Stop stealing content from this site! (updated)

I’m now seeing several sites that are stealing content from FiveOuncesOfPain.com. These sites are copying and pasting entire entries on this blog and passing it off as their own with no author listed and no reference to FiveOuncesOfPain.com.

If you’re one of these sites that are committing copyright infringement, it needs to stop and it needs to stop now. You might think you’re slick because you have disabled comments on your page and have no contact info available but I can find out how to get a hold of you. If it comes to that, chances are I will have my attorney contact you on my behalf and you can explain your actions to him.

If you want to use an excerpt of something that appears here and or post a link back, I’m more than okay with that. But I have no idea why people think they can steal content from this site and others and get away with it? I work too hard on this blog to stand by and watch other people steal my stuff and make money off of it when I currently don’t see a dime from this blog.

Update: I realize it isn’t easy trying to work a job or go to school, spend time with your family, and also maintain a blog. But if you’re so cramped for time that you have to steal content, then maybe you should re-examine the idea of you doing a blog? I’m always open to working with other writers, bloggers, and just about anyone. You can always e-mail me at SCaplan8@comcast.net if you are new (or old) to blogging and are looking for feedback or ideas. I can’t guarantee I can always help, but I will always listen and do what I can. This offer also applies to people who aren’t lifting content. I’m always open to the idea of working with others in the industry.
