did we talk about that site (aq33) before?

Post by VLozano » Tue Sep 27, 2011 4:23 am

I was searching the web for useful information about a SAP problem when I find that site... part of the found text seemed familiar, and checked our board too...

http://aq33.com/human-resources/Articles-007031.html
(the text what triggered my alarm was "Magna Grand Docot of the Tuly Idiot Order")

Just check this link:
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=252092

The thing that really annoys me is the bottom line of the leecher site:
"copyright 2009-2011 http://www.aq33.com"

But I'm not sure if we talk about those busturds before... maybe we were talking about other leechers, because I tried to search for aq33 here and found nothing :(

BTW, does anybody have news from the doc?

I would estimate that half of the QM "issues and answers" are from SAPfans.

We should have disclaimers and legal boiler palte somewhere on the site, (mayeb we do?) that indictes that all positngs and messages are copyrighted by SAP fans and can only be used by an embedded link and cannot be copied or quoted without permission.

That site should be asked to remove all SAP fan postings.

I think it's a chinese (at least, its host is) site. I'm not sure if they copyright laws are like ours... or if they enforce them as our lawyers do.

so who owns the copyright of the content on this site (SAPFANS) and do the posters have any say in how it is used?

I wish you good courage because courage will lead you to be a star and afraid will lead you to death. Be well and patient.

There was a site which had scraped the whole of SAPFans a while back but I don't think it's running any more.

We are frequently finding companies who pilfer content (usually the FAQ's) off our website - one of them owned by a poster on this site. DMCA comes in handy for US based websites. Not much that can be done in some other jurisdictions.

what amuses me most about the copy/pasta is that the posted answer is The Doc, smacking down the poster of the query, not a real answer anyway... it's a knowledge base item on how to deal with idiot posters
