I am not sure if it ever happens with any members/mylotters- in the past or present situation. I wonder what did/would you feel reading a topic copied from your article. Of course the first thing you will do is to report that post- or will you message that member if he or she is in your friends lists? I am a member here for 4 years already but I haven't seen my old topics, or my articles from other sites copied and posted here in Mylot. Having a thought.... Have a great weekend again dear mylotters...(whew- it's weekend again) jaiho® forever 11-23-2012 12:50AM Friday PT

For me it would be disappointing that somebody copied contents of what i shared here in this discussion site. however, it that person had copied some of my works and put acknowledgement as me as their source then it would be fine, but if they just simply copied and pasted my work without giving me any credit, then that would mean sanctions to them.

hello heaytheblogger, I agree with you- that would be an honor if they acknowledges your article or piece (but not here in mylot because posting a link or promoting other content/articles/links is never allowed.) If they do it on other sites- like writing sites that allowed links then- they (any mylotter) can use our topic/discussion here in mylot provided they acknowledges you as the original writer. Anyway, thanks for your participation and have a great day

and that's how it should be, heay, wherever it came from (personal blog, writing sites, yahoo, wikipedia, webmd, etc). the source should always be mentioned. it shows you're honest and respect other people's work.

It also helps you that no one would sue you for taking over their intellectual property and plagiarism :D

Guess my discussions or comments are not that great because I don't think any one has ever copied anything I've written! Guess I'm one of a kind. I've seen discussions started that are similar to mine, but worded differently.

Same here STOUTjodee. It's really better to write simple yet straight to the point discussion so as others will not try to copy and paste it somewhere

hello blogandme, That's what we really do right, to write attractive articles for our readers. I can see that you are a newbie here so I want to greet you "welcome to Mylot" Be active and enjoy mylot. In any case you ever encountered like what I have wrote- report it to Admin for deletion. Thanks for the fast response and have a great day

I never had an experience like that before. Been here almost three years, but if I can see some of my topics being copied by other mylotters then it would be fine for me. They might have something in their mind and it would really flatter me if they will rewrite it with a twist.

hello ellyse, I can say that there are topics that almost the same when it comes to thoughts/ideas but written differently- not actually reworded but the subject is there. Sometimes there are topics that are related to other topics/discussion (intentionally or unknowingly) and it happens. Thanks for your comment and have a great day

Not that I know of. I am not sure as well. But as what STOUTjodee has said, maybe our discussion or posts are not so good for others to notice it . Well, it's their conscience that will be eating them, that's if they have one, and not mine if they are doing this. I just hope they will be able to justify their posts if they ever try to copy and paste it. As for my feeling if this ever happens, I will really be angry and will report that someone if I ever found one stealing my ideas.

hello gaiza, Yah, maybe our post is not interesting one -hahaha. I haven't seen a member who posted a copied content from old topics, but I saw members who copied content/articles/blogs from the net and posted here in mylot as a topic. Those who did such activities are now deleted or their account/s are banned for doing so. Thanks for your comment and have a great day.

No, I cna't say that I see my article posted by other mulotters. But, I saw users who post topic with same idea as mine. I'm sure that is a simple coincidence so I'm not worry about this.

hello daniel, It's understandable with newbies to post same idea from others, thu the content is not the same. Even with veterans, there are certain topics modified from their old posts. Thanks for the comment and have a great day

That's one of the reasons why am no longer making good quality topics the way i did before. it's for that specific reason that our topics would be copied by some one and mylot won't be answerable for topics being copied to other site, you can only report that plagiarist article to the admin of that other site. but that depends if the admin on the other site would believe you.

I have seen both my own posts and those of others copied and pasted on here. I report and I do not message the user. I did meesage some of those whose posts were copied and I told them what was happening. Anyone who is incapable of typing their own words here and relies on copying those of others is not worth the air that they breathe

hi jai, Look like noone ever reads my responses to copy paste. However, now i got to know that we cas request the loter not to do if he/she is in the friends list. I have seen many posts with a similar heading or the same subject and both looks like people have copied the post/ or rather i should say Mylot has many creative writers who can use your heading and topic and write their own/ start their own discussion.

Those "who copy their responses and pasted on every boxes" are doing 'self plagiarism', right? They might think it's ok since it is their own words they are copying and pasting; but it is certainly still not a right thing to do and, in my own opinion, definitely count as 'plagiarism'...

Jai sis, so far i only encountered a few discussions which seems familiar with discussions that my friend started a few years ago. I ever reported a few similar discussions but not sure whether they are being deleted or not. It is because i seldom visited Mylot recently. So, i can't remember which discussions are similar to those old discussions.

dear sis I know it's hard to recognize whether the post is a copied content or not- unless it's our very own topic. I haven't found any of my old topics being posted here, but I am sure that this happened to other mylotters -just like what other mylotters wrote on their responses. Glad to see you come again my dear and have a great day always

I cannot say if anyone has copied any of my discussions. If they did they might have posted them somewhere else on the internet. I don't start that many discussions and when I do I try to make them interesting. I also work with other sites and sometimes I re-write something I have written here and post it somewhere else. But it is my stuff. I bet some people here and on other sites do copy and paste.

hello intertia, Sometimes I check the net to see if someone posted or copied my articles. But I am sure writing sites has their ways of determining whether the posted piece is copied or not. I have it proven with Experts- the site block accounts of members who disobey the rules.(posting copied content- spinning content) Thanks and have a great day

Copied as in a copy paste job? No I have never seen that happen in my five odd years here. But yes ideas on the same topic with same views have been created. Knowingly or unknowingly one would never know. I have seen many of my friends discussions and my discussions with same views but different wordings come back here after some time.

Jai, good to know that no one copied your articles and posted it here. Some times we are unaware about the persons who are copying our topics. Once i created a topic in mylot and one of the replies is identical to my topic, in fact the mylotter copied the part of the topic and posted it as his reply, may be he thought that i don't read the replies i reported about the member and the reply was deleted. Once i got a message from EC admin stated that one of my article is identical to other person's article and it was deleted due to it. I am sure the another person copied my EC article and posted it in his blog, i send a message to EC admin with date proof after that the i published that article again, it is really hard to find this kind of copy cats. May be some one is using your work too without your knowledge
