Unacceptable

(Link)
Just saw this come across my Facebook news feed. I think the worst part is the editor's response. It is just plain disgusting.

You can take this to small claims court. If you really want to make them look bad, take them to Judge Judy. I've seen her mediate cases where one party has used the others intellectual property without knowledge/permission. A LOT of people watch Judge Judy...a LOT.

I don't think it needs to be taken to small claims court. Paula Dean was sent the photo from the same issue with an article plagiarized from her. It's been turned over to her lawyers. Following up on an article in the Washington post there's also "NPR blog, Martha Stewart, WeightWatchers.com, and WebMD, among others."

In other words illadore (I'll use the LJ name here although she's rather been outed by now) started a firestorm and people with very, very good lawyers are stepping in.

illadore, thank you so much for getting this going.
