HHC On IndiaFM!

    17

    Recently, we were asked by IndiaFM to write a series of fashion posts and have gladly accepted. So, if you saw our post out there, it was actually us writing!

    But, not everyone plays nice. If you don’t believe us, check this side by side of our post and an article we found on Mid-day!

    Is that plagiarism or is that plagiarism!

    1. Hey P and P,
      Its totally annoying to have your ideas duplicated but I don’t think this is plagiarism. On my blog, I will post something and a day later the same picture will appear on another’s gal’s blog with different writing…unfortunately, nothing you can do about it. Photos are all over and if you use it, someone else can as well. Keep an eye out for people actually copying your writing word for word without citing it…then you can get them!

    2. Kohl Girl,
      Its not the images that we are talking about. Of course, images circulate.

      This was our text
      “Also, while we think the Fendi skinny belt is super cute, way more so than the Fendi Large B
      Buckle Belt, the way Shilpa is flaunting it is just not fly”

      and below is Mid-day’s!
      “We saw the super cute Fendi skinny belt of Shilpa’s teenie waist. But hiking up your tee to flaunt it, just ain’t fly”

      Now, do you see why we are a tad bit annoyed!

    3. I completely agree with P&P .A newspaper with this reputation (‘ i think it’s run by Times Of india) would do something like this hurts my heart. thtz whyi see in u.s colleges plaigarism is so punishable. i agree with tht. I hope we can baash the writer of the mid day. It’s k just boils me to see this

      good luck

    4. Payal and Priyanka, I agree with you guys. This IS plagiarism and you need to complain to the editor like anonymous said. You may not get a huge sum a la Ram Sampath (i know i’m just teasin ya)
      but you should certainly bring this to the editor’s attention so someone else’s words won’t get paraphrased or written verbatim without any citation. At least that’s what my english teacher taught me and i’m sure they know this very well.

    5. You should certainly take this up with the Editor of Midday and cc that to the Press Trust of India.

      Also, while looking thru the India FM writing.. I thought I saw what looked like a visible white panty on Kangana underneath that ripoff White gown…what sayyyy???

    6. The author of that article must be one of the regular readers/visitors of this site.
      You are like one of those designers who change 10-15% in the original design of the garment to make it yours. Just like the designers who make replica of other designers, whom you may despise/criticise, i.e. if you understand the effort & time spent in creating something that you can proudly say is yours than some borrowed ideas.
      Why don’t you apologise and ask the bloggers if it’s alright to post, and provide reference in future? I am sure you will be forgiven.

    7. I am laughing off as I read for the second time. Hilarious! It’s so convenient and quicker to change a word or two, and make it yours.

    8. That’s so wrong! I love this blog..and I am just shocked that a paper like mid-day can do such cheap thing!
      You should get the edior to publish an apology in the paper. This is ridiculous!
      If you give us the edior’s id, I am sure I will also write to them and hopefully other readers of the this blog will do that too?
