Looks like Scam Rinpoche is really getting desperate for materials to post on his blog other than his long winded, paranoid and self absorbed rants.
His two most recent blog entries (among many others) are direct copies of people’s work. The first entry titled The Seventeen Pandits of Nalanda Monastery for example is the academic work of Dr. James Blumenthal presented by a Buddhist monk – Ven. Tenzin Peljor’s website (Tibetan Buddhism in the West) which Scam acknowledges in his little disclaimer.
Ven. Tenzin Peljor always compile/produce exceptional scholastic work and has obtained permission to legitimately reproduce the material on his website both from the Publisher and (in Dr. James Blumenthal’s case) now deceased Author.
Just because you put a tiny disclaimer saying you’ve borrowed another person’s work, does not make it legally okay. We thought you Kultcharans would be legal experts now considering how many legal cases you’ve filed against people. But just in case… What is plagiarism? You’re welcome!
Who’s authority do you have Scam Rinpoche?
Did you communicate with the dead?
The other Scam Rinpoche blog entry is titled The Fifth Dalai Lama and his Reunification of Tibet and is yet another replica of Prof. Samten Karmay‘s work sourced also from Ven. Tenzin Peljor’s website. Scam Rinpoche copy and pasted this article two days after the article went online on Ven. Tenzin Peljor’s website forcing Ven. Tenzin Peljor to change his note on the landing page to include the following:
“The authors, publishers and copyrights holders gave their ascent to all their articles posted on this website. Many articles were scanned from the original books, OCR processed, carefully checked for errors. All efforts were put into formatting and presenting them in a neat html format. Instead of copying and pasting the articles, think of your karma, and please post links. Thank you very much.“
Other little details have now been altered on Ven. Tenzin Peljor’s website. For instance the two footnotes with the asterisks were added after email discussion with Prof. Samten Karmay along with changing the Tibet map in the article about the Fifth Dalai Lama.
Scam Rinpoche obviously has no regard whatsoever for the hard work and length of time required for someone to put together such resources online as he simply copy and pastes.
Yet Scam Rinpoche has the audacity to write this on his blog.
How can something you’ve stolen from someone else belong to you?
It’s called a moral compass Scam Rinpoche. Unfortunately factories in China don’t see these… Nor can you resell with a 500% markup at your “Dharma” stores. But consider getting one please! You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how many less enemies you make.
Also, funny Scam Rinpoche would choose to copy material from Ven. Tenzin Peljor seeing that they feel so highly about him otherwise and go out of their way to harass him online. They also seem to really enjoy making silly yet highly entertaining memes attributed to him.
Final ending remarks…
