Have you been plagiarized before? How did you deal with it?


UPDATE 8/22/06 — Finally the guy revised all the posts already! Even just an apology would do but I guess he is scared. I’m glad he also changed the plagiarized Lori’s posts and starting to come clean. The google DMCA complaint did it 🙂

April 28, 2006 Update: I wrote the website owner about the plagiarized article as advised by Lorelle in her posts What Do You Do When Someone Steals Your Content. Thanks to Nina of for this great article and suggestion!
