Article By: MyPrintingPress
Editorial and opinion



As a way to help put a stop to the plagiarizing of authors on Booksie, I am proposing a right click ban. Please spread the word.

As many of you probably already know, plagiarism is getting to be a big problem for the authors, as well as the readers, of Booksie. It is sad to think of anyone on this site, regardless of what genre they post in, having their hard work stolen. Nobody deserves that.

It is for this reason that I am asking all of you to sign this "petition" with a comment. The more people who read and/or comment, the more likely it is for even more people to see it. I would also like to urge you to email Booksie and complain about the plagiarism problem. A simple right click ban, which would make copying harder, would be a huge step in the right direction in fixing this unfortunate issue. I don't know about you, but I like being able to read on this site, but I know that many authors will refuse to post anymore if they don't feel that their work is safe. To be honest, Idon't blame them one bit. Not at all.

So, please help to spread the word. I don't want to give up on this site just yet.

PS: Just in case any of you were wondering or were skeptical about this, I have disabled all of my work on this account. I'm not trying to gain attention for my own stuff; I simply want to try to keep the work here safe.
