Anti-piracy group “BREIN” accused of plagiarism

In an interesting twist of events, Torrentfreak is accusing Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN of quoting one of their articles without attribution, saying that it came from a “pirate weblog” but not naming TorrentFreak as the author. So, the TorrentFreak team has published an open letter to BREIN, outlining what they’ve done and how it goes counter to BREIN’s stated mission. Hilarity ensues.

Specifically, your organization has selectively and misleadingly quoted from our publication without properly attributing the source, in contravention of the Creative Commons license3 under which this text was published. This is a contemptible infringement of our own intellectual property rights, illustrative of a gross lack of professionalism on your part.
