Here, now, read about the Philipines’ & Asia’s first and only web designers’ event http://www.formfunctionclass.com/
Ok. So designer, CSS/web compliance advocate, Philippine Web Designers Organization (PWDO) core member and mini-conference resource person Marco Palinar found out today that his portfolio page was copied en toto by India-based websapient [dot] com under its own portfolio page, without a trace of reference back to Marco.
Marco is now a victim of what may be the ‘real’ online theft which has plagued the internet since its commercial use became unstoppable: plagiarism.
I am quoting Sofimi in the graphic above, she, a participant to the Philippine WordCamp back in August who attended not because she is a blogger on WordPress but also because she happens to be an accomplished WordPress theme designer.
Sofimi, Ia Lucero, a web designer, is one of many talented Filipino web creatives who benefit from industries spawned by the internet. Blogging is one such other activity that is internet-related, and having had the chance to meet WordPress’ Matt Mullenweg at the first WordCamp was a step further at crossing the virtual divide into a real-life gathering of a mix of ‘netheads’.
