Good! I wish every aspiring blogger new to Bubblews could read your post before they start writing anything!

&bettyboop lol Im still here too .... this post was made waaay back in February and some of my opinions have changed a bit.

That is what I wonder too. How can they post too many recipes? Are those really written by them? So yeah, if not all, most of it are plagiarism.

This is true. I think over time I have submitted 2 recipes, but realized there is not much you can post with them.

One of my earliest posts on here was copied and pasted as someone else's bubble about 2 seconds after I posted it. All they did was change the title a little. I did report that guy...I just couldn't believe it!

I agree with you 100 Percent. I feel the writing should come from the person and not how to make something that all you have to do is Copy @Paste.

Hmm, I was just asking about the recipe thing! It's on the post that I commented on before this one! So do I need to delete the recipes? I think I have 2 or 3.

What an interesting picture...I have been staring at it for minutes now.

As for plagiarism, I haven't come across much. I do my best to credit and even cite my own articles if they are published elsewhere. I hope I'm in line.

Another good post. Plagiarism is stealing, period.

It is our duty to keep Bubblews clean of plagiarism, so that we can all earn from it.

When you get right down to it - there is nothing original - everything has been done/written already.

I am so glad to see so many are reading old posts. Please keep in mind that different times may mean very different concerns. this post was written in February.HOpefully the swarm of plagiarism is over now that it is June.

Regarding recipe copyright: the ingredient list is not under copyright, what is under copyright is the method. You have to write your own method or steps.

Thanks I agree should be original. However there is not reason why you cannot quote something as long as you say so. also you cannot copyright a recipe list of ingredients. As long as the wording of the creation of that recipe is personal then that can be done.

I want to add, that it would be a lot more interesting if someone posts a recipe and then put in a review - or at least told why they like it or how they changed it. Otherwise, I totally agree!

If anyone ever sees me post something I did not write I hope they will call me out. This site has so much potential if people jusr write their own stuff, it really isn't that difficult.

So many of us agree. the interesting thing is that plagiarism is so obvious! Yeah, it makes me angry, too. that kind of thing hurts those of us you write decent content and are honest.
sorry to tell you, but those plagiarists don't read other people's posts. They just spam comments. but didn't it feel great to say it as nicely as you did?
since you posted this, many people seem to have gotten kicked off.

okay so now I will feel extra guilty as I devour that Diet Soda Chocolate Microwave cake I just learned about in someone's Bubble.. may not be new, but it was NEW TO ME! So I'm happy for it. lol.. yum.. caaaaake...

Thanks for being so honest. You're observation is perfectly right and this could serve as a warning for many bloggers and even writers. Thanks for this post.

Ingredients to a recipe are not copyrighted. The instructions as written are... Regarding photos. If anyone needs copyright photos, there are many on the web. Morguefile is the best one because you do not have to do any attribution. They are photos that were basically sent there to die when they started...it has changed some and they have contests, etc. They do offer some paid photos...but they have an awesome selection of totally copyright free photos...

Great post..yeah a lot of people did that..and until now still a few person did that..yet i believe that if you only seek money with the negative way, that wont be long.. At least we show aour our quality

Ideas are not copyrightable, so a person cannot copyright a recipe, as in, a collection of ingredients and the basic directions to make something. However, you can copyright the verbiage for a recipe. I haven't had the opportunity to check out recipes, but if they're posting a recipe, adding a family anecdote about how they like the recipe or something, and are not copying the recipe word for word from some place, then technically, they're in the right to do so.

If people are stealing blogs, then I would agree, that that is wrong (unless they are stealing from themselves). There are a lot of people with content up all over the web (I happen to be one of them). I personally don't think that I will repost my stuff up here (unless they were deleted from the other site first).

Just playing Devil's advocate. In general, I would agree... violating copyright is theft and is wrong.

Ha, you see. We join here to make money, and every one try his best to write something. Maybe you don't like it. Why not let it be?

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I so agree with what you are saying especially about the recipes, but those are some of us out there posting them that come from us, they may be similar ones out especially with country cooking

that's how it is dear :) I too got an immediate dislike on a post in which i asked the members not to spam!! hehe :)
but hey!! i think u've not noticed, we are currently NOT being paid for dislikes!! check carefully

Flag this comment as inappropriate

LMAO Thx for the DISLIKE &nason , I still get paid for it lol I'm wondering why someone would dislike this post asking for everyone to keep the rules and write their own material? Either they don't understand what is written here or they themselves are copying others writings and don't like being called out !

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Yeah, the photo is cool. And definitely original. I also kind of agree with the rant, but usually you don't really need to read the recipes if you don't want to.

I am enjoying here at Bubblews I've been learning lots

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Plagiarism would not be paid here so nothing to worry on that as plagiarists would soon learn their lessons. :)
