Is “Cricket” stealing your genealogy blog content? I would recommend that you find out. I filed a DMCA complaint against this blogger today through Google/Blogger. This person has been taking entire posts wholesale and representing them as his/her own work. While there is a link to the “source” for the material, it is not considered acceptable practice in blogging to post an entire blog post written by someone else. Quotations and even block quotations are considered appropriate, but what this person is doing is wrong, and he/she could be doing it to you. Go see at http://familyhistoryideas.blogspot.com/. Don’t support this person’s efforts by clicking on ad content or by linking to him/her unless you use the rel=”nofollow” tag. If your content is being stolen, I urge you to protect your work by filing a complaint. Here’s how: Digital Millennium Copyright Act on Blogger.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if this post is stolen, too?
