StatPac Inc. has created this Web site as a repository for our survey
research tutorials and articles.
graduate students consider our library to be the best on the Internet.
In fact, it's so good that it has been plagiarized by hundreds of other
Web sites. Some of the sites leave our copyright message intact
(it's still illegal), but most just copy the content and pass it off
as their own. Some Web sites are even charging for our research papers.
I'm Dr. David Walonick, author of
our entire research library. Until recently, it didn't bother me that so
many people we're plagiarizing my writings. After all, the idea was to make
the information readily available to graduate students.
However, Google has
changed their ranking algorithm. We've been severely penalized and no longer appear
near the top of the listings (instant death for a software company). Google
sees our papers on hundreds of other Web sites and penalizes us as
being part of
a "content farm"... they don't know (and don't care) that we're the
original author. Plagiarism has destroyed my company.
I'm now trying to rebuild our
company. All the information on this site is copyrighted, It is illegal
