Before we start, it is mostly my fault for trusting BNL. I should’ve put things down in paper, cause I have learned how unprofessional, cheap and sad that website is the hard way. I have learned now never to trust in anyone motivated by one thing: money.
When I submitted my resignation at BNL, I decided to keep things to myself, after all, what’s done is done. However, consecutive transgressions on the part of BNL has forced me to shed some light on a few, very sad things. I won’t discuss all the dirt, because that’s not who I am. I will only state the things that involve me personally.
- The Weekly Leaks name was created by a close friend of mine, for me. I published it on BeirutNightlife as my own column, much like the “La Wloooo” series by Rita Dahdah. In other words, I created the concept and content, despite BNL’s protests against the name, and my insistence on putting it. Also, anticipating that BNL will seek to capitalize on it after my departure, I made sure I registered it legally, and on the Creative Commons website. BNL have no right to use this name, and they are in breach of copyright.
- Intellectual Property Theft I have created dozens of post in my time at BNL. You will be glad to find that my name has been removed from every single one. The reply to this by BNL? Very mature, and grammatically correct! Check the tweet
