If for instance, and this is only a suggestion, IF could seek some sort of LEGAL aid which states that anybody copying from India-Forums will be subject to fine... then this could be curbed.
 
Only a suggestion, lets see how it goes. :)


The actual definition of Copyright states that any intellectual property, within some standards of originality, is protected under the copyright laws. So plagiarism might be a wrong term for what the members are doing, it might be more accurate to say that it's a copyright infringement. A valid copyright needs to be stated though, like most of us do on blogs.

But copyright laws can only work for stuff which is copyrighted. Work posted on IF is not copyrighted, and thus plagiarism.
 
But then cabbage bolo ya bandh-gobi, baat toh vahi hui. Thing is its wrong, and people don't realise what idiots they are

LOL! Agreed on the idiots bits.

But yeah, that is what I was saying in the last line, maybe IF could provide some way for us to copyright out work? I mean, even on blogs, we post a copyright notice, and get it registered with some website, right? Maybe IF could allow us to do that same?

This is such a stupid situation, some lazy asses can't write and decide to copy, and we are left to find a defend our right to protect something we rightfully own. Messed up! -.-

Thus, life.
 
@Jot - is there ANYWAY we can land up at Vijay's house and DEMAND our right? LOL Fer serious. I already made a topic about the nocopy code for every page... some moderators even replied and promised to convey the message to Vijay. But then nothing happened.

Butting in as the IP chick here - Intellectual Property whether registered or not, unlike patents tend to automatically fall withing the scope of copyright. 
Plagiarism for those who seem to get confused is touting something that isn't yours under your own banner and saying - Heeeyyy I may be too retarded to come up with my own work - but I can copy other peoples work and pretend to the world at large that it's mine! 

Comprende?

I have made a post on "How to become more Creative?" for anti-Plagiarism. 

http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=3464460&PID=77369836&#77369836

I was wondering if it could be stickied. I thought it might help new writers to become more creative rather than Plagiarise. 

Love, 

Mishty
