Plagiarism is Bad

So, there's a guy out there plagiarizing other developers' work.  Whitepapers, articles, etc.  Brent Ozar has had some work stolen by this guy.  Here's a link to Brent's blog post on Captain Lowlife, as I'll call him.  http://www.brentozar.com/archive/2010/03/plagiarism-inspiration-and-john-dunleavy/

I'm not using his name or his company name (which he is the owner of) because I don't want to help his search results, but I would suggest staying away from a company that uses other peoples' work in their blog.  Sounds like he might have a hard time doing the actual work himself.

UPDATE: I decided to post his name and company after all.  Might as well associate them with plagiarism.  His name is John Dunleavy, owner of SQLTech Consulting.


  1. Although, wouldn't it be fun if the first page of results on google for him or his company had plagiarism in the title?

  2. Yeah. Maybe it's time for an update to help that.
