The original and the imposter

Quote by Kassidy

Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery… But it’s a right arse ache.

It is always nice to see fans that loves our hard work. But when it comes to steal our content and use it for own benefit is way over the edge. We have come to knowledge that our site’s content has been ripped by someone, possible a group of people, and used it on the their own site. This site is called ManaNetwork, a poorly done website by a bunch of newbies who neither can’t design and maintain their content.

Right now their are selling their network on a site called SitePoint. Along the sale are ten domain names included, one domain for each game in the series. I am not advertising this auction, since they are selling stolen content, and that’s what makes me angry. They even got the guts to advertise their auction on our Shoutbox, not only that, the seller sent a mail to me about this auction. What a stupid thing to do, because I am going to stop this auction and do everything until he stop this auction and remove all content that he ripped. If possible also taking the whole network down, but that’s a little too harsh.

    Darn right Kassidy, I agree with you. Ripping content from other sites is so darn annoying. Someone works hard to make stuff then some really lame or lazy guy steals it.
    It was Lee that advertised on our shoutbox, I think. Bah, this sickens me! Good luck stopping these guys!

    Yeah, I’m just quoted as saying the bit about plagiarism being flattery, although that’s adapted from a famous quote by… er, I have no idea… “Imitation is the highest form of flattery.” It’s so over-used that I can’t find who originally said it.

    Oh yeah now I see, sorry. Back in the fourms I also saw a site that copied from the seikens. Or more rather I posted the link and Sheexy found out.

    The current highest bidder said this:

    I don’t feel that’s a Rip, it’s from a game so your riped this off too, and anyways if it really is true it looks better he did it better than you

    I dont know how and why he thinks the ripper has done a better way.
