pagpangawat-sulud.pngSayo ning semanaha, pipila sa inyo ang nakamatikod nga akong giapas ang usa ka blogger nga nangawat sa sulud Martech Zone. At times, this happens as someone gets excited and decides that they're doing me a favor by extending my audience. Not the case. This joker even published the post out onto a third-party site with his own name as the author. Not acceptable.

This guy posted the stolen post on his blogger blog. That wasn't smart, since Blogger does comply with Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) take-down notes. I filled out Blogger's form and received notice today that they had removed the stolen content.

I am very appreciative of Blogger's support on this!

Giunsa ang Pagpangandam alang sa Pagkuha sa imong Sulud nga Sulud

It's important to note that I purposely leave a breadcrumb trail in my blog posts. Very seldom do these thieves rewrite or copy the content and paste it. Instead, they write algorithms and grab your RSS feed and simply push it out to their blog. Most of the time this happens, the blogger isn't aware. I am. One of the reasons I developed the Plugin sa PostPost aron ako maka-edit ug makadugang sulud sa akong footer. Ang matag post sa akong RSS feed adunay usa ka klase nga link balik sa akong blog.

Sunod, gipatindog ko Google Alert with my domain as the search term (as well as some others I can't tell you about). Now – each time someone links to my blog, I get an email alert with a chunk of the post. It's instantly recognizable when I read my content in the body of the alert.

Pag-adto sa panggubatan

Perhaps one of the sneakiest things I do is that I instantly purchase images from iStockPhoto for all of my posts for the next week or so. Since I pay for the photos, it's legal for me to use them but no one else. If you're stupid enough to be stealing my content, you're probably publishing these purchased images as well. Now I have a major corporation hellbent on fighting copyright theft on my side. As soon as I see the posts published, I contact support through ISTOCKPHOTO ug ireport ang matag usa sa mga post, ang mga imahe, ang ilang gigikanan ug nga sila gikawat.

To be honest, I'm not sure if iStockPhoto has pursued any of the cases… all of them have taken down the posts when I've found them and told them. There's still some guilty little pleasure in it for me, though. I don't want to be on the wrong side of a copyright suit with iStockPhoto. They've got deep pockets and a lot of lawyers.

Sultihi ang ilang mga Higala

I'm not quiet about it. I do a Whois.net lookup to identify the hosting company and the person who owns the site. I'll try to contact the person directly at first. Then the emails go out to the hosting company, tweets get angrier, and Facebook Wall messages get posted. I won't stop until I begin to get responses back.

As I said before, I've never had to go beyond this point. There's always the chance that someone will steal my content and be offshore, hidden, and virtually impossible to chase. I'll do my best to report them to the search engines at that point, but I will NOT let them get away with it. You shouldn't either!

    Kini usa ka maayong post!

    Apan naghunahuna ko kung mahimo ba nimo akong tanyagan pipila ka mga tambag sa usa ka malansis apan parehas nga kahimtang.

    Ingnon ta nga ang mga tawo nag-post sa imong mga imahe ug mga kuha sa screen sa imong mga imahe sa usa ka dili nagpaila nga board sa imahe (basaha: 4chan.org), nga bantog sa wala’y pagpakabana sa bisan unsang butang. Giunsa nako makuha ang pagkuha sa kana nga butang kung wala ko nahibal-an kung kinsa ang gi-post kini?

    Kumusta Festher,

    Mahimo nimo ang usa ka butang nga magtiayon:
    1) Watermark ang imong mga imahe. Pagbutang us aka mubo nga sulat sa kanila nga giingon ang imong kompanya o ngalan sa website. Tan-awa ang mga site sama sa iStockphoto ug makita kini nimo.
    2) Tin-aw sa mga lagda sa 4chan nga ang mga kalapasan grabe nga pagaatubangon. Makontak ko sila pinaagi sa ilang contact page http://www.4chan.org/contact - kung dili sila motubag, ipadala kanila ang mga mensahe pinaagi sa Twitter o kung asa man nimo mahimo.
    3) Katapusan nga paningkamot sa kanal: Mahimo nimo sila kasuhan. Labi na kung ang site dili langyaw ug ang mga tag-iya nahibal-an, sunda sila.
