    The Ethics (or lack thereof) of Website Plagiarism

    Anyone else seen this (open 2 windows so you can compare both side-by-side)? Comments? A similar thing has happened to me.

    Thats sad.. It even sucks more that Bulent Ozgoren is my fellow Country man.

    He recently posted messages on 2 major forums about his website update.

    L Gebhardt - nice catch! I did think that his last paragraph was too seamless to be original.

    Now, I am not defending plagiarism, but it is possible that English is not his first language, and he wanted to make a good impression. However he obviously failed, given what you have found. I do know I would not want to buy his prints (they might not really be his), or take his workshops now.

    Good catch indeed. If he was one of my students, he would fail.

    Wow! That was out and out copying. I thought that sounded a bit familiar but could not place it. People are praising his website on the LF forum. hmmmm.

    Wow is right! And they both have a "copyright" at the bottom. What recourse does the original author (I assume the guy who has been up since 2001) have to assert his rights? How would you even start that process I wonder?

    I wonder if their photographic efforts are as original and creative as their websites.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.
