A new section has appeared on the official Gars Telecom web site www.garstelecom.com — “The board of the Shame” in which the all cases of the ideas and text borrowing by the other companies will be placed. Nowadays among pirates are little-sized telecom-carriers of Moscow and Saint-Petersburg.

The idea to create this section was prompted by Gars Telecom counteragents out of our corporate clients and developers who received from time to time the clones of business proposals from different telecom-carriers. “It is entirely obscured why ‘clone specialists’ don’t think that borrowed ideas had been presented to clients before, — tells Ruslan Aliev, Gars Telecom Development Director”.

“As a matter of a fact, using our ideas and texts without any changes by the other telecom-market participants shows the level of ideas acceptance and texts acceptance, — concerns Michael Sergeev, Gars Telecom Marketing Director, — but we are sure that fair competition doesn’t allow opened ideas piracy. Paradoxically that field colleagues do not try to work with text to disguise the fact of borrowing”.

It is obvious that piracy problem concerns not only telecom-market. However, nobody from Gars Telecom met so many cases of the insolent content borrowing. “The first carrier caught on piracy yet in 2004 was Westcall, — recalls Michael Sergeev. Nowadays list of ‘pirates’ expanded and the new section on the site became the logical continuing”. In the fresh “clip” of pirates are Moscow and Saint-Petersburg carriers — Rosnet (Aerocom), Borodino-telecom, “Clever Com”, Avelcom, PM-Group.

“Not all the companies are eager to invest in human resources and do not have potential to gather extraordinary people with who has ability to imagine and realize nontrivial business solutions, — tells Pavel Gorenkov, Gars Telecom CEO. — While talentocracy is one out of the elements of Gars Telecom philosophy. However, our ideas are used in commercial aims of help other companies to earn money, that is why we decided to launch ‘The board of the shame’ in which the cases of the borrowing should be placed”.

In Gars Telecom do not expect that owing to the “The board of the Shame” scissors work will stop. However, wide business community will obtain an opportunity to be familiar who and how steels content.
