There's good in the world, right?

So, Ed Champion, who was the very first person to interview me over the whole Cooks Source "thing" was himself plagiarized, per his blog post:


First, for the love of the Spaghetti Monster, people!! This is the 21st Century! If you plagiarize someone (or ahem ...copyright infringe), you will be found out, eventually! Quit doing it!!!

Second, really, plagiarizing someone who is an investigative journalist? Probably a bad idea.

Ed -- I hope you get resolution. For the record, all he is asking for is:

(a) a public apology, both prominently in print and online, for taking my quotes without asking or attributing;

(b) the issuance of a correction, both prominently in print and online, indicating that the Sunday Times and Jason Allardyce lifted quotes from my radio program, along with a URL directed to my site,

(c) a donation of £500 (as compensation for using my quotes and others without permission or attribution) to Reporters Without Borders.

Sounds vaguely familiar. :)

Good luck, Ed!!!!

Whoa. I presume that Allardyce won't try to explain that the sources he stole from were public domain... one wonders, though, whether he will say anything at all.

Oh, my. I do believe the Internet is about to spank someone else.

And apparently, this Allardyce guy is still working? Damn, here in the US, he would probably been fired at the first hint of plagiarism.
