Scam Alert- Blatant Violations of Copyrights!
As with all else, there is the flipside of being on the World Wide Web and being the best at what you do, and that is the blatant disregard of ownership of / rights to content. Gemstoneuniverse provides patrons with not only top of the line products and services but also provides in-depth knowledge about everything that falls in the ambit of gem therapy and planetary gemology.
However it has come to our notice that there are sites such http://www.sriprasadbros.webs.com
, who have unscrupulously copied entire pages copyrighted content, picture and what have you to their site. We would like you to know that gemstone universe operates out of the singular office premises at Bangalore in India. No other website/ person/ agent/ franchisee has the authorization or the rights to sell products using our name or on behalf of Gemstone Universe.
We shall not be responsible for any dealing made by people with such fraudulent parties. We request you to exercise caution and to let us know if you come across any such site/ individual, so that they can be brought to book. Gemstone Universe will take legal action against such violations.
It is a request to you dear patrons to help us fight such unethical elements. Knowledge of sacred Gemology is available to only a select few and application of it is even rarer. Do let us know if you find our content copied by others. This will go in a long way towards helping planetary gemology and keep unethical people for cheating others and more importantly prevent unethical people with no knowledge from hurting others.
Issued in Public Interest!
Updates on such scamsters will keep appearing here with date tags and notes:
Update 10th March 2014
This indiviual just copies images copyrighted by Gemstoneuniverse that are certified intellectual property of Gemstoneuniverse, does a bad photoshop job by covering Gemstoneuniverse logo with ludicrous colours and posts on his facebook page as his own.
23rd April 2011
A gracious patron sent a link to another website which has copied our content. No contact details given on the website except for a online contact form:
Thank You dear Patron you have been an awesome resource for us and millions of others.
Update 29th June 2011
Today we received a link that goes a bit further than just a blatant violation of copyrights. Look at the blog link of an individual who goes by the Name Rishi Goldsmith:
This blog copies Guruji Shrii Arnav defining work Do Gems work- No they don’t for 90% of the people. A classic piece of work that has touched countless lives in a positive manner and led to profound changes in the lives of the people worldwide!
Leave alone the fact that he does not mention that this work does not belong to him he has put it as its own , he is happy go lucky in making Gem recommendations?
No it’s not weird or distasteful. It makes one shudder to think that what kind of Gem recommendation this individual would Â actually be churning out with borrowed information with the only contribution being a paste job.
The horror stories wherein Gems lead to medical conditions happen because of such distasteful things. Put your own life at risk but not the lives of others.
Update on 22 December 2012
The entire Gemstoneuniverse copyrighted content has been copied including the pictures
Be careful of such characters. They are abundant.
Thank You gracious patron!. You are a light worker!

This is so wrong of others to steal content. You may complain to webs.com regarding this and I’m sure they will do something about it.
I think there is some place in Google that you can also complain so that Google penalizes these crooks.
This is absolute nonsense. This thing should be reported to police and you should file a lawsuit. I am sharing this on my Facebook. Thank you to the patron who reported this.Please send a message to Google. They shall take care of violation as well as privacy issues.
Thanks for this alert. Sharing this.
