Write up on Fake Tennis Racquets

I was surfing the web today and was surprised that an online tennis store based in Melbourne Australia called World of Tennis really loved my original write up on the fake Babolat Pure Drive that they actually "stole" it and repackaged the content as if it was there's! See the stolen Regentville write up on fake tennis racquet here. Now whose the one advocating piracy here? Nobody from World of Tennis had the decency to actually write me to ask for permission for the rights to use my pictures and content. They just stole my entire content made a few replacements to suit their page copy and there you have it.

They proudly proclaim in the last line of the paragraph that "World of Tennis is an authorised dealer of every brand we sell. You can contact the Australian distributors of each brand and ask them". How ironic is this statement as they openly steal content from another site and repackage the copy as if it was their own. I am fine about sharing my content as Regentville Tennis Singapore is all about my personal research and findings on anything and everything about tennis, but stealing the content and pictures without asking for permission is really bad.

Got an email from a representative from World of Tennis today apologizing for the copy write infringement.

This was the reason given...

I feel deeply sorry about what happened. The article has been given to us by a member
of our team and we thought he wrote it himself, we couldn't imagine he copied it from you.

As you will see on our website, the page has been immediately removed.


Apology accepted. I just hope that in the future folks who want to use my content or images just give me some credit and a link to my site or article. I am fine sharing my articles and insights with everybody but doing extensive reviews requires doing lots of research. Writing these article also takes much time and effort so I would really appreciate if folks could at least give my site some credit before using my images and content.

Thanks again for your understanding.

Well - glad you wrote to these guys and let them know it was totally inappropriate for them to be scamming your article. I do not see a mention of it but I also hope they toasted their team member for such blatant plaigerism. I sure will not be looking at their site anytime soon.
