Caught! What To Do About Content Stealers

Blogging Tips

Web content theft is a growing problem among bloggers. You think you’re trying to share information and put effort into constructing a post and sharing it across your social network such as Twitter, Facebook or social forums. And then someone comes along, is either a forum lurker or a blog lurker, and will steal plagiarize your ideas and words.

Plagiarism is defined in dictionaries as

… the wrongful appropriation, close imitation, or purloining and publication, of another author’s language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions, and the representation of them as one’s own original work.


Having grown up with a strong work ethic, I put a lot of effort into my blog posts.  As a librarian wannabe, I enjoy sharing content and information with my readers.

School Girls Plagiarize Blog Content Theft

Blog Content Theft

Sharing information through blog posts, and having my word-for-word content and photos ripped off by another blogger – are two different things.

My well researched content, along with all my SEO efforts, and photos that I have researched for visual eye-appeal, have recently been stolen from me.  Three times, actually, within the last two months.

I discovered that my About Me page had been plagiarized, right down to the tag lines “Been Around the Block”  and disclaimer “straight shooter, I don’t mince words” that I’ve been using since 2007.

Most recently, the other night I received a comment that a new reader, also calling herself a WAHM mom “blogger,” had used my Social Bookmarking post on her website because she thought it was so great.

Now, I figured she’d reference it, and point her readers to MY site for the full content.  But NO, she scraped my entire whole post and images and there it was in it’s glory, on her site.

Needless to say, I immediately issued a cease and desist order. This is the response I received back via email:

I had other people “welcome” my reposting of their posts.  I thought trackbacks and pingbacks were a good thing.  NO ONE even mentioned anything about it EVER being a “bad” thing.  It had previously always been taken as a compliment that someone would think enough of what they wrote to want to reuse it.

WTF? If I wanted my articles republished in their entirety and recirculated like that, I’d submit them to an article directory.

What baffles me though, is that in a recent post, this mom blogger says she’s a college graduate.  I’m asking myself, how did she ever make it through college writing a paper on her own?

I’ve also seen so many versions of my post, Alexa Toolbar Benefits For Bloggers around that it isn’t funny. Ive been promoting that post like crazy on Twitter, Facebook and forums, for everyone’s benefit. Now what’s the matter with saying, “I read it on so and so’s blog,” link to it, and then give your take on it?

It’s called a Hat Tip. As in, Hat Tip to: Insert Name Here and then link juice. Nothing’s wrong with paying it forward and giving a backlink.

I follow many authoritative expert probloggers who have been at this much longer than I have.  Among them, Lorelle On WordPress offers several thoughts on content theft, a term which can be credited to her, and which are well worth reading.

If you Self-Host on WordPress your cpanel will allow you to ban a reader’s IP address.  As soon as I discover that my content has been stolen, I ban that reader’s IP address.

Find out how you can ban an IP address from visiting your Blogger blog.

Another tactic to fend of scraping of your blog posts that you can employ is to add a simple wordpress plugin that will let you add an extra line of content to articles in your RSS feed footer, defaulting to “Post from:” and then a link back to your blog, with your blog’s name as it’s anchor text, which you can edit.

One other thing – did you know you can purchase credits on CommentLuv and have a particular post never fall off your drop-down screen? Guess what, I’ve added this post to my list of static comments.

Lastly, here’s an article about what to do about content stealers that might also guide you along should you happen to receive a “compliment” and become the victim of content copyright or image theft.

Heads-Up I also don’t hesitate to call someone out about it. Would you “Welcome” such a “Compliment” ?

Caught! What To Do About Content Stealers
By: S McIntyre

First and foremost anything you write, draw, paint and photograph is protected by copyright laws and it is known as intellectual property.

I think one time or another each of us have had something stolen from us. I, for one know I have had ad copies, blog post, contest ideas and even a portion of my home page’s content stolen from me. Certainly it’s not a good feeling and it’s not a considered a compliment or flattery in any way, shape or form! It’s pathetic and downright wrong on so many levels.

