Yahoo School Of Plagiarism - മോഷണം.കോം

Happy news for those 'wanna be great author, but no ink in my pen guys/gals'. IT giant Yahoo has started an online free demonstration on how to do it effectively. According to Yahoo, it is as simple as Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V as long as the keyboard you use, has got these 3 keys on it.

Yahoo, succesffully demonstrated it on its new venture Yahoo Malayalam.

Yahoo also gives you tips on how to safe guard yourself , if at all anybody claims that the content you have published was already published by someone else. Only thing is that you might need to appoint a paid labourer so that you can easily come out of the issue by blaming this guy if you get caught red handed. The users presume that this sort of bugs exist only in the beta version. They hope Yahoo will surely comeup up an upgraded version where nobody will be able to differentiate between the actual author and the lifter.

Jokes apart, the briefing of the actual story is like this. Yahoo India copied contents from many places including blogs and online magazines and published them in Yahoo Malayalam. The author of one such content informed Yahoo about this but the giant did not even care to pay attention to the person‘s concerns, but simply removed the alleged content. Malalyalam Blogger community is now on a protest front, asking Yahoo to apologize which is an act of minimum courtesy anybody would expect from a MNC giant.

I too join hands with them as I respect Copy Right Rules and also because I'm proud to be part of this community.

യാഹൂവിന്റെ മലയാളം പോര്‍ട്ടലില്‍ പല മലയാളം ബ്ലോഗുകളില്‍ നിന്നും ഉള്ളടക്കം മോഷ്ടിക്കപ്പെട്ടതായി കണ്ടെത്തിയിരുന്നു. അതിനെ കുറിച്ചെല്ലാം ഇവിടെ വായിക്കാം. ഇത് സംബന്ധിച്ച് യാഹൂവിന്റെ ഭാഗത്ത് നിന്നുണ്ടായ നിരുത്തരവാദമായ പെരുമാറ്റത്തില്‍ ഞാന്‍ എന്റെ പ്രതിഷേധം രേഖപ്പെടുത്തുന്നു. കുറഞ്ഞ പക്ഷം പരാതിപ്പെട്ട ബ്ലോഗറോട്/ബ്ലോഗര്‍മാരോട് യാഹൂ മാപ്പ് ചോദിക്കണം എന്ന ആവശ്യത്തില്‍ എന്റെ ശബ്ദം കൂടി ഉള്‍പ്പെടുത്താന്‍ ഞാന്‍ ഈ അവസരം ഉപയോഗപ്പെടുത്തുന്നു.
