How To Fight Plagiarism And People Stealing Your Content !!

We Thank God for such a day as this with a new idea to share with all my loved ones.Today we are going to talk about how we can detect a copy of our web content, how to remove if possible or how we can possibly  file  complains so legal actions be taken. 

One thing you have to understand is that the internet is a very big bank of information where news and information are shared to the mass public. One can not say that him or her started all by himself without learning anything from the experiences of others. No one is all knowing with all knowledge in him or her. For instance this article you are reading are mostly from the knowledge of other people and  the slide share below, I can not boast of it's ownership. However, it hurts to copy once work word for word and replicate it on your website without the rightful owners permission. 

Imagine it takes you almost two to three days acquiring information to produce an article or post for cherished readers and someone else who thinks he is smart takes only just 2 minutes to publish your content on his or her website and builds a reputation with your works, how would you feel ??

To help fight this, you would have to come prepared but it is not really so huge that you can't do! So months ago, I found out that someone was stealing my content word for word and publishing it on his web site and making a big name out of my work. I was not happy with it, so I made a research on how to get him to remove my content and I discovered so many people giving their tutorial and tips as well as the procedures on how to do that. Based on what i learned i was advised to contact the offender to remove the content which I did. After some time of waiting for his reply he never responded so I had to take a legal actions.

It all bores down to the fact that we have to be in the shoes of one another and Imagine that someone is stealing our content just the way  we are stealing others people content !!

It is not something that is new a lot of people have been doing it and they getting away because their time is not due! 




Are People Stealing Your Content? How (and When) to Fight Back from HubSpot


 HOW TO YOU FIND OUT WHETHER SOMEONE IS COPYING YOUR CONTENTS
The are so number of a widely known tools are out there to check whether or not your contents are being stolen and among them we a have Google Alert, copyscade

1. Google Alert
with Google Alert all you need to do is just to copy some portion of your text and paste it in the search query portion and fill the space remember to provide your email so they would email you the report of your check. you can can if you wish create as many alert as you want . Just feel free.


2. Copyscade

With copyscade no much work is done all you have to do is just type your website link in the space and it would provide you all the website that are republishing your contents.


DO SOME EVALUATION AND SEE WHETHER YOUR COMPLAINS ARE CORRECT BEFORE SHOUTING

It is totally unfair if after accusation the person becomes innocent, I can't imagine how you would feel. So it is very much better to make sure all your findings are correct before any actions is taken towards your complains. Take time to go through the work or content to see if it violates copy right rules or whether it is ditto ditto with yours!


IF YOUR FINDING ARE POSITIVE HOW DO YOU STOP THEM FROM COPYING
The best thing to do is to firstly talk to the offender by mail, send him  or her a mail asking them to remove your content. Don't be rude in your mail make it be very polite and friendly and should in case the offender does not have any means of contact just send him a message through his comment form and wait for a reply or an action from the offender, he would remove it like you asked him if he is convinced.

WHAT IF THE OFFENDER DOES NOT COMPLY TO YOUR REQUEST OR COMPLAINS
This is where the problem comes from, here you have to take through the legal actions required to deal with the offender,

1.Most a times these offenders aim for money so the first thing to do is to cease where the money is coming from. Supposing they are using Google ad-sense, just send a complain to Ad-sense . Follow this link http://www.google.com/adsense_dmca.html

2. Inform the host provider of the web site, telling them that a site being hosted on their server is violating copy right regulations.

3. You can also inform Google search that the is a violation of content on your website and that you want that content removed from their search engine. follow this link http://www.google.com/dmca.html







I hope this would help fight content theft !!!
