Ive been reading the Techniques for improving your game on the front page of BadmintonCentral. It states: "Here are some articles from the Washington State Badminton Association Newsletter which describes some basic techniques" I really enjoyed those articles, so I thought Id go looking for some more sites with that kind of information. After looking at just two sites, I felt compelled to post what I found here. Im not sure if this has been mentioned before, I couldnt find any discussion of it. http://www.badzone.co.uk/coaches%20corner/servicetips.html This site has taken a significant amount of information from the articles mentioned above, but doesnt seem to mention where they are taken from. I looked around main pages and index pages but didnt find any acknowledgement http://www.thebadmintoncoach.co.uk/ This is the web site of an English coach called Stephen Willis. The site is quite well organised and has a "Coaching Tips" section. I checked it out, only to find the content amazing similar to the Washington Articles. He doesnt go into the same level of details, but from reading it, the language used is very similar. He ends one article with the same quote about changing partners (I dont wanna go into detail). I checked the authors of the articles and he isnt one of them. The pages give no acknowledgement, and he lists them as "questions players have recently asked me" I apologise if Im making too big a deal of this, or if Im wasting time and space. Its just that I find this incredibly......disgusting. Its a good thing that there are other websites out there promoting badminton and helping people with information on how to improve their game. But to take information from a source and to use it without giving credit to the original author is plagarism and something we can do without. This is just my opinion, I guess it upsets me because at University, we were constantly reminded of how serious an offence it is pass off someone else's work as you own. I would really appreciate a few replies on this matter. Cheers -Nav PS. Since these sites have reproduced information from an official newsletter without stating the source, are they liable to any legal action from the newsletter or is it one of those legal gray areas of the Internet?
