I was thinking the same thing Linda. While I’m not in the viral post writer category, the thought that someone can steal work I’ve laboured over makes my blood boil. It crossed my mind the other day how easy it is not just to steal someone’s work, as if that isn’t bad enough, but to intentionally pre-date it so it makes the true writer look like the thief. An article I wrote on my blog a while back was plagiarised by an intern at a national newspaper but when I pointed it out to the editor, they quickly mentioned my name in their article. Individuals might not be so honest. I’m not sure how we protect ourselves online.
