I didnt even know that anybody had used my lemon rice recipe and photos (and for all I know, other posts too) word for word, picture for picture, until a kind reader, Harsha, pointed it out to me and provided the link. I was actually surprised that they used my photos, because there are so many more that are way more worthy of plagiarism, as it were. (Sort of like, if you MUST steal, you pathetic creatures, at least make sure you steal from the BEST blogs! Talk about your second-rate copycats.)
Anyway, back to the main point. I dont even want payment, really... just an acknowledgement that the recipe/photo was taken from MY blog - a basic courtesy shown to someone who has taken the trouble to write out the recipe, make the dish, take and post the photos and publish on the blog.
And what I have said here is also on behalf of all the other fantastic food bloggers from whose blogs I get so much inspiration and pleasure... like Indira of Mahanandi, Saffron Hut, Vaishali of Happy Burp, oh so MANY more (all of whom are listed on my blog links!) The very least they deserve is acknowledgement, if their posts are used. So this is my little bit against plagiarism on the Net, whether it's by Yahoo or anyone else.
