Plagiarism [Jan. 4th, 2008|09:50 am]
Preserving Thamiris' LJ and memory

There has been an incident of plagiarism of a story by Tham,

In Principio.

This person has also been plagiarizing other entries from Tham's journal. The incident was reported to this community by bofoddity. If you read the entry, it's clear that SV fen are already out in force to defend.

If anyone knows if there is a way to bar this individual from further access to Tham's LJ, please point us in the right direction. Is this grounds for contacting the Abuse Prevention Team? and if so, will they do anything?

Similar cases have been reported to LJ abuse team, and this is very worthy of a report. You have the IP - the least LJ can do is to delete that journal. A friend of mine was plagiarized last year (poems and whole journal entries) and that journal was deleted.

Also, you guys, if you went and ranted in that journal, you should always take screen caps, because plagiarists and other offenders are often swift with locking or deleting what they wrote (I learned this the hard way from moderating a poetry writing community). So think before you act if you want to get to the bottom of this.
