Well, maybe not these three. They ARE big, but not nearly mean enough.
So, what brings about the need of protection, you may ask. I've had a post stolen...post, accompanying photograph, the whole shebang. Not from this blog, but from What's Cookin' 4 Miles North of Nowhere . I had an anonymous email from someone alerting me that it was on another (very commercial) blog, unattributed of course.
What I find really nasty about them is that they have a copyright notice on their blog that states, "This blog is copyright protected, and anything on it belongs to _________." Yeah, right.
My first reaction was to Google what to do about a stolen blog post. I found an awesome article posted by Rhonda at Crafterminds detailing how to go about approaching the plagiarizer. I don't have time or energy to begin the process tonight.
I thought I'd come ask you guys how you feel about it. Ever had anything blatantly lifted from your blog? I don't really care about the recipe (which I'm sure I found on a label somewhere decades ago and morphed into my own over the years), but it is really just kind of creepy seeing my photo with my napkin and my counter top (from the old house). Oh yeah, the counter top is from the old house, because the post they lifted from me predates their blog. Oi vey. Is there an emoticon for an eye-rolling bummed-out blogger?
