If you are reading this article on a site that is not http://taugrim.com, you’re reading it from a spam scraping site, so please click here to read the article on my blog. Thanks, Taugrim.
Scraping sites have been stealing my content by posting it verbatim on their sites; it’s annoying that they are trying to benefit from my content. So I’m posting this article as a test to see which of those scraping sites are automatically copying whatever I post on my blog (taugrim.com), or if they have humans actually making a decision in terms of what to post.
To anyone who is posting my articles here on another site: you do not have my permission to do so, all of the content here is copyrighted by me all rights reserved.
Are you using copyscape.com?
Check it reguarly, you are 100% correct, it is copyright infringement.
Doing some searching myself, its look bot-like.
How do you copyright your blog? Just post the “copyright 2010 ‘name’ ” and that’s it or are you registered somewhere?
How do i find out if my posts are being threaded to some trash site, with lowlife developers and no moral integrity for honest bloggers.
Yes, you should have a copyright notice visible on your articles. You can’t register per se.
You already have a Copyscape link on your site. I hadn’t heard of it until Nathan mentioned it.
Here’s a good read on content theft and what to do about it:
One word: pathetic
Good news on this front. I sent a Notice of Infringement to the person who runs that web site and his hosting provider, and he responded today and he’s taking my site off their spider.
Well done, red-handed I may say. Get on to it…I would be PISSED.
We had that issue as well :( And you don’t need to “do” anything, your blog is yours ;)
We put up the Copyscape thing and also we ran with a wordpress setup so we added Bad Behavior plugin: http://www.bad-behavior.ioerror.us/
Wow, LOL they fail.
