Important Announcement!

A blog by the name of Movie Junkeee (moviejunkeee.blogspot.com) has ransacked our trove of reviews and claimed it as his own (word by word and by manipulating posting dates)! This is a gross infringement of our blog which we worked hard to maintain. To have an entire blog made up of other's toil and time is just plain rude. Should we be flattered that he chose our reviews to plagiarize and not the writings of other reviewers? No! We feel like we've been burglarized. So, we hereby would like for this blog to cease operations with immediate effect. That is the decent thing to do.

What do you think, fellow bloggers? Is this guy a deadbeat or what?

This is seriously shocking! He didn't just copy-paste your reviews word for word, he didn't even have the decency to acknowledge his source. And most importantly, he seems to have disabled the comments section so that no one can give him a public thrashing. Neither has the name or email address of the blog owner has been mentioned. This is a disgusting effort by whoever he is to gain quick attention. I hope there's something we could do to get that pathetic blog closed down as he's given all movie bloggers a bad name.

You're giving them spotlight. You should not link to them - maybe just live the url, but not link to them xD

I guess you can't contact them since they're as anonymous as can be.

Contact The LAMB (so that they know not to accept their application).

I think you can contact blogger or report them to blogger, or something to do with blogger since they're hosting the blog, they should be able to close it down.

My god that's terrible! Surely you can contact Google, It's a blogger site?

Worse thing is that they've popped a copyright notice at the bottom of the page!

Thank you guys for backing us on this issue.

We believe a true fan of cinema will not stoop to such a level. What is the point of putting up a blog if you don't put in any effort or input? We're still really annoyed that there seems to be nothing we can do. We hope that everyone who supports us and the spirit of originality will boycott this copycat blog.

We would like to know too if anybody else has been a victim of such a 'crime'...

Oh my that's terrible! I haven't had this happen to me and I sincerely hope it hasn't... I really think you should try to find the right people to contact to get them to take their content off cause that's downright plagiarism right there.

Yeah, thanks for your advice Hieu.

What a buttfucker this guy is. You should give blogger a ring about him.

This link is probably the best one to follow. Not sure how seriously they'll take it but worth a shot

Thanks Patrick, already reported...

Finally, The Blogger Team looked into it and removed his posts...

Patrick Gamble said...

that's great, allow looking at it (copying the opening of his/her reviews and gooling them) all his/her stuff is stolen from various sites

Yup, we can see that...
