Travel blogger Mridula has been a victim of plagiarism from mainstream media several times. This time the culprit is Hindustan Times. She is fighting it out and contesting the claims from the editors who say this was an accident. It is a wonder how so many such accidents have been happening these days. Like an accident that NDTV website had with one of my images. Blog aggregators like desipundit and blogbharti are full of incidences of such theft from mainstream media.
I have written to the editor of Brunch Ms. Poonam Saxena now. By evening she replied agreeing that there has been a mistake because copyright issues were not clear and they are willing to issue a correction and talk about compensation. I strongly disagree.
Here is more about the incident it from Mridula.
