I Thought I Saw a CopyCat... Meoww...

Salam & Hi

I prefer not to talk about cakes. Today I actually came across a blog which have a similar post to my pricelist. The entry regarding the price list was actually almost the same with mine; accept she changed some of it to Malay version. Its not the price (probably she has calculate all cost which came to that figures) that I'm talking about; but the wording & sentences. If only 1 sentence people might think its a coincidence but if the whole post is most the same what does it mean?

I'm not sure whether have you all face this kind of problem & how do you overcome it. As for me, yes you may make use my post as a reference, but not to copy it straight away (even by changing a few sentences). Come on, people have spent so much time & effort to create such post. I even change the post for few times to make it more simple for my customer & how on earth you who-you-know-you-are just copy all those thing?

The funny thing is they were also based in Perak or can I say I can reach to that area within 40mins? Gotcha... Hahaha

So, to Ms/ Mr who-you-know-you-are, I hope you know what you're doing. Is not easy to success. I'm not perfect but I work hard to achieve to this level & I hope you'll work hard & success too. Do not copy other people's work as it will reflects your attitude. Last but not least, please respect others masterpiece. Thanks


p/s: I always practice asking permission from others whenever my customer show other baker's design (unless they forgot the source). But normally I would inform the customer that I prefer not to copy the design because I won't be able to produce the similar design to the original ones.

UPDATES: THE LADY HAS CONTACTED ME & EXPLAIN EVERYTHING. CASE CLOSE. THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN =D
