    Everyone here is pretty familiar with my blog located at:
    Make Money Online | Running Online Business

    Take a hard look at it.
    Examine the list of categories on the lower right side, look at some of the post titles.

    Now, take a look here:
    hxxp://onlinegetsmoney.blogspot.com/

    See any similarities? Of course you do! They replicated my blog and it's content! They even went so far as to download images I used in posts, as well as files I made available for download, and put them on their blog using file hosting sites like mediafire and rapidshare. Did they change the content? At least try to hide it? Nope. It's an exact replica.

    So, what did I do? Well, I filed a DMCA Notice with Blogger, of course. I'm sure the infringing content will be removed shortly. "Thanks for reporting this possible Terms of Service violation. We will examine it soon and take action as necessary." But what would make a person think that they could get away with just copying my entire blog?

    Sometimes the stupidity of people astounds me.
    It happens everyday. People steal my shit all the time.

    I actually copyrighted my proxy guide, so now I have the law on my side (at least in most countries)

    If I may ask, how did you do that? What are the procedures one should follow to get something copyrighted?

    Thanks

    http://copyright.gov/ (This is for the US, not sure about international copyrighting offices). I payed for the basic $35 copyright.

    Yes, that's international, SonnyCooL. Any original works produced by someone are automatically copyrighted. However, there is an official process in the United States through which you can register your content and have it copyrighted on paper, making your case against anyone who steals it a lot easier and more stable.
