Plagiarism is a serious issue on steemit. As we aim to become the top blogging platform on the internet, we need to ensure that original contents are created on the steem blockchain. However, every single day, we are seeing abusers copying contents and posting on their own steemit account. This behaviour is strongly frown upon and the community is encouraged to take action.
