You know who you are

Art by Fabian Perez

You know who you are.

Over the years I have been plagued by plagiarists.

People who steal my writing and pretend it is their own.

It is theft, it is illegal, and it is immoral.

And right now, I know that you are regularly coming here and copying. You are posting my words as if you wrote them. You are a liar and a fraud, and utterly without talent of your own.

So here is a warning. I will soon be devoting serious time (and I mean serious time) every week to finding you. I am buying software which will track every stolen piece down. I also have someone who will help me. It does not matter where on the web your site is, we will find you.

And when I do, I will report you to Facebook, or Instagram, or WordPress, whichever host you use. Because you are breaking international copyright law (in all countries), and also the host’s rules. Your site will be closed down.

But before I do that, because when it comes to protecting my work I am a vicious, vindictive, vengeful bastard, I will make sure that you are truly humiliated first. I will ensure that all your followers who have been conned by you into thinking you have half a creative brain will know what a sad little fake you are.

And if your site is successful, or even more, if you have published anywhere on the web, I will take legal action. Believe me I have the money, the balls, the contacts, and the bloody-mindedness to do it. In short, I will make you feel so small that you will crawl away and wish that you had never heard of me.

So, if I were you I would delete what you have already stolen, and stop taking any more. Right now.

This is your only warning.

I WILL be coming to get you

And I will be brutal in completely fucking destroying you.

Lisa the thief

plagiarism_header

It depresses me that I have to do this on my birthday.

I despise plagiarists – those who steal the words of others and use them to add value to themselves. A true writer will always credit his or her sources – and certainly not pretend that the words are their own. It is shallow and dishonest and the mark of someone without morals or scruples. Or talent.

Lisa* is such a plagiarist. She steals my words and, because what I write is nothing so special, she may well be stealing your words, or the words of those you admire.

I would appreciate whatever help you can give in exposing her and having her blog removed.

Thank you.

Romantic Dominant

PS and Lisa, you probably won’t want to steal this one.

POSTSCRIPT : Lisa appears to have closed her blog – or taken it private if that is possible on Tumblr. In some ways I am pleased, in some ways saddened. We all have something to say and I am sure that she had a message to impart. It is a pity that she chose to do it with the uncredited words of others. Thank you to all those who gave their support.

* There was a link here, but now she has gone it connects to a porn site, so I have deleted it. There might be an irony there, but I can’t see it
