Plagiarism--it's not just for Sari Horwitz anymore (Updated!)

Update at Sean's NC Gun Blog:

After emailed conversation with WND Editor Joseph Farah, they have pulled the shirt from their e-store! He has given me his personal assurance that a full investigation will commence as soon as everyone gets back to the office on Monday
That's doing the right thing, WND. Thank you.

We talked about the "Gunwalker" T-shirts, and where to get them (from the concept's originator, Sean Sorrentino) on Friday.

Now, as it happens, World Net Daily is stealing the idea, word for word. Go to that link to see what you can do for Sean.

WND may not be as famous and well-established as the Washington Post, but they seem determined to match Wa Po in one respect. Just as Wa Po pays known plagiarist Sari Horwitz a handsome salary, WND is similarly keen on stealing the intellectual property of others.

That kind of conduct makes, I suppose, a certain degenerate sense for a collectivist rag like Wa Po (Pravda on the Potomac, as Mike Vanderboegh calls them). For WND, where liberty and the free markets are supposedly respected, it reeks of hypocrisy.

Thanks Kurt. I'll be spending some time with the screen printer tomorrow and I'll get your shirt out as soon as he has them printed.

UPDATE: WND DOES THE RIGHT THING! After a quick email conversation with WND Editor Joseph Farah, he has pulled the shirt from sale and will commence an investigation on Monday when everyone gets back to the office.

Please join me in thanking the WND Editor and CEO for his swift resolution of this issue. Read the update on this post! http://bit.ly/nCcX9G
