help wanted : stolen ws
 
Hi  Message from a very upset member: please forgive me if my message is not clear! I īm writing in a rush before going to work to let off steam and hopingto find a solution:
Can we do something about the site teachchildren? (http://www.teachingchildren.com.br/home.asp)  which keeps  using ws from eslprintables on their site. 
You may remember the pb was mentioned last year on the forum. Many members sent them  mails asking them  to remove their ws from the site. They never replied and haven īt complied . Today when I logged on eslprintables, I was shocked to read messages accusing me of having stolen  my own ws and besides of being reported.
 
My printable  is a great source of pride as it has been downoaded a lot. It helps boost your self confidence.I uploaded it in January 2008
 
 
I īm sure  you īll be able to see theirs is a much later date; besides , mine is an editable .doc  format whereas this is .pdf
 
Please do not consider this as advertising but a message to let members know about the pb in case it happens to them;
What action can we take against the teaching children site?  I īve sent another mail.
 
If you believe me please  moderators, see to it my printable is  not removed
 
 
sincerely  Sabine

thanks sylvie
 
  I ī ve just read my post ; for the record January 2008 is the date when I updated the printable; it īs been on eslprintables for much longer( I don īt remember when but at the earliest stages of eslprintables I reckon, Victor might be able to tell if he īs got the time)
 
Anyway I īve seen  moderators have voted not to remove my ws and it warms my heart! off to work; i īll read your rplies tonight
 have a nice day everyone!

Good morning Sabine,

Of course I believe you too and I have just voted for your contribution to stay. I am getting really fed up with all these problems of sites using eslprintables worksheets as if they were their own. Thank you for giving us the information and of course you were absolutely right to let us know.

Dear Sabine,

most of the moderators know about the stolen wss on that "cheating children" site and those who didn īt know have became aware after reading the comments under your (unfortunatelly) reported work.

I believe your worksheet will stay.

Hi Sabina, be sure that your ws will stay.
I can īt stand seeing our ws in other sites and being have to defend our rights.
We have to defend for the things we actually own.
The cheaters are around us.
I still have a ws in http://www.scribd.com. without my permission.
I sent messages to the admin but no result.
What īs worse,the so called owner put a picture of herself as an avatar as if it is her work.
But I can īt find her through this site.She has no photo and her nick must be different.
I am writing attention comments on her page where my work occurs yet she constantly deletes them.I mean she adopted my ws and doesn īt bother to feel ashamed and do the right thing..
What a shame.
But believe that we are with you and I also voted for your ws to stay.
