I was doing some research on Taiwanese martial arts just now. I happened upon a most interesting and infuriating thing. The Taipei Representative Office in the U.K.
at this site
took it upon themselves to fucking steal one of my articles, hack it up, slap it on their website (without my name of course) and without paying me a dime.
I get fed up with the cunts running the ROC government doing shit like this. They (the ROC government) is quick to kiss AIT and AmCham’s ass, telling them IPR rights are taken seriously then in a heartbeat turning around and simply stealing my intellectual property. This by the way is not the first time I have seen “Brian words” stolen and slapped on some stinking Taiwanese government website. This time just happened to be the straw that causes me to go into a cyber-fury.
And I will write a hot little note to all concerned.
Yours in stolen words,
p.s. here is my gentle little missive to them:
Dear Taipei Representative Office in the U.K,
The article on this page of your website
was written by me. I do not appreciate your theft of my intellectual property. You do not have my permission to take my article, hack it up and slap it on your website without my permission or any payment to me. The ROC government makes a big show of how IPR rights are taken seriously then I turn around and see my words stolen by your government agency.
Remove the article immediately.
