Cooks Source Editor Finally Responds... Makes Things Worse [Updated]
from the maybe-copy-a-recipe-for-humble-pie dept
And, for most of the day, Griggs herself remained silent. However, she has finally responded, and done so in a way to make things worse. She wrote a mocking apology, which I'll post in its entirety (typos and all), since Griggs has made it clear that anything she puts online she intends to be in the public domain:
Hi Folks!So, that's not an apology at all. And it's mocking why people have been ganging up on her. So, once again, people started commenting and mocking the magazine.
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
There's lots of people here that do not seem to understand a few basics yet they seem to all be experts in the print business.
Speaking of not understanding a few basics, why not start with how copyright does, in fact, apply to the internet?
Notice that nowhere in this is there any attempt to actually explain how she thought it was okay to repeatedly copy articles and photographs into a magazine while presenting them as if they had been specifically commissioned or licensed for the magazine.
Anyway, we'll continue to monitor and update with any evidence of real comments from Griggs.
