    Default Bingo Rewards Content is From MY SITE

    It has recently come to my attention, that an individual at an affiliate company has decided to allow all affiliates to use MY copyrighted material AND design without my knowledge or permission!! I am asking any affiliates using this content to please remove it, there is no blame being placed on you, just please if you are using it, it does need to be removed.

    Hi Larry,

    I was just browsing the material on the bingo reward website for a page I'm building. I just noticed that content from my website

    http://www.techwomanscasinolinks.com was taken word for word table and all to offer the affiliates under the site reviews.

    You can find my reviews here
    http://www.techwomanscasinolinks.com/bingoliner.html

    http://www.techwomanscasinolinks.com/geishabingo.html


    It seems the html was lifted right from my pages and it is unacceptable. You also need to get word out to all affiliates that if they are

    using this content that it needs to be removed right away. I have done searches and there ARE sites out there so you need to find

    them all and clean this up. This will do damage to me in the search engines because of duplicate content, search engine damage can

    turn out to last for long periods of time or forever and this is very serious, not to mention copyright infringement. Your website has

    actually offered MY content to whomever wishes to take it so I don't know how your going to get my content off of sites they are

    already on, but it needs to be done yesterday.

    I will be posting publicly on the GPWA board as well as other misc affiliate boards to notify other affiliates not to use this copied

    content. I do need to protect myself and my site.

    Regards,

    Meredith

    Wow - that's pretty tacky, to say the least.

    I am glad to see that it was removed.

    The Bingo Rewards site has been experiencing many technical difficulties recently and that may be why Larry has not had the opportunity to respond yet.

    I totally understand!

    From meeting him in Vegas I felt he was a really good guy and I believe that there had to be some reason for this. He probably didnt even know. Im sure he will get back to me shortly.

    I phoned Larry over the weekend and alerted him. He has been busy though and his cell phone wasn't on today neither.

    To be honest, he was pretty surprised and although "someone else did it" is an old cliche, very few Bingo Hall and Casino owners do their own programming. Most of them do however discipline their staff so I am thinking that someone, somewhere, has a VERY sore bottom.
    Have a wonderful day

    Thanks Brian from all of us for you alerting Larry.

    I do tend to agree with you and I must say that I have always found Larry to be extremely honest in his dealings, and feel that he really holds his affiliates in high regard.

    And as a side note, if the individual in question does not have a sore bottom....he should....lol

    Default My apologies

    Hi Meredith

    I must start by apologizing for this incident, it is my responsibility to monitor all content that goes up on bingoreward.com and I did not realise this ws plagiarized.

    I requested a junior staff member to write reviews for each site for me to be used on Bingoreward. I received 2 reviews on my desk which I promptly approved and which was published. Little did I know that the content was copied from your site. As you can see, I have removed the reviews and I have reprimanded the employee. In her defence, she did not understand the implications of her actions until such time as I explained these to her.

    Please allow me to offer you a 50% Revenue share for the coming month as a small measure of compensation for the inconvenience this has caused you.

    Again my most sincere apologies
