In the interests of full disclosure, my work computer locked me out. It's tragic, really. But then I got to read this.

[profile] illadore posts Copyright Infringement and Me, sharing the heartwarming story of an editor of great (three decades!) experience in the publishing world who kindly and generously picked up one of her articles for her groundbreaking and experimentally-spelled magazine Cooks Source, and when [profile] illadore's ingratitude for her generosity was expressed via email, Judith Griggs politely but firmly explained the astonishingly simple legal statutes covering copyrighted articles found on a copyrighted page on the internet. And also has some truly astounding editing advice about the article.

The Stupidest Thing an Editor With Three Decades of Experience Has Said About the Web Today by John Scalzi

Cooks Source Facebook Wall - might be a few people there a bit stroppy about the entire thing.

Cooks Source Facebook Discussions, hey, has anyone gotten the cooks-source-bukkkake to load?

List of Cooks Source article sources. Please add more and hey, interesting list here: Paula Dean, NPR, WebMD, WeightWatchers, Martha Stewart, Recipes Today that's owned by Disney, CNN....

Okay, if the eventual goal is guaranteed professional and personal immolation destined to be cherished by the eternal memory of the internet throughout history, post to youtube videos of torturing your goddamn cat, okay (please do not actually do this)? 4chan will take care of it for you, three days, four days tops, and then you at least get the biggest pizza party of your life. You really don't need to create an entire business enterprise with an elaborate and strangely mesmerizing chain of events to get it done.

Dude, you invoked Martha fucking Stewart. And Disney. There will be no pizza. I'm not sure there will be like, air when they're done.

Again, that's Cooks Source, no apostrophe, and Judith Griggs, that's two g's.

Yeah, I really needed this.

Um, HTML meltdown in progress?

Fixed. My Boing-Boing was boinged.

Wow. As an editor of great (almost three decades!) experience, I feel qualified to say that Judith Griggs has absolutely no idea what she's talking about. And sincere thanks to her, by the way, for making editors look bad.

And yeah, I had to edit this to correct the grammar. Ironic, huh? :-)

The rage of the internet is coming down on you, Judith Griggs.

Really, all I can do is laugh at this. How to destroy your career and reputation in less than 24 hours...

And their server is now down. Awesome.

[edited to add: Twitter is overloaded too. Coincidence?]

I have to lol and lol hard.

Oh wow this made me very pleased to follow along... nothing like good schadenfreude to start off the day. :D

Oh, that is exquisite fail. Another link: Guardian.

I LOLed a river. Seriously, the replies at nihilistic_kid's LJ...so funny.

I can't believe anyone with 3 decades of experience would be stupid enough to admit to stealing another person's article without permission in writing. Isn't that "Covering Your Ass 101"?

I'm happy at the shitfest that's followed. Seems only fair.

I'm pretty astounded that the big name news articles are all sitting there going, well we don't know if this is true or not...
Hello! There are lists of the many, many people who have been cut-and-pasted. Are they doing any research at all? Each time the first comment or so has been pointing this out. Why is the average reader of these locations more informed than the reporter?

Whoah, the fail is strong with this one. I like the tag you used for this. Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to exercise their god-given right to use their intelligence.
