So, I received an apology from the person who posted my work, but in the email she asked me "That being said, would you mind if I analyzed your work without posting my derivative piece?"

I'm not really sure how to take this.

That's like saying "Would you mind if I broke into your house and ate all your snacks, but we not report it as a theft because I didn't actually take anything?"

That's absurd. Here's your answer to her:

"Hell no, bitch!"

It's a shame they're still working on that device to slap people through the internet.

But really, can you actually stop her from analyzing your work, as long as she doesn't post it? She could even post her reactions to it with a link pointing to the original piece.

I love free, open, available writing, and places like Fantasy Magazine have had great success with it, but things like this make me wonder if maybe, for sanity's sake, we shouldn't have things quite so accessible.

Good luck Damien...as I'm sure you've figured out, we're all more than happy to...'handle'...your dirty work for you here.

Jaym, you bring up a good point. No, I can't stop her at all, although I'm going to let her know that if she's trying to learn how to edit or improve flow, she really should dissect her own pieces and use published pieces as a model, keeping in mind that every writer's voice is different and she needs to find her own.

And yes, the Shock Totemites rule! Def

Shiney: But I love you best. And Heavy Rain looks AWESOME.

Until that day comes, I'll just head on over and do the dirty work for you. Egads.

Just say that you hate them all, Mercedes. That way, expectations are low. And broken hearts are such cushy shoe-pads.

Girl, like i said before... if it's conversational and discussion-ish, I think it would be okay. It happens a lot. I was mostly bothered that she actually posted your poem, in full, without even asking. I've never seen that done before and don't think it should be. Someone's blog is not exactly an educational outlet, which is the only exception to copying another's work. She may be trying to teach, but a blog is not part of the school system and copying full text is direct violation of copyright. Like I said, if she were to discuss your work... but then again, she would have to look deeper than her own idea of style and format. She would have to know and understand the form, the reasons behind the way the poem is presented and etc. This is just laziness and failure to research her own intentions. Maybe she'll learn from it. Ultimately it's up to you, and hey, if she links to your stuff it's like free advertising, but she should have had the decency to ask before... not just after she got caught.

I think I'm late to the party. This is actually something I've been afraid of for years. Not that my writing is stellar enough for someone to steal. And did someone say cannibalism?
