DOMAIN REGISTERED WITH GODADDY; ORIGIN REPORTEDLY CHINA
by Sharon Rondeau
The website purports to publish “high quality online news and digital media service that is reliable and impact positively on our Readers/Clients and society and for promoting knowledge, political stability and economic prosperity” but uses The Post & Email’s content, without bylines or attribution, to do so.
On Wednesday, we contacted the blog owner(s) to ask for either attribution and backlinks to our work or an immediate removal of all of our articles.
Interestingly, when the blog reproduced our article citing its plagiarism, it removed the URL to its website from our second paragraph.
A “Whois” record obtained through domaintools.com reports that the blog’s IP is located in San Francisco, that it 0riginates in China and its domain registered with GoDaddy.
NetworkSolutions.com also provided a result identifying GoDaddy as the registrar of the domain.
We will be contacting GoDaddy and possibly other parties on Thursday.
