My point on 3.8 answerproof question

Continue from previous post:
Pinksterz's comment impressed me the most.
But out of so many questions, I'm only concerned with Q3.
And I love how usws said that everyone's a copycat someway or another
Anyway, what i'm about to write here is a combination of Q3, Q2 and Q1 (in that order)
My point is: [q3]Plagiarism exist everywhere. Depending on how you look at it, the stupid brave ones does it more than 100% where the creative ones does it less than 0.001%. Often the world will almost always think of ways to kill the person who plagiarists more than 10%.
[q2]Be yourself.. If you are a copycat, continue to be yourself. [q1]Besides, if a copycat doesn't think that they are plagiarizing someone's work, they aren't because that is what they think.

One more thing, that infamous line "Isn't there an unspoken rule out there that says that stealing posts from all over the place ISN'T considered blogging???" which i stole from tinkitalks....
None of the 3 statements are considered as plagiarism as I gave credit to the original writer.

That is why I love religious blogger (only if they practice what they do best). Before stating a point, they will always mention the source. (eg: Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind....)

At the pace technology is going, I wonder if blogging will be termed as the NEW religion a few hundred years down the road.

chingy said...

Em, once in a while it's okay, I like reading light hearted stuff! Yay! XD

Choo Hwei Ming said...

actually.. to be considered plagiarism, you'll need a more then 10% of exact same material and idea..

so, neh, you cant be convicted that easily..

pamsong said...

Wah, kena again. Haha. The lenglui news is getting stale, 3POINT8. Dun overuse lahhh. Later nobody think I lenglui already then I become yesterday's news. -_-

jam said...

Ya, we plagiarized once in a while. Even if you do not take other sentences, you also steal their ideas to write your own post. Unavoidable! We just cannot be as creative.

x said...

one way or another every does it becuz, the world is coming to an end...everything has already been said, done, resaid, redone, and re-resiad and re-redone....

so it is nothing new XD

usws said...

BYE!

[Robin]
Thanks! I'm glad that you like this post.

[chingy]
Oh ok ok.. more light hearted stuff coming up. Stay tuned!

[Choo Hwei Ming]
more than 10%? Alrite, I'll try to make sure I won't exceed 9.9% Thanks for the tip

[pamsong]
Others can change their mind like how beauty fades. But in my mind, you will always be considered as one. You should know that since you are none other than pamsong herself. (chim leh?)

3POINT8 said...

[jam]
That is what i was thinking too! To tell the truth, I got all my stuff from the net. All i need to do is just to twist it abit. (most of the time, i credit the original author)

[]
Hmm...makes sense. I guess the trick lies in how you present the data. Hmmm.... I got a new idea now, thanks to you, x!

[usws]
Yup, Free Publicity! Ain't I generous?

Kamigoroshi said...

The thing about plagiarism is that you take credit for someone else's work WITHOUT their consent. It doesn't matter if you credit them, if you're going to copy whatever they said without them allowing to do so, that's a copywrite violation in itself.

So no, being inspired to write about something from someone else's post in your own words isn't plagiarism. It's just the spread of ideas. Now that everyone has done.

Because never in my 5 years of blogging have I copied from anyone else. People have copied from me though and as my copywrite laws have said, I will deal with them as brutally as legally possible.

cibol said...

well, nobody ever copied mine before .. so, maybe it's really crap then .. :)

ceblogger said...

"there's nothing new under the sun". that statement is found somewhere in the Bible.

sometimes, a phrase or two in what we write could also be found in someone else's work, and is that.001% plagiarism?

pamsong said...

Haha. Super kaulat chim. Read also leg shake hand sweat. =p

pinksterz said...

haaha wtf flirting in action between kif and pamsong!

3POINT8 said...

[kamigoroshi]
So, are you saying that the spread of ideas are not acts of plagiarism? (thats good to hear)
Anyway, i was curious to what ways are there to deal with blogger copycat legally? Can you share something here pls?

[cibol]
I think you subconsciously installed a plagiarize-proof statement in all your post. Perhaps that is why no one is able to steal it....yet

[ceblogger]
Well, as kamigoroshi said, i prefer to view myself as spreading information that is available in the net

[pamsong]
Leg shake? O.O
When a woman shakes her leg, it could only mean one thing. I wonder if its true...

[pinksterz]
Yup. Pinky, can give me some flirting tips??
I'm new in this...

pamsong said...

ATTN: Pinksterz
– Haha. If that's 3POINT8's idea of flirting, I think no hope left lah... Or maybe it's just the Aussie style of doing things. =p


ATTN: 3.8
– Really now? I don't think I've ever heard of it. (Serious. Never hear before leh.) Pray tell...

3POINT8 said...

[pamsong]
Oh? haha...i was simply talking crap hoping that it relates to you..
:P

pamsong said...

Haih. Waste my time.
