Nelson explains what to do when someone steals your blog

I learned about a practice called “content scraping” today, because it happened to a post I wrote: Someone reprinted an entry (under my byline but on their blog with no credit to the original post).

The person likely intended no wrong-doing but I was concerned about how to respond. A Google search directed me to a post by Melanie Nelson: What to Do When Someone Steals Your Blog Post.

In her post, Nelson provides practical instruction upon how to proceed, as well as provides a sample message with which to contact the person responsible. Nelson blogs at Blogging Basics 101.
