Workaholiks steal

with one comment

I write crap.

I post crap.

But experience has led me to believe that almost everything has a market.

So what would I do if someone “reproduced” something I wrote without linking to me? I’d be hurt and I’d post about it. I might not be able to do much. I might have the time and energy to follow it up, but I’d definetely want more people to be aware of this sort of thing.

Just read this on Kiruba’s blog. And I thought I’d help Suyog’s cause.

Workaholiks, an ad firm in Bangalore, India, used a picture from Suyog’s blog and are being a pain in the ass by refusing to recognize this fact.

Here is Suyog’s initial post about this. And here is his reply to a Workaholiks mail. It’s still not over.

And Google will take away.   […]
