Copyright Infringement and Me

Want us to bombard their Facebook page with complaints and comments?
You have a right to free speech in this country, still. ;)
Can I just say that I HATE the fact I had to "like" their FB page to post to it?
I don't have to "like" them to report the page (bottom of the left column). Although the choices that it gives are limited, I clicked the "Spam or scam" option.

I think "Spam or scam" is more technically correct, but as Chris Rock says, "I understand." ;)
Yeah i feel the same - seems so wrong...
Good news, the stories running around twitter, just saw Neil Gaiman send out a retweet about it - so you seem to have a lot of people on your side illadore.
Yes, we still have free speech in this country, however free speech doesn't cover copyrighted work. How would you feel if you wrote a book and then someone came along and republished it without your permission and then made money off of it. Copyrighted material is not covered under free speech.

Re: Free Speech
That comment was by illadore...I think she meant YOU have free speech, should you want to visit their FB page and tell them they suck. Hence the winky emoticon.

Re: Free Speech
Indeed, making money off of it is the critical issue, the major point of all copyright law.

As a group people could easily hi-jack there facebook page with complaints.

Once it hit Gizmodo, it was a done deal.
I really can't get over the chutzpah of this woman. You get caught plagiarizing, you quietly apologize and walk away with your tail between your legs. You certainly don't come out guns-a-blazin'.
Better still would be to mirror their web site at a bunch of typo domains, with ads.

I think people are already doing that.
Their website is down so I guess they've been eloquently bombed out by tiny and useless internet-users. That don't only handle writing, they know technology, too! We should all cease immediately and go back to being stupid.

Facebook! Already passed on my views :)
Thought you might like to know that the level of bastardy you've experienced has been commented on in one of (if not) the preeminent newspaper publications in Australia:

Copying an article under copyright is theft. If this the same Cook's Magazine that I sent last year as a subscription for my grandson's birthday
and the annual compilation for his Christmas present, I shall not repeat my error and I shall be certain to tell him that Cooks's Magazine is a magazine run by thieves. Inasmuch as he will be attending a large accredited university in culinary arts next year, he will be able to spread the truth among his fellow chefs to be. Your theft will cost you far more than the pittance that was requested. I am going to suggest to the author of tghe stolen article that she obtain youre subscription list from WorldCat and send message about your theft to all libraries that subscribe to your magazine. Plagiarism is viewed ver dimly by accredited colleges and universities. You have a home somewhere, the BBB in your home town needs to know what thieves you are.

DON'T confuse Cook's Illustrated (formerly known as Cook's Magazine), which I assume is what you're referring to above, with this thing. CI is a very good publication that does all their own testing and recipes. "Cook's Source" is a giveaway mag that appears to consist entirely of articles and recipes from other sources and it wouldn't surprise me if most if not all of them are plagiarized without permission.
You should see what folks have had to say over there. It's very "yo mama." A little juvenile but funny as hell.
Illadore, just wanted to drop you another word of support from the West. Give 'em hell.
Thank you!! :)
Tell the West Kingdom I said hello!!
