update: Just got an e-mail, Helium.com has removed the plagarized post and banned Karter Sperry. Less than 24 hours, very good Helium.
I am so angry. I write on here to try and help others and to help myself. It irritates me when I found that someone has stolen my work and it using it to make money for themselves.
Yesterday I was searching the internet and found an article written by a Karter Sperry on Helium.com. Helium is a site where writers can published their work and get paid for their writing based upon the number of stars they receive. Mr. or Ms. Sperry plagiarized my letter to my son and published it as their own work. The stolen work can be found here: http://m.www.helium.com/items/1810574-addiction-and-recovery .
He copied my work from this blog location here: http://parentsofanaddict.blogspot.com/2010/03/message-to-my-son-or-any-other-addict.html
It is shameful when someone will steal your writings and make money from them. Even with a copyright notice you must be vigilant. You may want to check your writings also. The way I found this is to copy a paragraph of your article and go to plaragrism checker such as: http://www.dustball.com/cs/plagiarism.checker/ enter the copy paragraph and look for links.
I have no problem and it actually warms my heart when fellow bloggers use words from my blog to help others and I haven't found a single blogger that didn't credit "Dad and Mom". But Mr.or Ms. Sperry angers me!
