Updated – A Victory for the Good Guys!
I’m pleased to announce that through the combined efforts of hundreds of bloggers, the site mentioned below has been shut down. Hip, hip hooray! Hopefully this is a permanent fix to this awful infringement problem!
Original blog post starts here:
Now, you guys know I’m all about sharing with others. In fact, I often share some of my content with other bloggers, or on other pattern sites when they have asked my permission to do so.
However it has come to my attention that the website QuiltPatternsPro.com has stolen a large chunk of my blog content and reposted it on their site as their own. And I’m not the only one. They have also stolen content from many bloggers out there that you know.
We are starting to band together to get the word out. Here’s how you can help. Go to their site by typing it into google. I’m certainly not going to provide a link here. Then search your name or blog title into their search box and see if you come up.
If you do find that your blog content has been stolen, please go here and read the section about “copyright claims” and report it to godaddy.com. Hopefully with enough reports, we can get this problem taken care of!
Final Updated Comments:
As stated at the top of this page, this problem has been swiftly taken care of and the website has been shut down. Hopefully the same company will not just set up shop on another server. But if they do, we will keep a watchful eye out!!
For tomorrow’s post, I’ll return you back to my regularly scheduled friendly blog persona….. 🙂
