Teacher always taught me plagarizing is WRONG!!!

Even in this day and age, where you can get any information you want from google or wikipedia, we all know that plagarizing in wrong. It's morally unethical and let's face it- STUPID! It's so easy to get information and write it your way that taking other people's written work without asking or getting permission is just plain idiotic. Yes, blogs are pretty much open to anyone, are very easy to steal from- but the question is- why would you? This is our intellectual property- and thanks to wikipedia here are some interesting facts about intellectual property.
Intellectual property rights are a bundle of exclusive rights over creations of the mind, both artistic and commercial. The former is covered by copyright laws, which protect creative works, such as books, movies, music, paintings, photographs, and software, and give the copyright holder exclusive right to control reproduction or adaptation of such works for a certain period of time.
In all countries where the Berne Convention standards apply, copyright is automatic, and need not be obtained through official registration with any government office. Once an idea has been reduced to tangible form, for example by securing it in a fixed medium (such as a drawing, sheet music, photograph, a videotape, or a computer file), the copyright holder is entitled to enforce his or her exclusive rights.
So according to the Berne Convention on copyright laws, which the US is a party to, this post is considered my intellectual property and may not be used without permission or proper citation. Please feel free to take this information and share it- but give the credit where it is due.

You may be asking why all this is important, well I'm going to tell you. It came to our attention today that the makers of the Robsessed DVD, Revolver Entertainment, have been stealing material from certain blogs. For the full inside story please go to ROBsessed and read their post here. We are asking our readers to support the Twilight Blog Community and please do not buy the Robsessed DVD, as it would be encouraging them or others to do the same. Once you've gone to ROBsessed and read the full post you can contact Revolver Entertainment at Also according to IMDB, Revolver Entertainment is listed as one of the distributors for Rob's The Haunted Airman, though only for the UK. US distribution will be done by E1 Entertainment. Also check out ROBsessed's update post here.

Now since that was pretty sad and kinda depressing I'm also going to put up what I like to call my Rob Montage. This is my first attempt at making a video like this so let me know what you think.


  1. OK, clearly these people have no souls. That's just crap. I abhor plagiarists. Thanks for blogging about this. :)

  2. Wow...this is amazingly crappy. People suck. I've commented on Robsessed to let them know that The Twiangle totally agrees and is boycotting the hell out of these losers.

  3. Um, I love your video!! The song reminds me of my other man because he's in the actual Lady Gaga video, Alex Skarsgard and so I can't go wrong. Pics of Rob and thoughts of Alex. Mmmm

  4. Who does that! There are a lot of times that we all share things in the blogosphere but credit should always be given where it is due! And what a crappy movie anyways. But sadly I am sure there are some out there who will actually buy it :-(
