Of easy money…

I have in the recent past come to see that people will anything for a quick especially when they think they have you hoodwinked to thinking that they have performed as per agreements.We had engaged a firm to helps in the collation of a local content directory for our allwoman brand. The gist of the task was to research on topics along various lines of interest to the East African woman and create and or modify existing content (from the numerous article database) for the east african lady populace.

The task would be done and the articles availed for publishing. On receipt of the articles it was realized that they were outrightly plagiarized and would result in copyright infringements of the original authors. Interestingly, they are still demanding payment for the non original plagiarized articles and even threatening legal redress.Surely…apat from the fact that we are deeply disappointed and the articles are of no use to us, i am angered at the continued insistence on payment, all the while forgetting that we are in the content space and can easily find the source of the said articles.

That said however, we have asked on public forums like Facebook for users to submit their personal stories and we start from there building a user generated database of content.Sop far we have three female writers contributing and recruiting their pals to write about things going on in their lives. This is a much better approach…
