Google+ House Revivals: Stolen Blog Content

Stolen Blog Content


It happened to me.  I have discovered that content from House Revivals has been hijacked by one of those "fake" blogs.  As I look around this fake blogger's site, I am finding lots of what appears to be stolen content from other blogs, as well. 

This is the blog that contains the hijacked content:

Has any of your own content been hijacked?  If so, be sure to use blogger's "report abuse form" to submit a complaint.

  1. This happened to me about a month ago. You're going to have to make a complaint for each offending post. It took a bunch of complaints to Blogger to get them shut down but eventually we did it.

    Let me know if you need help.

  3. Thanks for the head's up. This isn't the first time this has happened to me. I try not to get TOO worked up about it, but it is very frustrating when you work hard to create original content, and then someone else steals it.

    Thanks for introducing me to your blog, too!

  4. Oh no! That's terrible! This seems to be happening more and more.... I guess we'll all have to start watermarking our photos... :-( (I keep saying I'm going to and then I never get around to it...)

  5. I had content stolen last year, by a supposed-garden site in Thailand ... full of ads and stolen stuff. How did you realize your stuff was on this site?

    Every photo that leaves my computer has a watermark on it, to help create a trail as it travels around the Web. It's almost the same as putting names on our kids' coats and lunchboxes ... so everyone knows where it came from.

  6. Chickens lay added eggs if they are balmy and comfortable. If you reside in an breadth with algid winters, you charge to put some insulation in the hen house.

  7. Wow, this is a eye opener for me. I've had a blog since June & I've thought about it happening. I'm definitely going to make sure everything has a watermark & what are other ways to protect your content?

  8. I've just discovered (over the past 24 hours with FairShare sending me 39 posts thus far....) that someone has stolen the entire of my blog content up to 11 Oct this year! They re-posted a few of the best articles on Tuesday, but essentially, this is totally my blog and even has photos of me on it!

    Thanks for letting me know about the abuse form. There appear to have been well over 300 posts pinched though, so I don't know how this will pan out....

  9. Wow...I am afraid to go to the offending site...as it would give them another hit.
