A commercial website in Turkey is continiously copying Rail Turkey’s posts in spite of our many attemps (5 posts are copied until now, 3 of them are deleted by our attemps). We managed to stop unauthorised material in its USA-hosted websites. Unfortunately, it’s not so quick to do same in Turkey. The sad thing is that, the owner of this website is a railway professional too.
Rail Turkey continued its growth in May as well, and visited more than 8500 times in May.
We wish all Rail Turkey readers a pleasent month.
