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


[Current Mood |angryangry]

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?

I mentioned (as in ranted) about this to my husband, who suggested that the community write a letter to the internet service provider who is hosting this person, as it would result in an automatic takedown of his account. When I mentioned that it was a Serbian providerr, he said it still might be worth trying but the chance of success would be much less.

I wish I could suggest something entirely effective, but this is a bit out of my area of knowledge. I looked back at his journal, and everything in it except the userpics and perhaps the odd birthday notice appears to have been lifted from Tham's work. It makes me sick.

Since they also took personal entries from thamiris, maybe one could claim something like stalking or imposterism rather than or in addition to plagiarism?

I'm not sure stalking would work -- since she's not here to be stalked -- but imposterism is certainly a possibility. Especially as he also stole her bio.