Do they think they can get away with it? Do they think it’s okay? Just because it’s on the Internet it doesn’t mean it’s a free-for-all. To understand copyright laws, visit http://www.copyright.gov/

What can you do when you find your content taken without your permission?

When they steal an ad copy, ask them to remove it. Report it to the website administrator where you found your stolen work. Most administrators will not tolerate this kind of behaviour.

When they steal an article, let them know you are the original author and ask them to credit the work with your resource box or have them remove the plagiarized work immediately.

When they steal your website’s content, notify them via email with a cease and desist order. You can Google for a sample of a cease and desist order letter. If they fail to respond or fail to remove the copied content within the timeframe you presented, contact their web hosting company and let them know of the situation. You can also contact their advertisers and let them know their ads are shown on a site containing copied/stolen content. If all fails, it’s time to report the offending site to Google and other search engines.

To prove you are the owner of the stolen work start searching through Google and screen capture the results from a cached file. You can use screen capturing software or use the “Print Screen” key on your keyboard and then copy it to Paint.

Let it be known, people who resort to these tactics really don’t belong online. Their lack of credibility and integrity will not get them far and they will fail.

  1. This has been a huge problem for me. And I have to admit that after getting into several wars of words with other bloggers over it, I’ve just about given up. Thanks for your tips. They have given me the inspiration to continue the fight.

  2. I have had to tell sites I will report to Google and I have also found that ezine is really quick about taking down and removing publishing rights to people who steal stuff.

  3. I think this is a serious violation. We all work hard on our posts and to copy and paste is insulting. Although you mentioned blocking an IP address; I find this idea to be a bit flawed. Anyone can refresh/change their IP address easily or use a different computer. Or even their smartphone!

    A possible alternative would be to disable right clicking or copying via a script in your HTML.

    Sorry that this has happened to you but I appreciate your candor and alerting us new to the blogging (and veterans) that this has been going on behind the scenes.

    I can tell that you are a blogger with integrity because others (possibly myself included) would name names!

    • Rachael – Yes, banning IPs can get tricky, as from my links it states there’s a difference between static IP address and non-static IP addresses. However I was quick to ban the last IP address, and she was quick enough to find out and even said I had the audacity to ban her.

      “But you actually blocked me from your site too? I am not a bad person, not that you know that. I am a mom…”

      Duhh, so what you’re a mom? That’s supposed to establish some comradery between us? I think not.

  4. I’ve had my content plagiarized twice, by the same person. I didn’t take it as a compliment. I regarded it as theft and told her so. Her anger at my obvious rudeness at demanding removal was only compounded by her utter lack of knowledge about what was the appropriate way to cite someone else’s words.

    I made screen shots of her post, with dates, as well as mine – showing her content was published well after mine.

    It’s difficult to catch plagiarizers because of the enormity of the Internet, but Google Alerts and services such as CopeScape are useful tools.

    Because of my serial thief, I posted a very detailed copyright notice on my blog’s homepage. It won’t necessarily stop anyone from stealing content, but it does explicitly establish my ownership.

    • Yes Tara, Google Alerts are always a good idea on content you want to protect. I’ll have to check into CopeScape. Some experts even go as far as saying to achael – Yes, banning IPs can get tricky, as from my links it states there’s a difference between static IP address and non-static IP addresses. However I was quick to ban the last IP address, and she was quick enough to find out and even said I had the audacity to ban her.

      “But you actually blocked me from your site too? I am not a bad person, not that you know that. I am a mom…”

  5. I went through this for about 6 months. I had a lady that was stealing everything from me. She copied my entire media kit which I had paid someone to write up and design from me and she even copied my stats! Even after my contacting her with take down notices she still for a long time kept taking my content and it got so bad I had to put copyright blocks on my blog and then she would not just copy and paste but also type it out word for word. I couldn’t believe that someone would go to such great lengths.
    I finally got it taken care of but gosh it is just awful that people do things like this. If I find something that is so awesome I have to share it on my blog I always contact the blogger first and ask permission and then I also always reference it back to where it originally came from.

