Just recently, we found out that Yahoo! copied the very idea of digg in ranking information into its Yahoo! Suggestions site. Today, it was again reported that MSN built digg-like Norwegian and French sites. Even Dell got their new Dell Ideastorm site. And, if I am not wrong, it’s the Netscape first copied the idea of Digg.
It seems that everyone is now applying the Digg idea into its own website. Some bloggers and Digg users call it “Ripping off the Digg”.
I suggest, these websites built through the idea of Digg should give credit to Digg, for it’s Digg original idea and design that they are now using. Well, I don’t know if there’s a secret deal behind all these.
