Previous Entry Quick update!! Nov. 4th, 2010 @ 11:17 am Next Entry
First -- I have heard absolutely zero from Cooks Source -- however, HELLO INTERNET!! NICE TO SEE YOU!! Welcome to my blog!!


@neilhimself retweeted this story: http://twitter.com/neilhimself !!! -- My nerd life is complete.

(tho it will be more complete is @wilw would comment too... :)

This is now on the front page of reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/WTF/comments/e147w/website_article_gets_copied_without_permission_by/ -- HELLO REDDITORS! Nice to see you!!!

And apparently the internet as a whole has decided to take up my case on the Facebook webpage of Cooks Source

Topsy.com has informed me that (as of 11:15AM EDT) that there's been 1,300+ trackbacks to my article.

John Scalzi has posted and tweeted: http://whatever.scalzi.com/

If it gets posted elsewhere, please feel free to repost it here.

And, first and foremost, I am utterly grateful and thankful for all the lovely and wonderful comments I have gotten so far. Internet -- you rule. Thank you so much.

Whath of the 'Net ~ Wrath of Khan?

1) I liked your article (and tried your recipe) when I saw it on Goode Cookery (SCA represent *throws lame attempt at "gang sign," fails, -2 charisma*)

2) I'm an aspiring author with 2 novels in the editing process and a slim chance of publication

3) I'm a decent human being with a conscience.

Clearly, this editor is not.

Go you! I hope someone is able to pick up your case because you deserve compensation, and while the wrath of the intertubes has uncovered even more litigious blunders(she stole from Food Network!!) and may shut her down, regardless, your work is your work and deserves compensation.

I'm sure that $130 is looking FANTASTIC right about now. Pity about hindsight.

Really nice article from Edrants.com. Mentions a whole onslaught of articles that have come to light after you went public.

Yay for the internet!

Apparently they also had the habit of copy/pasting recipes from people. Not the 1st time they did it. Here's a nice example of them copy/pasting a Paula Deen recipe:
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=162870240412203&%3Bset=o.104698228576#!/photo.php?fbid=162870240412203&%3Bset=o.104698228576&pid=365652&id=100000676834236

But then again, you should probably THANK them for publishing your work with the likes of Martha Stewart (so I've heard, haven't seen the links yet) and Paula Deen. HA!

I think that you should go after Cook Source, find some lawyer that would be willing to do pro-bono work. : )
