Has anyone experienced this: Two local papers are reading my articles and stealing my topics. I have offered to write, or freelance for them, but they only hire their relatives. Is this legal? I know my articles are better, I have a degree and have been writing for years. What would you do?
I understand your question in the way that the 2 local papers do NOT copy your text and/or headlines. What they do is that they get inspired by your "topic" and then, having read your article, then they write their own article on the same matter (but with other words, and maybe even another conclusion).
Well, this isn't illegal.
How do you publish your articles? And do you write "followups" in which you "debate" the topic, and at the same time make it clear that you were the first to write about the topic.
PS: IF they copy your text, then you can sue them!

I discovered today that the German Wikipedia (Wikiversity) stole one of my articles so you may want to check and see if they have any of your work. The aggravating thing is that I have a Google Alert set up for that story but was never notified about this. I sent Wikiversity an email and received a...
