It was interesting, especially on the Arabic edition. I would like to thank everyone who made a positive comment in that post. My only mistake is not notifying the editors of Apple World about it. Hopefully we don’t need to resort to that.
The post author has replied, he said that he got the post as an email and he published it. Unfortunately that’s not how most web sites operate. It’s important to understand the concepts of “citation”, “quoting”, “referencing”. It is a serious issue with most Arabic content.
I hope this “drama” has raised awareness regarding Arabic content and intellectual property.
Jeff Gamet of the Mac Observer had an interesting observation about Arabs and intellectual property, his quote: “That’s so weird considering so much of the world’s intellectual growth came from the Arabs. :)”. strong words, man.
Updated – Saudi site steal intellectual property Update 1: Post now included a link to my post as a “source”. Update 2: Post is now gone. Update 3: At least 2 people commented that their site design copies SaudiMac. Interesting observation even though I don’t see it. By the way it’s this and this comment. I didn’t claim anything. People make the weirdest assumptions. Update 4: Arabs (Except 3) accused me of slander. I guess the mentality is still copy-paste mentality. I am very sad to see this, “Apple World – Ø¹Ø§Ù„Ù… Ø¢Ø¨Ù„“, an Arabic site that we promoted and recommended last year has flat out stole our intellectual property. This is our original post on the Arabic site titled “ARM CEO denies rumors that Apple is buying them“. Here’s a screen-shot: Has been duplicated here (link will probably be deleted so here’s a screen-shot): This is very disappointing to see. Actions like this are only hurting Arabic websites.
