Ben Kunz of Mediassociates took great offense in a Digiday column at having his website plagiarized. In that spirit, I took a look at some Denver area websites, and I quickly found one – Linhart PR – that appears to be the victim of some online theft.

If you need a website, I bet Jennifer Wezensky at JW Public Relations can cobble one together for you pretty quickly.

Linhart Public Relations vs. Indiana’s JW Public Relations

Both firms use: “We realize there aren’t always silver-bullet solutions to client challenges. That’s why we always bring together a mix of services and formulate a customized approach for each client.”

Kismet Promotions vs. Indiana’s JW Public Relations

Both firms use: “In this crowded marketplace, communicating the right message about your business or organization is crucial to building and maintaining a strong brand. It is imperative that you establish meaningful relationships with any audience that impacts your image and business customers, prospective customers, the media, employees, the community and others.”

Sherman Communications & Marketing vs. Indiana’s JW Public Relations

Both firms use: “Positive media coverage lends your business invaluable third-party credibility. Public relations can be one of the most cost-effective means of gaining positive exposure and building your brand.”

SSPR vs. Indiana’s JW Public Relations

Both firms use: “We provide every client with a focused plan to reach the right media and the right target audience. PR is not a one-size-fits-all proposition.”

Evan Carmichael vs. Indiana’s JW Public Relations

Both firms use: “Social media over the Internet has rapidly claimed its place as an essential piece of a public relations campaign. It is the new form of spreading the news by word of mouth. Call it word of web.”

Google News Submit vs. Indiana’s JW Public Relations

Both sites use: “A press release is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways of getting your message out when you have something to announce regarding your business. But to be effective, a press release must focus on the most newsworthy, interesting and unique element to emphasize the news angle.”
