Letter to the editor: New paper in NOTL shows imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

SUBMITTED BY WILLIAM L. COCHRANE SR.
OPINION

If “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” the staff of The Lake Report should be walking on air with puffed up egos and pride.

To have your business model copied in its entirety by the staff of the failed publication which created the void which you have so capably filled speaks volumes. That these people would be among your first employees such that they could watch and poach your ideas up close and endeavour to copy with a second class product is a true compliment to your entrepreneurial initiative — the theft of intellectual property should not be rewarded.

I and many whom I know compliment and salute your endeavour. May The Lake Report succeed beyond your wildest expectations.

P.S. I have asked my post office to classify your competitor as junk mail and not to deliver it to my PO Box.
