Hi Admins :wavey:

It has recently come to my attention that I have been plagiarized on another board on the Internet and I am almost 100 percent certain that the person who "stole" my material is a poster on this board. And, in fact, the material was lifted from this board, from the "Locker Room Confrontations...AGAIN" thread.

Is there any kind of action you can take against this person or could I only try to get the administrator of the other board where my material was plagiarized (sp?) to do something about it?

Thanks.

since the material was posted on a different board, we have no jurisdiction there and you should ask the administrator of that board to take it off due to copyright violation... i'm sure they have a policy in place when you register there that clearly states nobody is to post copyrighted material (most boards do)
