8-( 8-( 8-( 8-( 8-( 8-( FURIOUS !!!!! :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-(

I just started google to find out my NFOP article on Tech Head Brothers, and guess what I found that again someone copied content from my site without asking me and without any reference to the original author, in that case me.

I really hate that, I mean you spend time to create a website, to devlop it, to produce content, ok because you like that, but at least there should be a minimum respect about that.

So here is my original article:
Utilitaire basé sur NFop
Génération de fichier PDF avec .NET.

And here is the copy:
Comment générer un pdf à partir d'un fichier Word Doc en ASP.net?

If you haven't seen on the bottom of all Tech Head Brothers pages there is a copyright !!! On the site all articles are copyrighted by there author, and the whole site is also copyrighted.

Surfing on the site that is copying my article, I could find a name: Patrice Harmegnies and emails:
patrice.harmegnies@skynet.be
harmegniesp@tiscalinet.be
hpph.net@tiscali.be
even a picture:

If you find that way of copying not normal, please email that person to tell him to stop doing so. Thanks for your support.

Thanks to Didier for his support.

he gave credit at the very bottom:

"Article récupéré sur Internet ..." and didn't claim it as his own...but didn't give you specific credit...

http://

As timh said, he "admitted" that it wasn't his article, but didn't mention where he got it either. It's not as if the article were published on an anonymous forum or Geocities site either, your name is right there on top, with a link to your bio which contains ways to get in touch with you.



Funny thing is, as the bottom of the page on his site, there's a copyright notice. Gotta wonder if he didn't just put that on there as a formality. I'm with Jeff on this - send him a Cease and desist (or tell him to put credits and perhaps a link to the original article) on his site and CC the host.

Je l'ai traité de voleur.



I called him a thief.

Laurent Kempé

Hugo: There is no link on the top to my bio on the stolen page. ;) I think you mixed my website with the other. On mine for sure there is a picture of me and a link to my bio. On the copy there is no reference to me, but just written that "Article récupéré sur Internet ..." meaning that the article was found on the internet.



Timh: I agree, but I think the minimum would to get in touch with me to ask me, or to put a link back to the original article and author.



Thanks for the feedback.

C'est un belge, ca se comprends mieux. Ce qui m'inquiète, c'est que ce genre d'attitude, il doit certainement l'"enseigner" !!!



NB: si tu savais le nbre de fois ou je me retrouve devant un de mes articles sur un autre site sans mentions...

http://

Au fait, j'ai fais paraitre une news a ce sujet sur mon site:

Laurent, that's what I meant. The link to your information was (and still is) at the top of the original article on your site, which one would presume that he has visited in order to plagiarize your work.

MadMatt

Ne vous prenez pas la tete comme ça voyons !

Signale lui et il devrait bien sur accepter de mettre un lien vers le vrai auteur ;)

Allé bonne prog à tous

Hi Laurent,



Even that it wasn't the right way to do, the more important for you  is to be a leader. Being copied just mean that the other recognize your innovation.



best regards,

Christophe Lauer [MS]

Laurent, I know exactly what you can feel.



I'll tell you a little story. Back in 2000, I wrote a PHP tutorial that became quite popular. At that time, I used to go to work by train, and also I was buying a lot of magazines to spend time during my commutes.



On day, I found my PHP tutorial reprinted at 80% in a magazine specialized in programming, no need to name it, you'll guess.



I contacted the publication manager who answered me that he was sorry but he couldn't verify all the articles that were submitted to him. Hmmm... A magazine should pretty much know more than that about his writers, but, well, let's admit this.



I asked that they contact the "fake" author and tell him his was banned, and that they publish something in the next issue of the magazine to give me the paternity of the article. They contacted the so told author and asked him to reimburse what they paid him for the article (about a thousand of Euros!) but the guy never gave the money back. He had just bought a new bike and was running out of cash he said... Poor boy, here's a tear for you.



They refused to publish an erratum in the next issue, because it would have made "bad press" for them.



I ended up with a one year free subscription for the magazine... Period.



Amazing story, ain't it?

sami

My articles are regularly copied over the web by persons who are not apparently aware about copyright issues (ex : http://harmegniesp.phidji.com/iis6_1.htm">http://harmegniesp.phidji.com/iis6_1.htm and http://giraudyp.perso.cegetel.net/IIS/iis6.htm">http://giraudyp.perso.cegetel.net/IIS/iis6.htm). In general, I'm not offended if the fake authors are in school or poor young souls Wink. But in the other hand, breaking the copyright to earn money (this is your case Christophe) is a bad thing which should be condemned.

