I didn't source this from that site, but they, like many other sites included "Mad Jack" in lists, compilations ect...I found the pic/story on one site and I liked it, so I did a google on the man and got two more pictures and a wiki page. I then compiled it all together in a post. Nothing was original, other than the editing, but also nothing was stolen or copyrighted by anyone. It is what we do here. We give you stuff to read, think about, talk about and argue about. Just because my name is on the post, doesn`t mean I am seeking credit for the original content. The majority of everything that is posted on IAB is called aggregate content.
We do post Original content, but rarely. Look at Servo355`s stuff. That is an example of original content that members do here. We also do pic and gif compilations, and soon we will be doing original videos on Youtube as well.

"if you're gonna copy someone`s work, don`t plagiarize: honour their work by at least sourcing them:
Original cracked article. It`s entry no 3"
That would assume that the people who own IAB, don`t also own the material posted at cracked.com.
However, they do.
Look at the bottom of this page and you`ll see that the copyright is for Demand Media inc., now go and view an article on cracked and look at the end for the copyright holder.....and Dada!, it`s Demand Media Inc.
No copyright theft or plagiarism when you own both sites.
