"But honestly Monica, the web is considered "public domain" and you should be happy we just didn't "lift" your whole article and put someone else's name on it! It happens a lot, clearly more than you are aware of, especially on college campuses, and the workplace."

Yes, it is called plagiarism, which is a form of theft, for which there are laws prohibiting said conduct. Just like people getting murdered happens with stunning regularity, even at workplaces.

For whatever it is worth, it looks like an official of the magazine in question has just declared all past, present and future internet content of said magazine to be "public domain" above and beyond what is considered fair use.

It looks as if ALL her content is stolen... so no, it's not public domain at all.
