May I please ask you to…

On 1 May, 2007 by Carol

Update

One of my entire entries (Best Freeware ) has been copied and pasted into this blog without my permission : lvwenshi.blogspot.com .

I left a message and ask the individual to remove the entry and so my friend David did.

All he did was remove our comments and just ignore the request.

Does anyone have any idea how to deal with content theft?


…ask my permission when you decide to copy and paste an entire entry from my blog into your blog?

To make this short….No! You can\’t copy and paste it as it is your own. You don\’t have my permission to do so.

You can take a parahraph of it though, and link it back to my entry…

Please, have some respect!

  • Lmao!
    That is cruel, but it doesn’t kick how i want it.

    Let’s see if this is crueler….

    I send them a warning message to ask them to take down or link back to my blog, then wait for the answer and if it isn’t a satisfying one, i will post their blog’s name up, along with screenshot of their web site , plus a copy of the e-mail they just sent back.

    Would that work?

  • I also have a fun idea, just ’cause it’s sorta cruel if it’s done correctly.

    Include a picture in each post that is (cc) yours, and if the bad guys “lift” the post with the graphic still pointed to your site..

    …change the graphic to uh… “something else…”

    I had someone using my domain’s root graphic for a forum avatar, but it stopped when I changed the file (gecko.jpg) to an 800×600 “Don’t hotlink other people’s graphics” image…

    Fun.

    Oh, and comments can only be made on posts that have been put up in the last two weeks (and my spam is pretty much zero).

  • Oh! Well, it was a list of shame that i was thinking about, but i need to send a warning to the people first and then wait for their reaction…
    The people who took the entry with no link back.

  • Still waiting for your brilliant idea 😉

  • Ajay, i think i have a solution for all this, because i have discovered other web sites that took that entry and they didn’t put any link back nor anything else.

    I will announce something today or tomorrow.
    It may not be a brilliant idea, but i will enjoy it.

  • Carol, you will need to send a DMCA notice to Google via snail mail or fax with your post and the copied post…
    It’s a slow process, but they take it seriously

  • Thanks Gecko.
    I’ve seen Lorelle’s entry a while back and i didn’t thought i would have to go through is step by step.

    It’s a shame that people want to gain traffic or anything else like that.

    About the Common license…it seems like a good idea. I will look into it.

    BTW, i love your blog. It’s just….I couldn’t post a comment.

  • I’ve had this happen too, and it was obviously done due to a keyword, and pulled from an RSS on my site. I was reading a little of this, the other day:

    http://lorelle.wordpress.com/2006/04/10/what-do-you-do-when-someone-steals-your-content/

    and it looks like it’s got everything covered. The thing I found most annoying was that my entire post was being lifted because ONE WORD happened to match their RSS filter. Very annoying. Also annoying because now I know that something I wrote is going to bring people into a loop of GoogleAdsense stuff.

    I feel for ya, I really do.

    Maybe a creative commons license on all posts from this point forward (make sure it’s included in your RSS feeds, too).

    Of course, it’s not like *I* do this myself right now, either. (whoops).
