This code project article:

A Beginners Guide to Bitmaps[^]

Seems to have copied information from:

http://paulbourke.net/dataformats/bitmaps/[^]

I haven't seen the reference of it. I wonder if it is fair?

Then you should report it in the Article Writing or Spam and Abuse forum.

5ed. Three of us answered at the same time in agreement with that.

Thanks. I accepted the 3rd one because it appears to me more complete but I don't know what I should do "Ethically" when a previous answer was also excellent?

Don't worry about it, points for answers are really not that important.

It is simple plagiarism and should be reported here: http://www.codeproject.com/Forums/1652005/Spam-and-Abuse-Watch.aspx[^]
Good catch!

It is possible to accept more than one answers if you think so...

Thanks! I didn't know.

The fairness of it is at least questionable. Even when it might be legal, the use of the images without mentioning the source of it is unacceptable ethically. Even such a simple image can be considered as a creative act, so using it without mention of the original source can be considered as plagiarism.

Would you please further inspect this suspicious article for other facts of possible plagiarism (usually, the Web search on phrases and code fragments tells the tale) and report it here: http://www.codeproject.com/Forums/1652005/Spam-Watch.aspx[^]?

Not that that watch forum is not just spam watch; it's for reporting of all kinds of abuse; and plagiarizing should be considered as one of the worst kinds if misconduct.

You are very welcome. Are you going to report it?

Done! I think it is also solved -> Article removed... I think. http://www.codeproject.com/Messages/4954906/Gone.aspx
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 2-Dec-14 13:40pm    
Yes, but the article is not all; the offender should be reported.
Thank you very much.

I expect that the person who correct what should be corrected will also do whatever should be done. He should know better than me, what should be done.
