Hey guys.
Not long ago I saw a link to a website where you can type your url and it searches the web if another website has stole your content (I write many reviews on my site and I just want to make sure that nobody is using my work). Does anybody remember that?

Thank you

Yes, I use Copyscape and they are good but be prepared to be shocked at the number of people who are stealing your work. Also be prepared to put a significant amount of time into dealing with it.

Yep, and don't get obsessive about it or you'll end up costing yourself lots of time and hence money!

It's also interesting to find big name companies stealing your text and images!

I find my original content spread all over the web, often with my name still attached to it. I used to spend a lot of time on it, but I pretty much ignore it now. Most of these sites rank so poorly in the SERPs that very few people will ever stumble across it.

I recall reading that if you include full URL's in the body of an article (no href's) that it will help increase your rank despite being unclickable.

If this holds true, all those dups are working for you.

BlueSquares, I do not see how that could help if it is unclickable.

If something "new" appears in one site, it will spread all over the web and world. Copyright or infringment can and will not stop such matters.
