Wow, didn't realize how much of this was happening! That's good to know. From what I understand though, if you posted the content first and have built your pagerank... the other content is not gonna rank so high, but I may be wrong about this.

How to handle thiefs!

I used to sell on ebay and had a guy copy my entire auction so I reported it and ebay did nothing so since I had the images for the auction on my site I changed the photos with some really disgusting porn and little signs saying things like "I am a thief I stole this auction and images."

Well needles to say when all these really bad porn pictures (No nothing illegal) ebay had him take down the auction. I got a nice little apology from the guy that said he did not know that he could not do that. We actually had a good laugh and I helped him sit up his own site where he could host his own pictures!

It was not really nice but he did it on a really bad day for me.

What does it mean "my computer went down on me"? and how can I get mine to do that.

I just found a site the other day that was 80% copied from mine. In my area at that. I called the guy and he said he had nothing to do with it it was the SEO company. Well it took this guy 2 days and all is taken down.

indianagreensteam: You could only do that cause he linked directly to your images.

This is true.

But like I said we ended up becoming friends so it is just a funny little story.

The point of it was eBay who says that this is not allowed would do nothing until I took drastic actions on my own. I always had images on my own site for ebay because they charge a fortune to host them for you.

i wouldn't worry too much about someone copying your website. as mentioned google are fairly good at detecting this, so as long as your site has been around for a few months then you'll be fine and google will punish the website owner. unless you find that you search on google for your company and you're coming up near or even below the website that's copying your information it's almost not worth any time as you wont be losing any work.

thing is, unless as you say you were like the number one site every one in the area goes to so everyone would see the notice, you're actually helping her by linking to her website, so she will be gaining in serp whilst you'll be possibly losing ever so slightly by linking to her site.

No worries, we were not linked long (just over 30 hours I believe) she was embarrassed at the thought of being pointed out as a content thief and she took my information off immediately at which time as promised I removed the link to her

Plagerism is a big concern for many people who outsource their work on both websites and the real world and as efficient as programs can be, i do have some concerns about the process of content certification, i.e the process of authentication of the content because we know that programs can be fooled.
