I was asked to rewrite a piece as a 'sample' but found that it was a straight lift from a health blogger, and effectively I was facilitating the robbery (by the individual posting the job) of another writer's hard work. What can be done about this? Can we as workers 'flag' unscrupulous copy agencies or bloggers that plagiarize other people's work and then get us to rehash it?
I'm a trained journalist and I know this stuff happens all the time, what with the internet being a big copy washing machine and all, but I didn't like being asked to do this as if it was a kosher request.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I can't find the job post, but here are the details of the poster:
