Content from plagiarized



The popularity of has increased exponentially. In a short span of 7 months or so, some of the leading players in India’s gaming industry, gaming enthusiasts and both the Indian and International legal fraternity have appreciated the information provided by our website.

However, recently it has come to my notice that the first article written on this website has been plagiarized and copied by a certain Prashant Mali, a self-proclaimed cyber law expert and advocate.

My article Gambling Laws in India: An Introduction, published on this website on 10th October, 2010 has been copied word-for-word by Mr.Mali in his “guest” posts for and somewhere in April, 2011 (the plagiarized articles can be accessed here and here)

Strict legal action will be taken against the fake authors who have copied content from this website and the intermediaries who have recklessly published it (Readers can view my post and the plagiarized post and suggest measures that can be taken). It is again reiterated that strict legal action will be taken against those copying ideas, content etc. from for republishing in any form whatsoever without taking the author’s permission.

I would again like to thank readers of whose continuous support and feedback has made the leading website for any content relating to gaming laws.

Jay has researched extensively on gaming laws and has been cited by various media houses and journals as an expert. He has helped leading newspapers in their stories on gaming laws. Jay completed his B.A. LL.B. (Hons.) degree from NUJS, Kolkata in 2015 and is currently based out of Mumbai.

    You must take all the action, you can. This is a word to word rip off. He thought you would never find it. I am perturbed by such behaviour

    Dear Sir,

    We at the Legal Blog sincerely express our deep apologies for this episode.

    The article was published on the firm belief that Mr. Prashant Mali was the author of the same. We had sought his permission to publish the same and he had consented.

    Be that as it may, we have removed the infringing post from the website as requested by you.

    Once again, we regret the inconvenience caused to you.

    Dear Jay
    I think you should first check from where you have copied the stuff word to word including the headings instead of throwing mud on other people. I am giving you the source from where you have plagiarized

      Thanks for pointing this out. In fact it seems that this book publisher IBP USA has also plagiarized content from the same October 2010 article mentioned in this post at pages 32 and 33 and hence the particular content in the book should be removed.
