You need to be filling out DMCA's to these sites and requesting Google to drop the offending pages.
One funny thing that I noticed is that some sites rank in front of mine, even if they only post an excerpt of the article, say 50 words including a read more link to my site...
...Anyone knows if the posting of excerpts falls under DMCA as well?
I contacted a webmaster that copies my content, but he told me he would continue copying because it was redituable for him. Unfortunatly we haven't got leagal weapons against it in Argentina
he would continue copying because it was redituable for him.
About DCMA, I sent a letter to a server wich hosted a duplicated site of mine, and they took around 2 months to remove the content. And I am not sure if it is only for American sites.
mhansen, they copy and past manually. We used to have an script that automatically add a "read more link" at the botton, but we took it out because we thought it could be a bad thing for google.he would continue copying because it was redituable for him.- If he replied to your email, block his IP from your server.
- If he is scraping your RSS, block his server IP from yours.
- Start including 1x1 pixel images (Transparent) near the top of your content, and after 30 days pass... change the image to a 1200x600 image, showing your domain, or something that would REALLY upset his readers!
Getting a scraper to answer is 99% of the problem... now that you have THAT, I would make his life miserable!
