The Sordid Tale of Total DVD, Techtronics and DVD Times

We all know that DVD Times is the greatest DVD information source in the known world and it appears that Total DVD think so too. So brilliant is the DVD Times Bug Report section that our friends Total DVD have been printing them wholesale in their Datapit section since the beginning of the year.

To be fair to Total DVD, the articles weren't written by their in-house team, but rather by a Mr Karl King of the lovely firm Techtronics. So it appears that for at least six months, Karl King has been composing articles that consist of word for word copies of our material. Suffice to say, we were not best pleased when we realised the extent to which this was happening and promptly complained.

Our efforts were rewarded this month with the following apology from Total DVD which is printed on page 117 of this month's issue;

"It's been pointed out to us that some information in previous Bug Reports in Datapit have been based on text from the DVD Times website. Our apologies for any inadvertent use of copyright material. You can visit the website at http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk"
Total DVD no longer use material from DVD Times.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
