Great excuse for copying

    I've had Md dot newszapforums dot com  copy when of my hubs in full. When challenged, he came up with a novel excuse:

    Your site has a section where readers can link to the page (under "share this page"; it states "paste the URL or HTML from below into your website, blog, email, comment or hub:") 

    Gotta give him credit for trying..  Strange concept of "below", but creative.

        I'll file a DMCA with his ISP if he continues this crap.

    I once had a woman copy an entire website that I managed. When I confronted her, she blithely said, "Well, you don't own the Internet, Lisa!" smile

    'Why you enabled feed on your site ? " -I got this reply from plenty of thieves.

    I just found out I had a Football hub copied when I checked my account and HP had the copywrite symbol in place. I followed the link and finally found a way to contact the site. They had no way to contact the writer.

    HP notes "removed", but...it is still there! I e-mailed the site with the DMCA report that HP had available. Will see if it is removed or then I will go for the Adsense account.

    The person didn't even try to change anything...just a complete copy of the page!!!

    The site was rootzoo.com

    There is "was" some buzz that Google is shaping to stomp down hard on plagiarised content ... will they?
