    I was reading this article :

    h**p://iampariah.com/blog/blog-main/feedwordpress-content-theft-with-consequences.php

    and was wondering if anyone here has gotten many complaints or threats about being sued for stealing content for your splogs? Seems like the penalties could be stiff...

    I'd like to get some advice on this too. I just got one for the first time and wondered if you guys resonded to it all. Their tactic was to make a ton of totally untrue statements in order to try to bait me in to opening up a line of communication with them.

    Any more personal cases and how it was handled would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers

    Yep. Comply then move on. I got one from a company who had the words in my domain trademarked. I complied and gave up the domain to them but several others who gave a shit fought it and won. Judge said they were too generic. I should have but easier to move on.
