Content theft blogs are blogs that merely aggregate the posts of other blogs, and actually take credit for these posts. Sound insane? It happens a lot.
I have a post called "secret depths of blogging" over at Vaspers the Grate. Imagine my surprise when I did a Technorati "blogs that link to me" search...and discovered some asshat using my post as their content.
"secret depths of blogging by Digital music download music shopping"
link to content theft felony blog
WTF? "by Digital music..." ? Hell no. That post "secret depths of blogging" is by Vaspers the Grate. See that link to my post, at the bottom, that says "Original Post:...."? That's a link to my post. But, although they link to me, they are taking credit for the post, which is only partially quoted.
See the term "digital effluvium" in the text? That's my original neologism, an expression I invented. No one else in the entire world uses that expression. I'm not sure what the purpose of this blog is, though I suspect it's a link farm "splog", or spam blog, a blogoid object that exists merely to drive traffic to other sites.
Do not click on any links in this blog, for they're probably malicious, links to spyware or virus attaching sites.
I plan to press charges and sue the blogger. I want to destroy this con artist and his shitty aggregator blog that rips off music-oriented content of other blogs.
Content theft blogs are usually, maybe always, anonymous. They don't have the balls to identify themselves. I have seen this plagiaristic practice many times, and this is not the first Pseudo Blog to steal my content.
