Of course I got mad, because It’s not the first time I’ve been ripped. I have been ripped before with designs, layouts, content, copyrighted material, images etc. It’s just that I can’t bare to see plagiarism anymore and I am pissed of at those people that get other’s hard work.
Since Blogger is in the middle of my problem, I said: Hey, this will be a breeze. I’ll jsut e-mail them and they’ll surely help with the removal of that blog/post with my copyrighted content.
Well NO.. It’s not like that. Blogger will not help me at all. Watch the discussions below, and draw your own conclusions:
1. My initial e-mail:
Please take appropiate measures so that this blog is taken down, and never
before allowed to have any other blog at Blogger:
He STOLE a whole article of mine. There were about 80 comments on his
page, from people swearing him about his stealing :
Google cache (because he removed the comments some days ago).
Please do something about it. Thanks.
2. Blogger’s response:
Thank you for your note. Blogger is a provider of content creation tools,
not a mediator of that content. We allow our users to create blogs, but we
don’t make any claims about the content of these pages. In cases where
contact information for the author is listed on the page, we recommend
working directly with this person to have this information removed or
The Blogger Team
3. My second e-mail
So Blogger encourages plagiarism and does nothing to protect the ones beeing plagiated, but tells me to contact the owner and resolve this with him ?
The owner doesn’t give a damn about it. If you would’ve taken 1 minute from your time to actually read the page I gave you with the Google cache, you would’ve realised that.
It’s always nice to see this. And it’s good to know for the future.
4. Blogger’s position on plagiarism done by their members
Based on our policies regarding content removal, we are unable to remove
the content in question. We apologize that we cannot assist you further at
The Blogger Team
My thoughts on this issue
I actually don’t advise any of you to e-mail them about any Blogger.com blog stealing your content. The Blogger.com blogs network is a plagiarism enabled network, they are unable to remove stolen content (come on people…..) and the only practical thing you can do, is watch your content beeing ripped off.
And if I think of the fact that this guy stole my article, and left the images hotlinked to my blog, it makes my sick. I mean how more stupid than that can you be ?
Moreover when I contacted them (I did sent them e-mails in the past days too as well as posted on their Blogger help group) I didn’t knew what freakin’ option to choose at their contact form. They address everything BUT plagiarism and security issues.
