Cooks Source Editor: Plagiarizing Got Us Facebook Friends, Joke’s on You

“Hi Folks!

Well, here I am with egg on my face! I did apologise to Monica via email, but aparently it wasnt enough for her. To all of you, thank you for your interest in Cooks Source and Again, to Monica, I am sorry — my bad!

You did find a way to get your “pound of flesh…” we used to have 110 “friends,” we now have 1,870… wow!

Best to all, Judith”

Judith Griggs, the Cooks Source magazine editor who got in hot water yesterday for claiming that taking a writer’s copyrighted work without paying them is OK because “the web is considered ‘public domain,'” shows in a Facebook posting that Cooks Source’s understanding of Internet culture and law is matched by its social media savviness.
