    Plagirism - stealing contents from Bloggers

     
    Malayalam is a language in one of the southern states in India. Community of malayalam bloggers, were shocked to see that a website (kerals.com) has copied more than 300 posts from different blogs and pasted in their website. This was done without their written permission, prior approval, or proper acknowledgments, and generating revenue from it through advertisements in their portal: http://www.kerals.com/malayalam/index.htm. Many bloggers tried to contact them, demanding the copied contents to be removed from their website, and the next moment, the person who complained was banned from viewing their website. Surprisingly they will get a message ""You have violated our terms and conditions.. You are NO LONGER authorized to view this site... ". Moreover, they started threatening and phishing, those who complained. More details could be seen in these links.. http://peringodan.blogspot.com/2008/05/banned-from-reading-my-content.html
