I was searching on google to find out where my hubs rank. I saw a blog that had copied my content, no backlink no referral.
The blog does not have a contact me page to report copy right infringement too.
How do I deal with such pests?
Any advice appreciated.
while i don't put this on every hub (just on some that are dear to me), i put this at the bottom of hubs that are special to me:
This author uses Copyscape.
it might make some thief think twice before they steal your stuff. if they know you are gonna check and report them, they will probably not do it. it's kind of like those ADT signs in front of your house.
If the blog is on a blog hosting service like Blogger, Wordpress etc, you can report it to them.
If they had no adsense there is nothing you can do at all.
The joys of the internet are wonderful, its the one place copyright laws can slip for writings, pictures, and basically anything. Unless you piss of a large name, then they have the "resources" to track down anyone.
That's not true. There are actual procedures for defending your own work, which I detailed on one of my Hubs, http://hubpages.com/hub/Fine-Tuning-You … od_4175492
And unless you are actually paying to use the Copyscape service, having such a notice on your Hubs is worthless because Copyscape won't do anything about content for which they aren't being paid to protect.
i pay for mine. but i would still take action myself, such as following the link and exposing them on their site.
