All of us who post the chords and lead of different songs here on IGT and elsewhere, make lots of efforts and spend considerable time to make it easy for others to play those songs.
They do this not to earn some laurels or kudos, but with a simple desire to let others lovers of music know how to play some beautiful songs.
They donot desire any thing in return, but they sincerely do hope that people donot simply copy and paste Tabs and Chords that they spent hours figuring out and post here on this forum and pass it as their own.
I understand that on a public forum such as this, monitoring of each and every post is not possible, however of we are able to detect some issue of such blatant plagiarism, it must be strongly discouraged.
Recently one of the members of this forum, copied and pasted a lot of tabs and chords form different sources (including mine..which i had already posted on IGT) and tried to pass them as his own.
I sincerly hope that the moderators if and when informed about this unprofessional act would take down these posts or modify them so as to honour the hard work done by others in tabbing them.
More over i suggest that we have a "Report Plagiarism Forum" where such issues can be raised and copying discouraged.
Hope we are able to sustain the Spirit of Music and stop any more acts of plagiarism.