    • Exactly Sheri – I will put perhaps a paragraph indented, in quotes, and a “Hat Tip” link back to the site, or reference the actual blogger’s post.

      As for your media kit – I too had mine up for awhile but have since removed it. No sense in having the world copy it – some people are too lazy or unimaginative to develop their own.

      I have quite a few Google Alerts set up now.

  6. Wow! I’m so sorry your blog content has been stolen! How would I find out if mine has been stolen? I have google alerts set up fro when my blog gets into highlights, but it definitely won’t let you know if you your stuff is being stolen.

    Thanks for this informative post. I hope it doesn’t happen to you again!

    • Hi Heather – I have Google Alerts set up for keywords, and I also subscribe via RSS reader to about 1K blogs. I spend quite a bit of time on the ‘net, and twitter, FB, and can generally tell from a title what the post is about. Sometimes it’s by chance, or a comment, or a conversation going on.

      I’m not aware though of Google & Highlights, and would appreciate if you could let me know how to set that up!
      Moomettes would like you to read..Blogging Resource Tips and TechniquesMy Profile

      • Oh I’m sorry, I just meant I have google alerts set up for my blog, so if someone else references my blog I know, but it doesn’t tell you about content being stolen, because most likely no one would mention your blog name in a stolen post. But I will now set up google alerts for keywords. I have my blog copyright protected, but I wonder if that really does anything all…..

  7. This is so sad to me. As someone that reveres the written word, plagiarizers make me want to smack them! I can’t imagine ever being so low as to claim someone else’s words as my own. I think you learn pretty early on in English class how to cite and give credit to sources. How lame are these people that they can’t say- I read something great that I would like to share with you and here is where you can find the wonderful original and it’s author?! I have been reading blogs for a while now (I love it!) and just started my own, but it is more as a way to keep myself accountable for journaling, not a way to gather an audience or make money (though I totally respect and appreciate all the professional bloggers out there). Still, I once saw an article that I found very thought provoking and that I wanted to comment on and I went to all the trouble to cite the source, give credit and leave links to the original. Now, I have 1 follower, 1!! I doubt they would have known if I had swiped someone else’s work, but it is not something I could ever sink to. Shame on those uncreative, uninspired and down-right lazy slobs who do!!

    • April – Thanks for stressing the most basic facts that we learned in school – the importance of citations and referencing.

      Whether one is a casual blogger, or a pro blogger, there is still an unwritten decorum among writers that must be followed. Some bloggers learn it quickly; some learn it the hard way.

      Come back and leave the link to your blog! I have Comment Luv installed and would luv to visit!

  8. Cindi, This was a huge topic at Type-A Mom Con this year. The main answer was give them 24 hrs to take down your post and invoice them your going rate for a paid post with appropriate links back to your site. Most will remove the post so they don’t have to pay but some will pay. Don’t back down. You must protect your hard work>

  10. Cindi,

    Thank you so much for posting my article here. There are just way too many people who steal copyrighted material and pass it as their own and then blame it on someone else (like a ghostwriter) or plead their ignorance. It just doesn’t fly and it’s even more insulting.

    It’s really difficult if someone steals your content and you can’t find a way to contact them when their blog is hosted on a free platform. I don’t know how long Blogger or WordPress.com would take to get back to you. In these cases I leave it because I don’t have time to waste not building my business. It takes so much energy that I rather put it in somewhere that is more productive and rewarding.

    I’m open to suggestions if anyone knows of way to deal with cases as mentioned above.

    For all those content stealers…watch out. We’re not going to let it slide.

