Plagiarism is the bane of quality journalism

Please consider signing and sharing this Change petition set up by Ginger Gorman. Many freelance journalists have seen their work being ripped off by unscrupulous publishers and sadly by other journalists. Despite being a clear copyright breach in many instances, it’s up to the person whose work has been copied to prove the case. For large publishers, this means spending time, resources and money on prosecuting a case; for freelance journalists, it’s usually not financially feasible. Those who blatantly copy know they can get away with it – because they have for so long. It’s time to call them out on this unethical and unfair behaviour.
