Linoge provides a service to the world, documenting the long history of copyright infringement at the site The Truth About Guns (no link, sorry - I only link to original sources).
It made me wonder what the community might do. Offered as a modest proposal to reduce the amount of thievery is this suggestion: every gunblogger swipe one of his posts, once each week. Just tag it in the category "Robert Farago and The Truth About Guns swipes content and infringes copyright". A half dozen or dozen folks doing this will give a regular diet of swipery aimed back at him.
There are two benefits to this strategy, both of which will make the Internet a nicer place.
1. Mr. Farago will find that sauce for the goose is just as tasty when applied to the gander. In particular it will give him a visceral understanding of the meaning of the expression if it's on the net it's fair game.
2. Google is very likely to start recognizing the HTML metadata Robert Farago and The Truth About Guns swipes content and infringes copyright. Interesting search results might be forthcoming.
It is a modest proposal, as I said. Doubtless the plan could be improved. So get improving.
