I have hesitated to bring this one up as I don’t really understand what has gone on here and if fraud has been carried out then I don’t really want to give whoever this was the oxygen of viewing stats. But. I am not happy.
I found this piece of blatant plagiarism/site cloning/theft.
Based on where the post stops, I am guessing that my site was cloned in February. I don’t know why or to what purpose but anyway it happened and I don’t really know what to do to get this site taken down. Girl with her Head in a Book has been my alter ego for about three and a half years (phew!) and this is something that I do for fun, but it also represents a significant amount of work and effort on my part which I don’t appreciate seeing duplicated.
I’m not saying I’m perfect – I’ve made mistakes myself about giving credit. About a year and a half ago, I discovered that the place I had got my signature image from had actually stolen it from Klork over at Deviant Art. I apologised, Klork is now credited, we all move on. This feels very different though and if anybody knows who “Wannapron Phongphiw” might be, or if they are reading this, I am looking into what action is available to me.
Girl with her Head in a Book is a solo operation – I am the only one putting in the time here, I pick the books, the lists, the poems, the everything. I don’t do that for somebody to waltz in and steal my work.
