Plagiarism

Here are some real life examples from May 2019 where other Squarespace designers copied large chunks of my content. Much of it is verbatim, but especially one person has creatively patch-worked my sentences and phrases. Which, by the way, is called patchwriting and also a big no-no. The designers of these examples have removed or re-written their content.

All of the screenshots with the white backgrounds are from the plagiarizers’ websites.

This one below is from a different designer who also copied the same page. What you see here is actually an earlier version of my page when I had still called it What does this mean for you and your website so she’s had this on her site for at least a couple of years. This one is also a good example of mixing verbatim copy and patchwriting.

This one was tough to see on other people’s websites. We are talking very personal things here, like personality traits, communication styles and ethical approaches. This is me as a person and my brand identity. Why would you steal that?
