This is a great site - I've used some of the tools listed there to find scrapers of my writing site's content and had the offending sites shut down after a due warning and no response (or in one case, a mocking response).

One publication had republished an article from my site under a mistaken impression it had permission, and I negotiated a link back, since they had a higher readership than mine. smile.gif

The story about John Tesh's blog stealing text is hi-lar-ious.

How damn lazy is that?? As if it would kill him to simply rewrite it, or at least give a link.

This was good too.

I'll just note in passing that I've had to issue DMCA notices to walletpop on a couple of occasions regarding the lifting and use of some of my CC-NC photos. In neither case did I get any response from walletpop or AOL when I escalated up the food chain. It was only after I started posting comments on the pages themselves that the images were removed.

Pot and kettle etc.
