    Plagiarism??

    The following is the text from the homepage of a now defunct agency:
    "Dear gentlemen,

    If this is the first time you have visited my site I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to My Fantasy World. I have spent the last 18 months discovering what most hobbyists want in an encounter with a fantasy girl. With that knowledge, I have put together an unmatched group of young ladies who will offer the service you have all been dreaming of.

    If you are an informed gentleman/woman or a couple who refuses to settle for anything less than the best, you have come to the right place. I have taken great care in establishing a wonderful reputation and continue to strive to make my team better and better (the best of the best).

    Offering this very specific type of Companion, one who will stimulate your mind, your body and your soul, I assure you that these young ladies will be the perfect date no matter what the occasion.

    My main goal with this agency is to ensure your total satisfaction. Therefore, I am convinced that someone from our team will be able to provide you an incredibly joyous and sensual journey!

    By the way, I have a strong policy that what you see is what you get. The photos on our site are 100% accurate and I refuse to retouch any of them."

    The following is the text from the homepage of a "new" agency.
    "De a r G e n t l e m e n,

    Is this plagiarism or have the names been changed to protect the possibly less than innocent?

    Questions:
    Are you keeping an archive on all agency's web sites? How did you get the "word-for-word" text of the defunct agency's site?

    The text looked familiar so I went to the "Way Back Machine" at archive.org.

    Copyright( provided the text qualifies as copyrightable) is inherent in any published work. A copyright infringement may be pursued in the country where the infringement took place provided the country signed on to the various international copyright conventions.

    The individual who created the original work holds a copyright and may assign, license, transfer, transport etc. the copyright to others.

    A corporate entity that creates an original work or holds copyrights may lose the same thru mismanagement, bankruptcy and under certain circumstances the copyright may be considered public domain.

    The text in question would qualify as copyrightable and as such your use falls outside the "Fair Use Axiom" so you should identify the agencies.

    There is no big mystery here. Had you bothered to read my post on the other board you might have noticed that I mentioned I would be getting help from a few people. Celine offered me the frame of her old site as well as the text. In the future if you have questions about something just ask... No need to pull a Columbo.

    Specifically no plagiarism, no copyright infringement, no case.

    Clouseau is closer.... I'm thinking Frank Drebin

    The whole thing is worthless minutia -- I mean, who cares really.

    Glad I could contribute to this likely soon to be (or at least should be) deleted thread.