  11. Wow! I’ve only been blogging a little over a year and as far as I know, never been plagiarized. It actually never occurred to me, since I am still learning so much. I appreciate you taking the time to let us know ways to protect our content. Even the comments here made me more aware of how widespread the problem is. Thanks so much for the information.

  12. I was a victim of stolen blog content and on my personal blog, nonetheless. It amazes me that people who cannot come up with their own original content want to be bloggers. It’s one thing to be inspired by another blogger. It’s another thing to actually just copy and paste from their blog. I cant even begin to imagine why anyone would be stupid enough to think that would be okay.

  13. Here from Mom Spark! You have some great information here. I bookmarked some of he links you shared, and am going to look into installing the plugins to my blog. Thanks so much for sharing!

  14. Wow….a lot of different things to think about! Thank you for that.

    But I have to ask…how did you get that photo of the girls in a classroom setting? Did you set that up for this post alone, or was it just a coincidence that if fit so aptly?

    Also, I think one of the big issues with this is that as wrong as it is it is so hard to penalize or prosecute for two reasons. One being that it usually crosses state lines and that becomes a whole different ball of wax. Ttwo is that in my experience, law enforcement’s attitude (which I can understand to a great extent when I’m not on the side of being stolen from) is that there are plenty of bigger fish to fry.

  15. TERRIFIC POST!!! And judging by all the comments here, I’d say you hit a nerve. There is NO excuse for plagiarism, none. People who say they “didn’t know” seem to me to be very disingenuous.

    Thanks for linking to my post (TheOlderGeek). WordPress users have it easy, but Blogger bloggers have had few choices for content management.

  18. Hello Won – Many photos are available on sites such as creativecommons dot org if you search for keyword terms. I’ve used that particular photo in the past here.

    The majority of bloggers I know aren’t about to prosecute anyone as it’s too cost prohibitive. Those who will prosecute are people who’s images are used commercially – for retail purposes. I’ve been an affiliate in the past for a mineral makeup online site, and the gal who owned it hunted down every single photo of her product line that would be stolen, and employed a legal team to follow through and assure that the photos were removed from non-affiliate sites.

  20. WOW – this is unbelievable that a “college grad” would do that. I also had my PR Friendly page stolen word for word (a few sentences were deleted) and format for format! I took it down too and now offer it to companies as requested. I asked the person to please revise their page to reflect their own thoughts and ideas, which in retrospect was way too nice, and also I have been too chicken to even check back to see if they did so b/c I know I will get mad if they didn’t! :)
    I love how you also included an article by another author b/c this shows the APPROPRIATE way to use someone else’s writing on your blog! Instead of “Surprise!!, I liked your work so much I stole it without informing you and, wow, now you know how great your writing is b/c you just discovered it on my blog without a mention of your name!” (I am facetious of course!).

    A great post and this needs to be discussed MORE OFTEN!! :)

  21. It’s like the dirty family secret of the blog world, content scrapers and content stealers scraping this and copying that to try to get a few clicks on some adsense blocks so they can rub together two pennies and say they work from home on the internet. Drives me mad just thinking about it.

    Honestly, I try not to think about it, but when it happens so blatantly it’s hard not to notice, especially if you have any google alerts set up to notify you of certain things relating to your own site. It just pops up right there in your email in the morning and makes you wish you had hit the snooze button one more time before settling in to do some work.

    Thank you for this post and the shared article on content theft, this is really something that needs to be discussed more often and more openly, right out in front!

  23. Hi Cindi,

    As you know from our chats I have a little different take on the “content stealing” issue. The ones that blatantly take anything we write and give no attribution or credit I have no empathy for as that is obviously just wrong not to mention unethical.

    There are other sites, though, that are aggregators of content on particular subjects. They give attribution and often publish entire blog posts complete with links, images and sometimes even comments. There is an upside to those as they provide additional links to your site and to every site you thought enough of to link to from your post. (That is also how you’ll know they republished your content – you’ll see trackbacks from all the links in your post that are in your own blog.)

