Blog plagiarism is not new. But, it is new to me!
Well, a Mr. Nikhil Mahajan has a blog at – http://dudemahajan.blogspot.com/ If you look carefully at the Archives in the right column (for example, click on Movies, or Computers) at his blog, you can find entire posts copied from my own blog!!!!!!
As it turns out, several of his posts are copied from several blogs without giving any credit to any original author. This guy has not even bothered to change the hyperlinks in several cases; they point to original blogs 😦
In any case, I think that copying an entire set of posts, and providing a link to the original article (mistakenly, I guess) still classifies as plagiarism. In this age of Internet, the person can just provide an external link, or quote a small part, with due credit!
[Edit added after Rashmi’s comments]
Before writing my post, I had already asked him (by commenting on this blog) why he copies other people’s posts. Interestingly, his comments are moderated 🙂
Now, I have also notified another blogger, Sankar, whose posts on cricket have been blatantly lifted by Nikhil!
An additional note is that Mr. Nikhil’s blog has adsense ads! So, Mr. Nikhil, if you come to this blog again, I hope you realise what you should be doing about almost the entire blog!
