    I found that one of the famous company coping articles from Ezine and then published it on their website.
    They are publishing articles with modification. They are also adding their website links on author bio and articles content.
    I want to know your opinion. What you think, please post your comment, it?s right or wrong.

    As long as they use a "By line" they can't get in trouble for it. So if you give credit to the author then you're good.

    All depends on if they are skrewing you over - and how much they are modifying them. If they are really doing decent re-write there is jack shit you can do.

    If only slight mods then contact ezine and explain to them...sometimes they will send out to owner as it is against their TOS...

    Thousands of onliners scrape and rewite from there but most are rewritten well...

    On a moral basis it might be considered wrong but most people simply don't care as mentioned above the majority of marketers just scrape and rewrite. I'd say more than 90% of the stuff online as a whole is just rehashed $hit.

    They are doing nothing, just copied article and add their website link in content and author bio and published it. If you are publishing seo, internet marketing on online marketing articles on ezinearticles.com then you article is also copied by the company.

    You can check it here: http://www.topseos.com/articles

    Do something to stop these thing in future. It's time to take action. I have started posting about this company in all seo forums. If you have any idea, you can also try it.

    Topseos seems to be free for the public, most of what is on there could had just been listed by the original author and feed into the other article sides.. Meaing it's the publics content, people who frequent topseos.

    If you spent more time on the forum. Rather than creating a account just to post this, then you would know this is how a lot of people roll. Theres content spînnérs in most sections you look at. Copying is wrong and there no sidestepping it, but you're going to have to take the precautions when putting other peoples work out there..

    Stop trying to police the internet. If you don't like something then either contact the webmaster because you're wasiting your own time complaing here and other forums.
