Tinker Posted September 12, 2009 Share Posted September 12, 2009 Well I guess it was bound to happen but last night while I was searching the internet for more information on verse forms I followed a link to a column posted at All Poetry.com and was surprised to find 5 of my verse form articles copied and pasted including the example poems I had written for the forms. It was posted by a member there who I do not know and who never asked permission to use my work. There is no acknowledgement of where it was found nor any indication that the poster was not the author. I have left a message expressing my displeasure of someone using my work as theirs and have complained to the moderators at All Poetry. I have received no response as yet. I haven't put up any copyright tags on my articles but simply by posting here should give me ownership of my research and writing. It was not copied from here, it was copied from the articles when they were posted at the Poetry Connection a few years ago before we moved to Poetry Magnum Opus. Anyway, it is just a reminder we are all vulnerable. I actually I have always been of the mindset that when I posted my research it was posted to be used. Used to learn from, to be inspired by, to suggest new ways of looking at the craft. I was surprised at my reaction to finding my work under someone elses name. I was pissed! ~~Tinker Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
