Plagiarism About Ms Yeah

There is no denying that I am a foodie so I follow quite a lot of food bloggers on my microblog in case I am hungry during the late night. One night, it occurred to me that I hadn't watched the updates of Ms Yeah for a long time. Therefore, I tapped her name in my search box, only to find that Ms Yeah was blamed for plagiarism.


Surprised and disappointed, I read an article written by another food blogger. According to the passage, the blogger claimed that his video originality was stolen by Ms Yeah and attached several pictures about evidence, while Ms Yeah's team made no response on the surface, in private they employed massive Internet mercenaries to keep public opinion under control by virtue of their ability of marketing. The passage also mentioned that Ms Yeah's team had a head for marketing. They turned Ms Yeah into a personified girl so as to win the fans' hearts.


Personally, I am inclined to think that what the passage said of Ms Yeah was true. When I first saw Ms Yeah's video, I couldn't help wondering how could she manage it. Also, I was impressed by how imaginative, creative, and manipulative she was. Now I figure out the answer - she has a team and the majority of her videos are copied from abroad.


However, Ms Yeah is just a representative of plagiarism, which, in others' eyes, is just a better remaking version, and plagiarism is never out of date.Owing to the Internet, we are capable of having access to an assortment of resources. These two keyboard shortcuts - Control plus C and control plus V - provide us with the easiest way to plagiarize. Additionally, the plagiarism of online novels, television programs, clothes designs can be seen everywhere, which is deemed as the tragedy of an era.


All in all, if the public shut eyes to such things and let them go wild, there is no doubt that the whole society will end up in a failure, which will deprive true creators of the originality and creativity, giving rise to brain drain ultimately. Thereby, it is essential that immediate action should be taken by the government and laws be enacted strictly to defend the interests of creators. Under no circumstances can we tolerate plagiarism.


However, now, I am stuck in a dilemma - whether I should cancel following Ms Yeah or not. I still want to see her videos despite the plagiarism.I truly hope you can give me some useful advice.


Here are two screenshots.

Perhaps  people always choose a thing depending on whether it is right or wrong,  however, sometimes, I think what you really like is more important. Following your heart is always right.

First, I have a question, when you are hungry and turn to watching the pictures or videos of delicious food, wouldn't that cause you even more hungry???Because I WILL! SO I stop following such bloggers. What's more, I strongly advise you not follow Ms Yeah anymore if the evidence is true. Because the followers are her source to make profit and she will never stop
plagiarism if she can't be told a lesson. Plagiarism is such a sever issue that deserve our efforts to fight against it. Thanks for your blog, I do think it's an excellent topic.

I am a witness in the "ROAD TO FAME" of Ms Yeah.She becomes more popoular and has a large of fans.Although she also receives some criticisms at the  begining.After being famous,more and more people like to watch her videos by virtue of the creative and appealing contents.I am surprised to know that her video is plagiarism after reading your essay.There is no doubt that some chinese  Tv shows like to plagiarize foreign progarms,incuding my favorite program Baozoudashijian,it also copies with others ,which really disappointed us.(but  there are several original programs and they are creative as well)
But,Baozoudashijian has owned its  style in the later and become more and more funny,so I expect that Ms Yeah can product her original  videos in the future.If not, she should be charged with her plagiarism.

I have the same feeling with Skye! I would get more and more hungry if I surf  food bloggers' personal homepages when I am hungry! To be honest,plagiarism has become more and more prevalent nowadays ,which stimualts much criticism by the public. If there is solid evidence of Ms yeah's plagiarism, you needn't to pay attention to her microblog anymore unless she would have some original thoughts and creations. If we tolerate those people who take plagiarism for granted, they will become more and more cheeky and rake in huge profits out of their plagiaristic "works".

Plagiarism now is to a large extent catching people's attention, which brings negtive effects to the whole society. From my perspective of view, you could still pay attention to Ms Yeah, only if she and her team reallized the importance of innovation and creativity. It is said that," a horse stumbles that has four legs." We could't blame them to much for such things, due to the fact that we could also do them. Besides, the public should also be clear and supervise the inapproprite behaviours on the Internet, and we can achieve the goal to build a innovation-oriented society.

As far as I am concerned, plagiarism is a disgraceful behavour. You can get inspiration from someone else's work, but never copy it. And I think you don't have to cancle your attention to her, you just see the beauty of the world through her.

Yeah! Your suggestion is right! Follow my heart! Actually, we tend to do something against our heart, which, in turn, disappoints us. Be what we like and do what we want -  that's what matters.

First, I'd like to answer the question you have put forward. I will not become more hungry when I watch those videos. hhhhhh.. Those videos give me the feeling that how wonderful cookery is. Furthermore, I watched Ms Yeah's video again this week. She went to the headquarter of Alibaba. Hotpot in water dispensers. Fame do benefit her a great deal. However, I still hesitate over my decision..

I also witness Ms Yeah's road to fame. Who can predict what will happen in the future? Hope more original programs can be produced and encouraged in the battle against plagiarism. I also hear of Baozoudashijian, which comments on matters happening in our society. And it deserves the praise since it has become unique.

True. Plagiarism appears to be the trend of modern society. If Ms Yeah should be proved to be connected with plagiarism, I would stop following her. Hope she can come up with original ideas. After all, nothing begins without plagiarism. They will grow and develop.

Yeah, innovation and creativity is what makes a team unique, especially for food bloggers. Hope our society will not fall short of our expectations and become more and more innovative.

hhhhhh.. I like your advice. In such fileds as art, phtography and cookery, it is difficult to create something new. Only those who truly have ideas can win public acclaim.

In my opinion, there is no doubt that we should boycott plagiarism, but firstly, we should ask ourselves, do we really want to abandon things that we like before. You want to watch Ms Yeah's videos, not because of herself, but her fancy ideas about eating. We are not in favor of plagiarism and this is enough.

You are right. I don't want to give up what I am interested in. However, as for plagiarism, we should say no to it.
