Just a quick follow-up post regarding the above topic that I blogged about in the beginning of August.
I found a great article from Narayanan Aier on his Dreamy World blog which he has broken up into three parts:
- Dealing with content theft (Part 1)
- Dealing with content theft (Part 2)
- Dealing with content theft (Part 3)
There’s also an official Stolen Content blog maintained by Alex Shiels from Automattic (the people behind the WordPress blogging system). Here you can search for a domain you suspect having stolen your content and if it’s been noted before by someone else you’ll find information about whom to contact as well as sample “Cease and Desist“ letters to use.
Remember, it doesn’t matter if it’s a rant, a comment or simply your thoughts – if you wrote it, it’s yours and no one else has the right to re-use it without your express permission.
Let’s fight back and ensure our content stays ours!
