Thief

Blog Posted:8/17/2019 8:46:00 AM

In case some of you haven't heard. there is a guy stealing poems off of poetrysoup and putting his name on them. He has stolen at least 2 of mine and several of you guys. The site is power poetry and the user is ettahaustine. I have sent him and the website a warning to cease and desist. Some of you might want to go leave a message also because he has stolen some of your poems too. You will have to sign up for the website but it is free.

Thank you DT, Line and Nick for bringing this to our attention. I have had things happen to my poetry prior to this and maybe some was used by this person too. It is very challenging to track and stop this illegal activity on the internet. However, contacting sites to have the person banned does help, as it seems to have helped for now with this. Thank you, again.

this thief in the night~ left his prints in sight~ on that wayward flight~ around the moon's light~ he stole what you write~ harboring your ship's right~ for his boat is spite~ he caused a storm's might~ buoyed by his own smite~ yet fished the sea, quite~ and caught a indict~ this closure shines bright~ thanks to a beacon's light~

This happened two or three years ago to me and some others on this site. A 17-year old was stealing them and signing his own name. He, too, was removed from that site, AllPoetry. Stay vigilante people, there are cowboys everywhere.

Thank you for reporting this for me. I searched him but I didn't see any poems he said he wrote. We must be careful that he may change his pen name and do it again. It's sad, he probably likes poems, however, he doesn't know how joyful to express his unique feeling and thoughts in poems.

I heard he got banned? (from reading Edward's comment). AWESOME. I hope he does not creep up somewhere else, but his kind usually do. We have had one here that has kept coming back again and again (and don't worry, Tommy Boy, I am not talking about you, you are an honest soul who does not steal poetry)

As a Nigerian-American, I'm quite outraged, ashamed and disgusted this plagiarist("Ettah Austine") is Nigerian. Thanks, faker, for helping to further flush Nigeria's already tainted reputation down the toilet! There's absolutely no doubt in my mind that he also lifted my work. I missed an opportunity to put this fraud on blast! I'm so glad that he's banned--hopefully permanently!--from Power Poetry. It's not gonna stop me from cyber-tracking him with a vengeance. You better believe he's looking for another poetry site to call home...

A SLY POET THIEF FROM NIGERIA / ON SOUP CAUSED A BIT OF HYSTERIA/ STOLE SOME POETS WORK/SOUPERS WENT BESERK/ON THE RUN NOW COS HE'S IN FEAR OF YA/... On a serious note, hats off to who ever found this jerk. ( Nick Trim) I think and thanks Daniel for highlighting the problem. Have just searched for him and nothing came up so hopefully he's been kicked off power poetrys site. As someone suggested on this blog could our submissions' be somehow tagged with a faint water mark to say property of poetry soup etc, they do it for pictures and painting's and would make them 'too hot ' to copy and post elsewhere.

Thank you for your blog post Daniel, and thank the rest of you for encouragement to send email messages to Power Poetry. FYI, I received the following email from Power Poetry after I sent them an email last night: "Hello, We apologize that poetry was used without poets' permission on PowerPoetry.org. The offending user has been notified, blocked from PowerPoetry.org, and directed to PowerPoetry’s Note on Plagiarism. All poems connected to the account have been deleted.

Thanks for your and other's efforts. Just a thought: PS have got the tech savvy to maybe blacklist that guy from ever posting again - under his name or any other name. He must surely leave an electronic footprint which can be followed up. We post here in good faith and PS might come up with a working plan of action ... I do know that one can't copy and paste from some sites - that might be one solution?

Date: 8/18/2019 10:15:00 AM
How do you tell?? They have no Poet Name list ... I did a search there for his screen name but all that came up was the posts by our members about his plagiarizing. I assume they've taken "his" account down? I've had seven times since I've been here where I was contacted by college professors saying they had students trying to use my poems - one for a final exam. They were all disciplined and had to contact me directly and apologize, though I told the colleges I did NOT want them expelled. Kinda sad, really, but also flattering in a way. At least the teachers are diligent to spot it and follow up. The most recent was a very early one called "Crow's Command". Hopefully this is nixed.

Daniel thanks for letting us know about this thief of poetry, and thanks Line for bringing it to my attention. This is an unforgivable act. No point now of me trying to see if he stole any of mine, but at least his account was deleted from power poetry, but what is stopping him from going on another site and doing the same thing, we are so at risk when we post our words online even when we put copyright protected beneath . . . and thanks to all who sent messages to stop this guy on power poetry.

I saw this blog , checked and found one of my poems this thing has stolen. I did not bother checking for more, as finding more stolen does nothing to improve the situation. Complaining will very likely do no good. Amazing how brazenly these that steal do so.. A Nigerian, figures-- so many scammers/thieves come from there.

I found him on twitter and Linkidin under the name of Ettah Austine. He is a Nigerian. As he says in his profile piece on PP.org: "As a writer & a creator, I'm giving you my experiences. But just take what I give you. You ain't got to pry beyond that." I've got a feeling that you are not going to make any headway by complaining ...

Thanks for the heads up DT, Nick Trim alerted me to his plagerism last week I know this guy has posted a limerick collaboration of mine - at least all the names of the poets who took part were still on there but i also found another one of mine. He even has the gall to post a Leanne Rimes song on his page I am quite sure he didn't write that either!. I did send a mail to the admin team and got a stock reply but have heard nothing back since. i also reported a poem of Charma's that I found and some others that I recognised.
