I’ve noticed in the last few days that there are people out there scraping content from my site, or at the least, borrowing articles for use on their own sites. I actually only found this out when I saw trackbacks listed in my WordPress dashboard. I’m not sure how I feel about this, or, really, how I should feel about this.
I found two sites that have posted my articles. These two were attributed to me, hence the trackback, but still, I wasn’t asked before the content was borrowed (or stolen if that word is more applicable). That part does bother me a bit.
I’m not sure if there’s anything I can do or anything I should do about this. I know I’m certainly not the only one to have this happen. There are many bloggers out there who have content ripped off from them wholesale. So, I’ll pose this question to my readers: What do you think about content scraping and what do you think I should do?
