Have you ever found that your website copy has been plagiarized?
About once a month I check out Copyscape that allows me to run a search on some key pages of my site. Almost every month I find someone new who has grabbed some or all of my home page content and used it for their own.
In some cases I’ve emailed the company. Sometimes they take it down, other times they don’t.
I’ve also blogged about some of them. Some were shamed into taking the content donw.
I’ve even called one guy who told me I should be flattered. (I believe it’s imitation, and not plagiarism that’s supposed to make me feel flattered, but whatever.)
How would you handle it?
