Facing potential plagerism problem

    Hi all, I found out that my articles appear in http://lovershipadvice.info/2009/03/what-is-love/
    without my permission and without acknowledging me as the author.  Is this considered plagerism?  Without acknowledging author, anyone can just cut and paste and claim authorship.

    Please advise me, how shall I deal with this?

      You need to send the site a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) take down notice informing them you are the original author. Sen them links to your original material and the plagiarised material.

      Search for DMCA take down notice - how to write in google and you'll find plenty of help.

        Hi, that website claims to be powered by Wordpress (RSS), and has more than 500 articles, all without acknowledgment of authorship.
        I can find nothing about the site owner, no email address, no contact us detail.
        The "about" just says that "this is an example of Wordpress"
        So how, should I inform Wordpress instead?

          You can either go directly to Wordpress, or you can use a Whois tool.

          http://www.domaintools.com/

          Type the domain into the search box at the top and it should tell you the details.

          Lovershipadvice.info says it's prtected by WHOisGuard, which means they're deliberatly blocking the Whois search.

          Go directly to Wordpress, they'll remove the article, and maybe the site.
