I think you can finally stop worrying about Judith Griggs making accusations. Not only did she take down her website, but she told her local newspaper in an interview that November is the last issue of Cooks Source. She's done. The story is here: http://www.gazettenet.com/2010/11/17/cooks-source-calls-it-quits?SESS6f0fd580e4826fca3478dc794135dde4=gnews

Aaaaand... because I know you...

YOU should not feel ONE MOMENT of remorse about that.

YOU didn't do it to her. She did it to herself.

All she had to do was respond civilly, and appropriately, to any of your initial inquiries so conveniently outlined here, and she would have been able to continue on her merry way infringing on Disney and Martha and Paula, with them probably none the wiser.

For that matter, if she'd never stolen your recipe, she might still have been found out by one of the other scores of articles and photos she stole, and the result might well have been the same.

In any case, the larger story is that you put the fear of god into copyright infringers the world over. I absolutely LOVE that Suzanne McMinn got a big check for her stolen photo at least partly because of YOU. :-) Check it out here: http://chickensintheroad.com/living/open-letter-to-dave-belanger/

So don't go guilt-tripping yourself about this, ok?

Hugs!

The depressing thing is, if Griggs is in any way savvy she will sell her domain name - imagine the traffic it'll be getting.

I don't think we need to worry about her being savvy ;)

I've said it before elsewhere, and I'll say it here. General George Custer had more "situational awareness" than Judith Griggs.

Can't see the Gazette article. Seems they've made their site 'Subscription Only' and you now have to PAY for it.
