    Hey guys,

    I have a problem. A problem i am sure many of you deal with. Copied content!
    There are people copying content from my site and posting it on other places like ebay listings and other blogspots and similar.
    How do you deal with this?
    Thanks!

    Send DMCA takedown notices to each host that is currently serving your work without your permission. Since blogspot is a copyright infringement farm, don't expect fast action because there are probably millions of requests ahead of yours. But they will eventually get around to it as will the other hosts.

    Edit:

    It's best not to let Google handle it. Google's algorithm is rating domain authority so high now that there is a good chance someone else will rank for his own work.

    There is nothing like an it police, so basically you can't do much about it. Maybe report the problem to someone ebay rep.

    Soon as you post your content - Add it to your Google author account - tweet it (with a link) and stick it on a facebook link.
    If you have a decent SEO tool syndicate the article properly back to yourself (syndication rules - read up on them - it's a bloody great way to get 20% of your linking content for nothing)
    Free way to get stuff solidly indexed.
    Anyone nicks it from you - and yours is already established as the first and original - they have the copy.

    Scrapers will scrape. Just got to live with it.
