    • I think our team is pretty good and the ‘originators’ of most of the things other law websites copy (sorry, if I am being arrogant here). Also, we believe in putting information in a reader friendly way (in terms of aesthetics and formatting) and not creating a ‘dustbin’ website (ouch!). PS- For example, it’s pretTy and not prety.

      We get most of our content from emails sent to us by the organizers. Plus, most of such content is in ‘public domain’ and is not owned by any one website; so your allegations of ‘copying’ do not hold true.

      Earlier, when we first saw some post on any other first and then put it up on Lawctopus, we did acknowledge that website. However, your website (Knowledge Steez) particularly never acknowledged content it first saw on Lawctopus and hence, we’ve stopped crediting Knowledge Steez (eye for an eye makes the whole world blind and we’d love to take an opposite position).

      Also, do remember, that Knowledge Steez is a copy-cat website of Lawctopus, and I have no qualms saying that. (Your founder used to contribute to Lawctopus before founding Knowledge Steez, which I strongly believe is doing a good job). Also, for the record, I do believe copying ideas is not a bad thing.

    • Also we refer to many other websites like letmeknow, twenty19, letsintern etc. for opportunities we are not aware of but which could be useful for law students. We think it’s our duty to do so.

    • Also, talking of ‘copying’ just check your website’s ‘advertise us’ page. Not only have you copied Lawctopus’ exact ‘pitch’ but in many cases ‘exact phrases’ and ‘advertisement offerings’ too (side banner, top banner, end of post banner).

      This is ridiculous and shameless. Your website doesn’t even have the space or the infrastructure to put a side banner ad. 😀

      PS- I can see that Knowledge Steez has no ads! Aww.

      PPS- The Flipkart ad you guys run is something you get by being an ‘affiliate’ of Flipkart and Flipkart does that for any website/blog who signs-up here:

      The commission rates are as high as 10% for books and 2.5% of phones. Am sure you guys earn like Rs. 400 every month through this. Cool stuff! Your team is really smart!
