    OK. What would you do if your article was copied. Or you have a forum that writes articles, topics about internet marketing, etc. Then you spot a blog that have most of your stuff copied and paste. How would you go about solving this?

    I'd like to start a forum to write inside stuff about specific topics that's like a goldmine. Can we do something about it if someone copies your stuff and paste it to their own site without giving credit. They don't claim it is their's but they're also not giving credit where due. For example, what if someone copy and paste most of black hat world's good article and from other forums like digital point. The thief will profit (traffic, etc) from the useful info. he took from the original authors. How would the owners go about it? What can they do? I'd really like to know since I'm sure no here here likes there stuff taken and posted on elsewhere. It happens, but I would love to avoid it if possible. Thank you!

    Your main problem is that the internet mainly exist due to copy + paste. Stopping this copying and pasting on the internet is ... will fail. Sorry.

    I recommend you do it privately and invite only or de-internetize it altogether. :lmao:

    I think the best you can do is hagio said contact hem have them add your url as the source, or if they dont then have them delete it.
    '"kind of like a okay i see you have my article on there if you wanna keep it add me as the source....if not then kindly remove the article/s"

    It's just the way the Internet is. Much of the "new" content is actually just rewritten versions of others work.
