    I don't think that you can prevent plagiarism in any really meaningful or effective way.

    You might try reporting a DMCA violation but I don't know for sure.

    I'm interested in this one, so who else has thoughts on the matter?

    I never worry about plagiarism because it isn't worth the time or effort. Unless you have lawyers who are already on retainer, what is the ROI on fighting to get your content back? The time is better spent on creating more content so you can make more money.

    Philosophically it is hard for me to complain in the first place because of all the "borrowing" that I have done and the money I have made off the trademarks of others. But hey, that's just me ;)

    Sometimes it's easier just to make the best of it. Maybe you could put a couple links in the article so if someone does use it at least you have a chance to get a backlink. If you're worried they'll strip ou the live links, at least mention your site in the article with a "typed", non-live, link. If the article is good people will take the step to type-in the site they see mentioned in the article.

    If someone wants it bad enough, they are going to get it. You can disable right clicks, encode the html etc etc but there are ways around it all if the site is producing content that the person wants to take.

    Again for me it always comes down to ROI. If you are going on principle, that is up to the indivdual to decide.

    Just search in google for "disable right click script" and there will be dozens of options I'm sure. Just as a heads up though, all you have to do is highlight the text and use ctrl+c to copy the text and get around this.

    Unless you have lawyers to notice the ISP hosting the offending copy you will live with it. You can disable right click :

    <script language="JavaScript">
    <!-- var popup="Sorry, right-click
    is disabled.nnThis Site Copyright ©2008"; function noway(go) { if
    (document.all) { if (event.button == 2) { alert(popup); return false; } } if (document.layers)
    { if (go.which == 3) { alert(popup); return false; } } } if (document.layers)
    { document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN); } document.onmousedown=noway; // -->
    </script>

    However this will not prevent the page being saved in the users cache. Take a look at http://www.mnot.net/cache_docs/ for cache control headers. It is a bit more but keep in mind, if someone really wants the text, it can be snatched by a variety of scraper scripts or browsers like LYNX.

    Frankly, if you can visit copyscape.com from time to time and if you find your article, hit the webmaster up for a backlink.

    Good Luck!

    Along with the "no right click" code, you can add this:

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var omitformtags=["input", "textarea", "select"]
    
    omitformtags=omitformtags.join("|")
    
    function disableselect(e){
    if (omitformtags.indexOf(e.target.tagName.toLowerCase())==-1)
    return false
    }
    
    function reEnable(){
    return true
    }
    
    if (typeof document.onselectstart!="undefined")
    document.onselectstart=new Function ("return false")
    else{
    document.onmousedown=disableselect
    document.onmouseup=reEnable
    }
    
    </script>
    It prevents the text from being selected(highlighted) with a mouse...

    (Without this the text can still be copied, by highlighting it and pressing Ctrl+C)

    When google slaps duplicate content, doesn't it add love to the original?

    This would be your best bet because you might actually get something out of it. Once again, you can load your pages up with scripts etc but people are just going to view the source, download the page and open it in an editor etc etc...if they want it they will get it.

    Use the script above to prevent highlighting the text, but you're still not going to prevent people from stealing your article. Just mention your site several times throughout the article and enjoy the free pub

    Have you tried notifying the offender?

    Many times, just a heads up will make people remove plagiarized materials from their site.
    Tell them you are notifying Google etc.

    and if you ever use full rss, see to it that you insert some links within your content, so that when people scrape it, your links will be included too. im occassionally doing this in my posts.

    you can't prevent people from stealing your content that's how it works.

    You can limit your rss feed output to only title and just a small snippet of code.. but frankly don't worry about it.. I count on spammers plagerising my posts. :). I know as long as my posts are indexed first in google, they will always be counted as originals... and by putting links in your posts you will get backlinks..

    A good wordpress.com post for payday loans once made me over $5,000 over the life of that blog.. (before it got banned from wordpress).. the point is that hundreds of scrapers scraped this with links in tact pointing to another wordpress.com blog which is where my affiliate offer was posted.

    That ranked me very nicely in msn and google.

    Anyways, don't worry about scrapers.. Most of them really don't know what they are doing and for the most part they only help you and not themselves by doing this.
