Paypal and Plagiarism

Plagiarism seems to be the theme of this week. Many people have been victims of plagiarism and should never have to experience such a terrible thing. One of my favorite authors, J.L. Langley, wrote on her experience with plagiarism: Link to News

No matter how nice the person is who committed the plagiarism or how apologetic they may seem they are still thieves and should never have made a penny off of other authors hard work. In this writers opinion I say sue the pants off the plagiarist!

Another great article to read is: Link to Blog

Theo Fernraven discusses all of the topics I bring up in this post which are all important as they effect us writers and readers!

 

Paypal is absolutely unbelievable!

Here is a great article on the topic: Link to Article

The part that made me upset the most is: “Under the new PayPal policy, Mark Corker of Smashwords told all the Smashwords authors they would also have to remove paranormal romance that included shape-shifters – if the shape-shifters were to have sex in their non-human forms.

When PayPal told Excessica’s Selena Kitt that BDSM fiction was not allowed in her catalog she wrote on her blog (selenakitt.com NSFW),

That’s right – they weren’t just targeting illegal acts between non-consenting adults. Now they were targeting legal sex between consenting adults.

For what it’s worth, BDSM includes a very wide category of sexual practices that are legal in the United States, and its activities and fantasies are not regarded by psychiatrists as an illness or disorder.”

It makes me wonder what kind of censorship is next. This is virtual book burning!
