Recently the interest in topics related to Japan has been increasing… or this is what I had thought. Last few weeks I had been really surprised and happy to find that overall the access from outside sources to this blog had increased a lot. Over night it had quadrupled. I was even assuming that Japan was moving up on the global popularity list and interest in regard to business with Japan was regaining its previous strength…
I had been wrong. By a lovely reader of this blog I had been informed that my articles are published one to one on a different site. I had no idea, nor had I been informed previously. Quite many of my articles of this year were copied several times at Japan Blog.
I had emailed and added comments to my articles, but no response. Should I be angry because someone just copy pastes my thoughts to their blog? Or should I be happy that I am perceived as so good, definitely worthwhile to be copied word by word? Right now I am simply considering the last one, because I must be truly amazing
If ever Japan Blog bothers to consider my side of the story: How about informing me that you are copying my articles word by word? I just consider it fair.
