Alert! Oz Rudd steals scripts - posted by Don

“Oz Rudd” has been caught trying to pass off a number of scripts from the SimplyScripts Unproduced section of the site as his own. If anyone reading this is working with the above named individual on a script or a production, please be aware that you could be working with someone who has plagiarized the script from SimplyScripts.

To be clear, Oz Rudd stole the scripts and merely replaced the writer’s name with his own. He is passing them off as his own work, typos and all.

I’ve removed “Oz Rudd’s” real name since there apparently an “internet sleuth” who is going around writing nasty letters to anyone has “Oz Rudd’s” real name. Not cool.
