Dear US bloggers: Remember how Sen. Sotto challenged you to sue him for plagiarism? Here's how...
If you recall, this is what Senator Vicente Sotto III said after it emerged that he might have plagiarized a US blogger in a speech he made before the Senate.
Sotto first publicly issued this challenge to blogger Sarah Pope after his chief-of-staff Hector Villanueva had gotten in touch with Pope in connection with Sotto’s lifting of certain passages word for word from her blog The healthyhomeeconomist .
Senator Sotto then told the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the country’s largest newspaper: “Ang tanong doon may copyright ba iyong blog niya? Kung may copyright iyong blog niya, either dapat mag sorry ako or mag-apologize ako. Or idemanda niya ako [The question is, is her blog covered by a copyright? If the blog has copyright, either I say sorry or I apologize. Or she can sue me]."Disclaimer: The views in this blog are those of the blogger and do not necessarily reflect the views of ABS-CBN Corp.
