A step in the right direction from google blogger/blogspot.
About once a month, I spend a day tracking down work that has been copied and getting it removed, or a backlink or the adsense account closed.
Today is the day. But there is an interesting new addition to the blogger DMCA complaints page:
http://www.google.com/support/blogger/b … nfringment
You can now complain about a site that is being linked to from blogger. It is intended for those people who make a blogger blog and then link to another site. Like a lot of blogger blogs, they exist only to promote another site.
I have made my first complaints about blogger blogs linking to sites that use adsense. We shall see. If enough people start doing this, perhaps the linked-to site will get stopped also?
but what if a hubber is doing the same for his/her own hubs?
For example creating brief descriptive blogs on blogger for promoting our own hubs.
