You already know that publishing good content on the Internet is not easy . Need an idea, a little time to develop, document yourself and write it. Another time to shape your blog: add some links, think what image can illustrate your article and give it a spin to keywords. And yet, that dedication is increasingly important: a good online content helps to put you in the search engines, shows that you know what you're talking about, you generate reputation.

However, copy content for use in our favor is darn easy. In five minutes you can appropriate the idea and put it in your blog no more. And friends of copy & paste know and it is increasingly common to find you with that effort you have put into creating your content can end up on a blog of another without your permission and often without even prove that the work is yours.

How to detect if we have copied
The generalization of the blatant copy & paste leads to having to check from time to time that we own our content. There are several ways to do the most trivial Google search is a fragment of a whole post and check out some piratilla appears in the results. And of course there are more sophisticated tools (which, after all, do the search for you, quickly and efficiently).

Some of these tools are already well known: you can use which is a freemium model (free gives ten results and if you need further suggests a micropayment). That brings up an interesting consideration: not all uses of content are counterproductive plagiarism.

What to do if you have copied content

First, rejoice: you've done something good enough for someone to want to take over your creation.

Second, it evaluates whether or not to allow that use. The contents of my personal blog are under a Creative Commons license that has three conditions. The first is that you must cite the author (and I quote), the second is that there must be a commercial use (and since your blog does not contain advertising, it seems that fulfills this premise) and the third is that the content must be published with the same conditions (it is doubtful if any, and does not alter the original work, does not infringe assume that “share alike")

Know that if you entered your blog or your content is copyrighted, any copy is a violation of your rights. And you must also know that if your content does not specify any license, copyright applies by default. All content is an author, and their rights must be respected.

Third, values that interests you most: perhaps that copy will be deriving traffic to your blog if you have included a link, or perhaps you are creating visibility if you cite as author. If not the case, my advice is that first of all, make a screenshot of the offense. Then, contact the offender and let them know you've noticed his maneuver. Depending on your answer, you can do several things:

• Request you remove that content.
• Ask for compensation (very common in the case of photographs).
• Ask link to your blog and you acknowledged as the author.
• Initiate legal procedures of complaint

It may be that the offender does not listen to reason, and that you do not have the time or desire to enter into legal disputes. Do not give up : you can always make known publicly that that content is yours. A tweet denouncing the offender sometimes miracles ... And even if it seems that does not help, who will copy the contents of others using and if public complaints multiply, erosion of its credibility is inevitable. Everything just knowing dropwise and post to post l offender may end realizing that copy content ends up being expensive. There are already some cases of brands that have seen his reputation into question by appropriating blog content.
