Where does it stop?


Plagiarism is stealing!! I just got a phone call from someone giving a heads up that someone had copied one of my articles word for word and posted it on a web site as their article. This is highly unprofessional and illegal. The person who did this is named Scott Feldman and the website was firstathlete.com

This kind of stuff has to stop. This has happened to me in many shapes and forms over the past ten years. Every time it happens it gets a little harder to take. If anyone knows this individual please clue him in. He owes me an apology and should be reprimanded by whoever certifies him if he is certified. If you want to use something I have produced, write and ask permission. Many people have done this and I have hardly ever denied anyone permission. Also remember just giving someone credit is not a license to steal, you must first seek their permission, preferably in writing.
