Not long after I posted “Some father you are!”, mandersmusings blog owner told me that THAT specific post had been stolen by an adult blog. My first thought was “Why me???!!” so I send an e-mail to WordPress. Then I looked at their homepage. Mine wasn’t the only one whose post who had been taken without permission! Almost 30 MORE posts had been taken within a 10-hour time without permission.

EDITED AUG 15TH: MANDERS MUSINGS POSTED A LINK WITH INFORMATION. BLOG LINK REMOVED.

I’m interested, but we’re talking about a German hosting company. They’re members of the Berne Convention, I think, so a DCMA notice should work.

But REMOVE YOUR LINK to their site! This is HELPING them, just FYI! And it’s what they WANT! 🙂

The stolen.wordpress blog shows the IP and contact information for the site. We can all write together. 🙂
