March 5th - Bloggers protest against plagiarism

In solidarity to my fellow bloggers and friends I am joining in the protest against Yahoo-India’s defiant stand on copyright violation issues. Read the full story here. Yahoo India’s Malayalam Portal blames it all on their subcontractor/content provider Webdunia, instead of making an apology to the blogger whose weblog content was taken and published without crediting the source. It is a shame that Yahoo-India failed to practice the proper etiquette of web publishing. If they are looking for solutions, start with a proper apology, try crediting the source for the content, and let Webdunia take some time off to refresh (or learn) their ABCs on copyright protection laws.
