(Aug. 16, 2019) — The website, apparently originating in China, which we discovered on Wednesday is plagiarizing all of our work continues to do so even after complaints were filed with GoDaddy, as the domain registrar, and Cloudfare, as a proxy company which pledged to take appropriate action on the matter.

On Thursday afternoon, a response from GoDaddy stated that as the domain registrar, the company is unable to take action on the infringement.

Within approximately 30 to 60 minutes of our publishing a new article, reproduces it, removes the byline, and fails to place a link back to the original source at The Post & Email.

As we reported Thursday, Cloudflare states it is a “content distribution network” and not the website’s hosting company.

  1. Fran,
    Good post. I have noticed how so many Americans seem unwilling to pay even a little more to try to help stop the Chinese from ripping off America for 500 billion a year…probably more.
    Trump doing the right thing after years of previous administrations doing nothing will cost a little more now, but the long-term payoff will be worth it. Way too many Americans only think of now and themselves.

  2. Please reference “The Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works”. It is an International Copyright Treaty of which China became a signatory in 1992. Infringements of the copyrights of any co-signatory nation by another co-signatory nation are actionable in the respective aggrieved co-signatory’s courts. In the instant case China can be sued in U.S. Courts since both nations are co-signatories of the treaty.

  3. So many are crying because President Trump is working hard to hold China accountable. The anti-China tariff people would rather be able to buy a $2 pan now and have China take over the world than stop the Intellectual Property theft now. As an aside, I work in the music business and China is the only country that requires we submit a lyric sheet with every song that is accepted to be aired on China Radio.

    The China issue should have been addressed a long time ago, but it is better to address it now than let it go and have to learn Chinese 10 years from now.
