Your Genealogy Blog - Content Theft and Guarding Your Internet Reputation

Just a heads up that many genealogy bloggers are seeing their recent blog content reused at splogs (spam blogs). Just like spam and every other scam that seems to invade the Net, periodically blog content theft rears its ugly head and hits even genealogy blogs.

I've written about this extensively over at the GeneaBloggers.com website and you can read more here.

You'll find ways to detect blog content theft, how to send a cease and desist notice, how to set up automatic alerts for your content, and how to guard your reputation as a genealogist and a blogger on the Internet.

I would like more information on this suject. I did as suggested and visited several blog sites, however, I only found 3 that had any mention of copyright. Any additional advice beyond visiting the site you mentioned? Does Blogger provide any type of standard copyright or terms of use to their bloggers?