Laurent Kempé

Christophe: It piss me off those kind of shit. That's really a pain.



Sami: Ok, but in your case you have at least your name on the top of the both copies and a link.



Thanks.

Je suis effaré de voire quelle diarrhée verbale certains sont capables de produire sur ce sujet et la haine qui peut en découler.



Voilà aussi le pire dont Internet est capable.



J'ai un peu honte des propos de certains je dois dire !

http://

Ho Seb, je parie que tu es un écologiste bon ton !

Diarrhée verbale ?

Bizarre, moi je lis des réponses.

S'approprier le bien d'autrui en prétendant en être l'auteur ne dénote pas le meilleur que l'Internet soit capable.

Déjà dans la bible il était écrit qu'il fallait rendre à César ce qui appartenait à César.

Je suppose que tu considères ces propos comme de la propagande judéo-chrétienne et que tu te voiles la face pour cacher la honte qui te pétrifie !



Pour en revenir à Christophe, ton site est bien plus lisible que la copie, ce qui est un comble.

Le plus navrant, pour un 'enseignant', c'est que cet individu n'a pas pris la peine de corriger les quelques petites fautes d'orthographes...

http://

Avant d'assassiner les gens de cette manière, il faudrait revoir le contexte ...

Laurent est rentré sur un site qui reprend qlq développements pour mes étudiants dans le cadre de leur étude. Ces notes ont été récupérées il y a 2 ans quand je m'intéressais à Dot Net et ASP.net avec VB. Ce site est strictement réservé à qlq étudiants (les autres sont bloqués, sauf toi laurent pour montrer ma bonne foi) et strictement d'un point de vue pédagogique...

Dans la page d'accueil, il y a une authentification et j'ai supprimé le lien pour s'inscrire (l'inscription est réservée aux étudiants uniquement)

Effectivement, j'aurais dû mentionner les sources (c'est un oubli de ma part) et j'en suis vraiment navré.

Il faut prendre ce site comme un support de cours et simplement pour cela.

(il n'est pas exploitable pour les autres ...)

merci pour votre compréhension

Et je suis désolé que cela ait pris cette ampleur.

Durant ces vacances de Pâques, je vais remodeler tout ça ...

Encore une fois, merci pour vos propos ...

http://

Faites comme moi : mieux vaut ne rien ecrire comme ça on n'est pas copié ....

Bertrand Le Roy

Happens all the time. Many people think that if it is on the Internet, it's free to use, copy and claim as one's own.

A few years ago, I had one of my web sites (web site, not article or page, the whole site) copied. When I complained about it, the thief became very aggressive and asked me to provide proof that I was the author (which I could very easily do).

Actually, now that I think about it, it happened to me twice. And both times, the same aggressive behavior from the thieves.

Laurent Kempé

Patrice Harmegnies: Je n'assassine personne et franchement je ne vois pas ce que le contexte à avoir, même pour des supports de cours. Demandez-vous à vos étudiants de voler leurs livres de cours dans une librairie ? Vous avez copiez mon travail et ce sans jamais me demander ou même me contacter et tout cela sans que je sois en référence. Alors maintenant vous parlez, il y a deux semaines, de remodeler tout cela. Mais je vois que rien n'a changé et pourtant Pâques est bien loin. Alors je vous demande de supprimer de votre site la copie de mon article et si il y en à d'autres, les autres aussi. Et ce même si vous ajoutez un système de login pour vos étudiants, qui d'ailleurs ne fonctionne pas du tout et qui en aucune maniére ne laisse rentrer que moi. De plus je pense que nous n'avons pas gardé les cochons ensemble pour que nous puissions nous dire tu.

Discovery Channel switches to Silverlight in a flash

David Braue, ZDNet Australia

25 June 2007 07:30 PM

International Web development firm @www has built a new user interface for TV broadcaster the Discovery Channel using Microsoft's Silverlight -- the software giant's challenger to Adobe's Flash.

@www client services director Nicholas Ratsey told Microsoft's ReMix Developers conference attendees in Melbourne today the Discovery Channel wanted to create a rich user experience for viewers. And according to Ratsey, "it has worked well".

The interface for the current text-only Never Miss TV video site -- set to go live on July 1 across southeast Asia -- offers a range of content accessible via a single click.

Additions such as roll-down menus, personalised playlists and smooth scrolling through content were completed just two weeks after @www developers took their first look at Silverlight.
