What to do if your website content is stolen

Stephan Spencer has some practical suggestions for responding to website copycats in his article, "Stop, Thief! How to Protect Your Site from Copyright Infringement."

His practical suggestions include using Copyscape to locate website content copiers and using WayBack Machine to prove who put the content online first.

In addition, he suggests steps to follow in contacting copyright infringers or responding less directly.

I hope I never have to use Spencer's info. But I'm glad I know about his article.
