Accusations of plagiarism have been a part of the music scene since the beginning, but in recent years, we've heard rumbles of artists who are angered about their work being, in their eyes, stolen. This new blog aims to point out these artistic thefts with specific examples.

The author of the blog is quick to note in some of these cases, like the Vintersorg album, the artist may have paid for the photos, but that specific artist has been mentioned multiple times,  so the case can be made that "he uses Google with reckless abandon."

The blog is relatively new, launching on April 12th, and so far has only called out works from Orion Landau, Marcelo Vasco, and Gilang P. Vergiawan. Besides being unethical, the author of the blog notes that such acts of plagiarism can land the band and their label a ton of unwanted and expensive attention, all because the artist was being unethical.
