Since I have been contacted by Yehey people, the post that was previously here goes bye-bye. However, I would still like to air out my situation here, as content theft is something that no blogger would like to experience.
In their e-mail and comment (below), the Yehey staff apologized for the offending post, citing technical difficulties or human error as the cause for the lack of acknowledgment from this article, [update: they’ve taken it down as stated here] which is an edited version of my review of Pedicab’s Shinji Ilabas Mo Na Ang Helicopter. I saw the published Yehey article yesterday through RSS feed, and noticed the similarity to my review. At this point, I had not been contacted by Yehey in any way, and the lack of acknowledgment in their site could be considered as plagiarism. Therefore, I aired my sentiments in the previous version of this post.
Yehey has taken notice of the mishap and have made an effort to contact me about it. Therefore, I harbor no ill will to their site, though I have encouraged their staff to be more stringent in editing their site in order to avoid any similar mishaps.
A comment was left by Yehey below to apologize for the incident, which is also the e-mail sent to me,and pending their approval, I would also like to reprint my reply to them. Basically, I would hope that their site would contact anybody BEFORE reprinting and/or modifying content. Either way, Yehey has been very professional in making amends for this mishap and should be lauded for that.
However, let this be something for us to remember. Plagiarism is bad, whether you’re publishing for a website or just submitting a report for school.