    The benefits are most likely temporary as they are likely to be filtered out by the search engines pretty quickly; however, you can see traffic coming in from that type of site and pick up new readers and subscribers in that way.

    There are two ways of looking at what we create. Some feel we should own and control it or even make others pay to see it. Others see the benefit is freely sharing content to reach a greater audience and grow our blogs. Neither is inherently “right” or “wrong” – they are simply a decision about the principles we each believe in.

    No matter which of those two camps you are in, the journalistic standard of “fair use” should be fine with any blogger. Under fair use we can quote SMALL amounts of someone else’s content – a few sentences or a paragraph or maybe more if it is a long work. Hopefully no one will object to that.

  24. I experience this from time to time with people who are in the same direct sales company as I am. They just assume they can copy my original product descriptions, tips and/or sales copy. I had to issue two take down notices last month, one responded with a very childish reply that I must have copied them and if I had any of their family pictures on my blog…. ??? However they removed my sales copy and it was only one of two posts they had on their blog. The other one never responded so I reported them to company they posted their ad with stolen content with. It was promptly removed.

    This is certainly a topic new bloggers need to be made aware of.

  25. I’ve gone through this too. Usually mine are scrapers that have their sites set up to take the whole post and repost it. Drives me crazy. I send a cease and desist and it’s usually taken down with or without an apology. There’s this too – copyscape.com – that’s how I’ve found mine.

  26. I just googled a paragraph from the post of yours that was stolen. Actually I googled two paragraphs and came up with the same blog twice. I think she has removed it, if I came across the correct blog. She’s still using other’s content but looks like she’s crediting the author.

    She’s probably trying to be something she’s not. Some people write, some don’t. I have more blog posts ideas run through my mind daily than I have time to post. Maybe she should stick to being in the audience.

  27. I had a blogger steal all my buttons. The ones I paid to have made specifically for my site and if you saw them they were recognizable. The blogger flipped out on me too and stated they weren’t MINE and she could use them if she wanted too. I posted about it and she got mean. She removed them but she was no newbie and she definitely should have known better.

  28. Very interesting article. Is it stealing if you reference the original blogger who wrote the piece? I guess you are talking about pieces that have no reference to the original site.

  29. Wow! Knock on wood, I’ve never discovered one of my posts on another person’s blog. Then again, I do mainly reviews and giveaways, so there’s no real need to copy my stuff. However, if someone did take one of my posts I’d be really mad and I would call them out on it.

  32. I have had two situations….

    1) working with an online networking group someone copied and pasted my content, including the picture, and posted it on their site and then in the post said “my friend Crystal posted this on her site today”…. and the content followed. My husband suggested I take it as a compliment.

    2) Then, a few months ago I did a post about re-purposing happy meal toys. The next week a pretty well known blogger (in her niche) posted a very very similar post about the same topic with some of the same tips I gave. She did not do it on her blog, she did it on a blog she is a paid contributor for. I was shocked. I left a comment that said “Wow, great minds must think alike. I just covered this same topic last week- here is a link to my post.” I never heard anything back from her but at least the company paying her to do the post knows she is not crediting people for the ideas she might be borrowing.

    Karma, baby!

  37. Thanks so much for this helpful info. I’m about to start a blog of my own, in which I would like to included references to other blog articles I find that I think my readers would be interested in. It’s good to know that posts, links/ref’s to the other blogs is an acceptable practice as long as it’s done right. As they say credit where credit is due. I also believe this practice of referencing other blogs is a good practice to spread the word about all the great blogs that are out there on the web.

  39. I’ve actually had a blogger steal some of my buttons before. I knew it was mine because I made it.
    I would have given it to her if she would have asked. I had to ask her numerous times about it. She never responded but she did eventually take it down.
    I have no problem with people using my content as long as they don’t claim it as theirs and they link back to me.
