me for the hard work.
What do you think?
