This happens far too often and the writer isn't even credited!

My spouse is a teacher and busts students all the time for copying others' work. How is this any different? Copying others' work is simply lazy as well as unethical. The fact that someone had the NERVE to put your name on this at least gives you the extra proof you need. Of course, it also proves they don't understand your rights.

Your writing and your words are your own. Period. Having noted that, I think we all know of cases where someone passes off a recipe or article as "their own" by simply changing an ingredient or rewording the original piece. I've written for the internet for a long time and am constantly having to notify sites that my content has been lifted, word for word. Sometimes my byline is included but with no link back to the original article. Thanks but no thanks!
