Feel Free to Use this Badge

..

Day 315 Part Two

My blog is Copyrighted like all our blogs. I discovered this morning that a site has reproduced my blog entries without my permission. I am reblogging this post from Fandango in an effort to notify others. Do we have any resource as a community? Thank you to John Holton for bringing this to my attention.

This, That, and The Other

With all of the unauthorized harvesting of our posts that is going on at tygpress.com and seemingly not much that can be done to stop it, I created this badge that I will attach to all of my blog posts going forward.EDC343BA-4E67-4F78-BDFB-02FE6D5C0A26Please feel free to grab this image and post it on your blog. By doing so, this image should show up on your posts that have been stolen by tygpress.

You’re welcome.

  1. I am not aware of this happening, except where posts are rebogged. (With credit and links)
    I am always grateful for reblogs, but unathorised use of material from your posts is obviously not acceptable. Thanks for the tip!
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Pete, At John’s suggestion, I searched the website by putting my blog name in quotes in their search bar. The blog I posted this morning was already there. It appears they may be aggregating from Google or perhaps from WordPress.

  2. I did the same search after reading your post and yes, every single post since I started blogging again this winter is there. At least they credit the source but it is absolutely unauthorized and frankly creepy.
