Coming from otf_wank on JF, to give you my sympathies.

Fortunately, with the way this is blowing up at an exponential rate, it looks like there will definitely be justice in the near future... although I doubt that Columbia will get $130 out of it because I have a feeling Ms. Griggs is going to end up in bankruptcy court very soon. Some of the sleeping giants she's also been taking content from are undoubtedly about to wake up and give her the business. You might be able to get in on that if it becomes class-action, although several of those legal departments are so powerful they'll probably just smack her down on their own.

You'll probably never see a genuine printed apology from them because I have a suspicion they've printed their last issue. But hopefully there's some comfort in the fact that this has driven a lot of new readership your way, and everyone who's coming to check you and your work out wishes you well and is on your side. I'm bookmarking Gode Cookery, myself, and will be checking out more of your writing in the future.

It also really warms my heart to see how massive the group decrying copyright violation and plagiarism (in some of the other articles' cases) is. I'm very sorry this happened to you, but I'm very happy that the whole Internet is standing up to say that this is never, ever okay.

Best of luck to you in everything you do. You've more than earned it.

Thank you for bringing this issue front and center.

As "master simon" says, "It also really warms my heart to see how massive the group decrying copyright violation and plagiarism (in some of the other articles' cases) is. I'm very sorry this happened to you, but I'm very happy that the whole Internet is standing up to say that this is never, ever okay."

Amen to that!
