Food Quote – DANISH

Today’s entry for the Food Quote Meme is related to the issue that dominated food bloggers on facebook this morning.

Bloggers and particularly food bloggers do not take kindly to being plagiarized and today several blogger friends realized their content were stolen by another blog. I have never been able to understand how anyone can get any pleasure from claiming someone else’s work as their own; but I can understand when greedy people want to make money without having to work for it. That’s what most of these sites exist for. They steal your content, litter the search engines and profit from it.


“It is better to suffer for truth than to prosper by falsehood”
Danish Proverb quote

I have seen superb food blogs and terrible food blogs. I would rather read the terrible food blogs than to read a seemingly great food blog whose content is stolen.

    Gizelle, I’m amazed at what people will do for money. That is the only reason he is blogging and clogging up the internet, MONEY.

    Hi Jenn, welcome to Food Quote! I really meant what I said. I would rather look at a blurred poorly photographed food post than to have one with a photo obviously stolen from someone else.

    I so agree to your last line. I have 2 friend whose food pics were stolen, and it was really annoying that even a very simple soup picture can be stolen and be used on a different blog. I am not sure if any of my pictures have been stolen, but should this one happen to me, I’d be really angry.

    Re your FQ entry – I have tasted the cherry danish, and it was delicious.

    It’s my first time to join Food Quote, my post is up HERE.
