The thing I hate next to bad service is plagiarism. The title above stole my attention, and since it was posted on June 27, the magazine has not responded. Sorry folks, the link is in Malay.
The “Saji” magazine is a food magazine published by Utusan Karya Sdn. Bhd., a company of Utusan Melayu Berhad (a public listed company).
Mat Gebu’s image of a fruit cake was taken, watermark cropped off and printed in page 24 of the July 2010 issue of the magazine.
This is unacceptable and a disgraceful action by an established magazine. Something that should NOT be taken lightly, and I hope he will get some kind of apology and compensation from the company. Well, it’s in a magazine and I doubt there will be a way to get all issues returned. No turning back.
The point is, Malaysia companies, no matter how big they are, we need to let them know that consumers will not just sit quietly and do whatever they want. Come on Malaysians, be strong and make sure we are heard.
p/s – Tak masukkan gambar dalam ni takut Mat Gebu marah. Tengok di link dia ye.
