The Life of a Writer, Part 2

So, I worked for a local major midget hockey team last winter, and I wrote recaps for their games on their website.

The local Richmond News ripped one of my stories off, taking my story verbatim except for a few words, without crediting the team and me. When I reached out, the response was snotty.

When I contacted the Canadian Media Council to complain about this situation — after all, in the current 24/7 media cycle, even if it’s just about a local midget hockey team, “ASAP” implies providing a solution immediately — the response was also not satisfactory.

The takeaway: It’s okay to plagiarize??
