An online war has broken out on a social networking (Face book) site between the students of Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT-B) and VIT University, Chennai, over the proprietary rights of a page that were put up by the IITians 48 hours ago. The page for IIT Tips, which aimed at providing some welcome relief to IITians, became the bone of contention after VITians accused the former of plagiarizing, an idea, which they started nearly six months before. The IIT Tips page, which was launched about 48 hours ago, received nearly 6,400 likes in the first 24 hours itself as existing and former IITian’s welcomed the initiative.
However, all hell broke loose when a VITians visited the page. The VITian accused the administrator of the page for copying their “logo” and format of the tips. His accusation met with snide comments from IITians who were hurt by his claims. As comments turned to abuses, the administrator decided to shut out the VITian and the fracas ended. Plagiarism not with standing, the page got 9,000 likes on the second day and the number has been increasing. “I was expecting 1,000 likes on the first day, but 1,890 in 12 hours is flattering,” the administrator said. When contacted the VITian said; while he was not the administrator of the VIT Tips page on Facebook, he felt that the least was expected from the most sought after IITians in India “was to be original”.
