I know I'm very late to write about this but it's better late than never! Kumudam Snegiti published my Beetroot Halwa recipe with picture in one of their July-2011 issues, under someone else's name (K.Revathi, Theni). Initially, I was angry with this particular person alone for copying my content without my permission but after seeing Sowje's post in September-2011, I understood that the magazine itself is responsible for all this. I mailed them many times and even left comment in every page of their online magazine. But they didn't care to respond.
Few months back, Sowje and I talked about this but we didn't do much by then. Yesterday, when Kurinchi posted about the same issue, we decided to make blog posts. Friends, only if we all join hands together we can fight against plagiarism. So Friends, Please do write a post in your blog if you were affected by any magazine and please give link to this post. Let it go in chain, so that everyone will be aware of this.
Please check my original post here. See the below picture & recipe that was published in Kumudam Snegiti.
Yesterday, I bought this month's issue (Jan, 16-31-2012). I could spot many of our blogger friends recipe pictures and recipes in that. I don't know how a reputed magazine is repeatedly involved in this type of act!
