Out of The Woodwork

Doing something I wouldn’t normally do on Kayotic Kitchen, but I’m using this space to give a shout to all my fellow foodies out there.

It’s websites like Eva.vn that anger me. Websites that think it necessary to not just blatantly steal many of my and other people’s recipes and photos, but to also go to great lengths to remove the watermark before publishing them to their site. Parasitic websites that live off of other people’s work.

If you’re a food blogger, you might want to check out if they are running some of your recipes as well. The website is written in Vietnamese, but browsers like Google Chrome will translate the pages for you.

Imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery, but I don’t feel very flattered when my work is downright stolen, cropped and passed off as someone else’s.
