If you have ever had your web designer copy your landing pages and send them to your client’s clients or colleagues, you know the pain and frustration that can come with it.
It’s hard enough to get the right content to your clients or employees, but the other day my web design partner sent me a copy of a very simple template that was only needed to have a short description of the website, no images, no footers and no links to the rest of the site.
I didn’t even realize that it was being used.
So, when I heard about the recent attack on the website of the National Geographic Society (NGS), I was worried.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t my first time having the content copied, and it wouldn’t be my last.
It turns out that one of the NGS web designers copied a lot of content from their website.
It seems that they also copied the content from a couple of other web designers, who had copied it from their own website.
After all, the NGI Web Design team was just hired, and they were well known for their expertise in web design and content.
That made me worried.
Fortunately, the problem was a bit more complex than that.
After a little digging around, I discovered that the NNG web designers had copied some of the content they were working on.
In fact, some of their work had been used in a recent article published in the Washington Post.
The article was about how to avoid being stolen by the dark web drug market.
In the article, the authors describe how they had used a template that would have been easily readable by anyone, but that it had been copied by the NG staff.
I was not aware of any other examples of plagiarism of their own work.
The NGI web designers have been in the dark about this for a while.
In an interview, they said that they had never copied anyone’s work before and had never been contacted by anyone about it.
They also said that the template had been uploaded to the web.
But the NGs website is not hosted anywhere on the internet.
It is a server in the Netherlands.
The website was hosted on a private domain, which means that no one in the United States or Europe had access to it.
That meant that nobody else could access it.
I reached out to the NGA to ask about the plagiarism.
They responded by saying that they would investigate.
In response, I decided to take the problem to the media.
So I sent an email to the National Newspaper Publishers Association, the publishers’ association for media content.
The association is part of the Newspaper Publishers Council, which includes publishers and publishers’ trade groups, which is a professional organization that represents and promotes the interests of the print, broadcast, and Internet media.
In my email, I mentioned that my client had copied the NGF website.
I explained that I wanted to contact the NGC team and share the facts.
I also told them that the content had been taken from a template I had developed for a recent NGI project.
The team told me that they were investigating, and that they will provide me with any information I might need to corroborate the facts I gave them.
They promised to provide me access to the server that had been hosting the template and the content that had originated from it.
The fact that they could not provide access to a server on the darknet was surprising to me.
The darknet is a place where people can download and install software and steal the work of others.
The internet has become the place where stolen content can be freely distributed.
This kind of theft happens regularly, but usually only in highly targeted cases.
There are a lot more examples of web design copycatting that go unreported because the thieves get away with it, because people have a bad conscience and don’t want to come forward.
The problem with this plagiarism is that it’s impossible to identify exactly who did the copying, and the only way to know for sure is to contact whoever is responsible.
In this case, I contacted the NGE web designers directly.
They told me they were taking action and were investigating the incident.
The National Geographic editors did not respond to requests for comment.
The Washington Post article does not specify the content, but it does say that the web designer had copied a link to the original NGI template.
In addition, the article describes how a NGI developer had copied content from another NGI site.
But what about the NGEN website?
I emailed NGE about the incident, and received a response that was more terse.
I contacted NGI’s legal department to ask if they had any information on the plagiarist or on the NGNI site.
They didn’t provide any details.
What they did say was that NGI was in the process of removing the NGU website and was working with the NGLM Foundation to remove the template
