    Thumbs down Xaphost - Shameful ripping

    Take a look at xaphost.com, then head on over to copyscape and take a look at the results. Almost every word on the home page of the site was lifted from somewhere else, one paragraph at a time.

    Not good, Nitin. Not good at all.

    Copy/Paste is a good thing as long as you don't violate copyright laws. Not sure product descriptions, etc falls under that kind of laws.

    The law is 50% letter of the law and 50% intent. Given this ridiculous example, I would say the case for copyright infringement falls flat on the intent portion. However, the paragraphs of product information on Xaphost's home page would satisfy both parts and would be a grand violations of various company rights.

    Hello,

    Regarding the content of Xaphost, can you please tell me what part of it has been copied from other sites?
    I didn't worked on the content of the site, i talked to the content writer and He accepts the fact, that he took inspiration on content from some sites, but haven't copied anything from anywhere.
    Can you please point out some of the copied content? If it really is copied from somewhere, i will definitely get it sorted out asap.

    Thanks for mentioning.

    Regards As Ever,
    Nitin Gupta

    Goto copyscape.com and search for your site. The copied content is highlighted in the results.

    Every paragraph on your home page comes from a different site, ~six sites total, nearly word-for-word. That's not inspiration. That's stealing.

    Give www.copyscape.com a look, and then fire your content writer and check your site from top to bottom to make sure it's your own work!

    Where are the thinkers, the creative, the individuals? It is a shame to think that in this industry - as competitive as it is - you would use exactly the same text as another provider. Especially when this industry is about being unique and offering something different. Be yourself people.

    What is shameful is this person didn't even flip and rip it. They just ripped it.

    I hope Nitin that you are able to fix this issue and don't blame the content writer. Unfortunately it is your company and image and thus you should ensure all is legit.

    Has the other company caught wind of this yet?
