My Blog has been stolen!

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that is the case I should be flattered.

Some miscreant has cloned, Crime, Guns and Videotape and made it his or her own. The additional insult is the collection of revenue from Google’s ad sense.

With no concern about the copyright laws that were violated this clown is too lazy to create an original blog.

I have notified the Internet service provider. They tell me they will take this site down.

Here is the phony site:

UPDATE: The offending site has been shut down.

Consider that a complement. But as per our phone conversation consider further prosecution.
Paul that was the worse case of plagarism one can see. Nothing but a total copy and paste job.
However the more subtle ones others should be more aware of. I have a PI that has plagarized my writings on a lesser level.

Soon Ill set the hook and reel him. I'm writing that article to expose him as it grows.

Paul I commend you for being original, creative and intuitive.
Some have that gift and others wish they had.

It's not just you. I think this is done on an organized basis to steal ad revenue.

They even stole your blog about them stealing your blog.

As one blogger to another, how did you find out about this? Were you pro-active in searching this out or did someone put you onto it?
And yeah, I'm thinking of adding more copyright notices to my own blogs -- not that it'll stop the rip-offs but, with enough of them here, there and yon, maybe it'll slow 'em down enough (trying to edit them out) that they'll go pick on someone else.
It's sort'a like making your house look hard to rip-off so the bad guys hit the neighbors instead. (Are there any stats to show whether or not that works?)
