My persistent content thief

I must be very famous. First someone stole my content. Then, after I gave him the f word, he added my links as source. However, I did not allow him to use it and had asked three times.

Screenshot of my latest request. I alerted the other bloggers about their contents as well. They asked me how I know about it. I just copy a few sentences of the content into Google search and then, I locate the original author. You can try that next time. Or use Copyscape. However, Copyscape results are not very thorough.

Then, another person started a blog using 5xmom1. (I am adding the link to my personal blog. The copycat used a blogspot) Sigh….

JohnChow is lucky to have JohnCow. Me? I ended up with losers only.

To all content thefts – Your action will never bring you any money because if you dream of getting organic traffic, you can dream on. None of us can get rich by just putting up Adsense and selling TLA referral links. Those who earn money have worked hard with their contents, stay in the loop with peers and know our directions. You are just a thief lurking in the dark and no one will find you. Dream on and good luck on earning your first three cents. When you do that, remember to tell your grandchildren in future how you earn money by stealing contents. I am sure your future generation will be proud of you.

    I’m just wondering why the blog is still there? Like no action is being taken by Google or Blogspot.

    weirdoux – Tarak femes lah. But what annoyed me is the person took one post with personal references and it appears like his post. Damn, that’s freaky.

    hafreze – Thanks for dropping by! You can do it too, but a lot of time and hard work lah.

    JiNG – I don’t want liao, and I no famous, ok?

    Theng Heng – All of us did submit the complaints to Google and TLA. TLA asked me to make a DCMA complain. Google – no news from them. So I am going to use the two methods. Thanks again.

    ahpek – Beh shiok!

    shoppingmum – Yalor, waste my breath only.

    Did you report the blog to AdSense? You can do so by clicking on the “Ads by Google” then “The site is hosting/distributing my copyrighted content”.

    People just won’t learn even people have warned them.
