It was just a matter of time before my blog became a target too.

Some punk-ass wanna-be dude has stolen my 5 Google Adsense Secrets, Tips and Tricks article and shamesly copied it on his blog, WORD BY WORD. You have some images below:

Copied article Copied article 2

No link to my blog, no nothing (not that that would make it ok).

He even left the image references to my blog so that’s how I found out about this.

if you want to discover if someone copy content from your blog just use this :

someone got to my site, when i use some definition from wikipedia and said that i can not copy from wikipedia, he was wrong anyway, because i can copy with some conditions.

use this site and you’ll be surpriesed (if you did not use it till yet)

I know that tool for 6 months or more ..

It’s only good if the pages are indexed. Which is a BIG limitation.

Hate to this this happen – but you should take advantage of him hotlinking to your images.

That’s a pretty solid case of copyright infringement you have there.

I wouldn’t doubt for a second that the “higher ups” would’nt do anything about this.

Recently I had a challenge with Technorati that ended on a positive note. Basically, there was this guy claiming that a blog of mine was actually his. Imagine the fire that arises when you get a Google alert saying XXXX’s “claimed blogs” and your blog is on that person’s list.

The people over at Technorati quickly resolved (about a week) the whole thing and I was able to COMPLETE the claiming of that blog. A blog that has 181 other BLOGS that link to it (w/no blogroll).

Nice place you have here. I will send a friendly hello after I write up something and link here.
