    Blogging is a medium of sharing something interesting on web,it require hard work to write any useful article.Many bloggers write any article by doing lots of research on the web.They may inspired from article written on the web. copygator thumb Protect your blog post from copy Geeks These idea may came after visiting different sites: 1) Aggregators like Techmeme,digg or ycombinator 2)Following  niche blogs like Techcrunch,Mashable,Readwrite web. 3) Continuously reading different blog feeds with the help of Feedreaders. But I am sure you guys get very annoyed if you found any article on the web is exact copy of your article. And also if you never find back link of your blog. This is illegal.I was also one of the witness of this type of activity when Harsh told me that one of my article exactly line by line copied by a blogger on WordPress. These type of activity is some how harmful for any blog because duplicate contain may effect the SEO of blog. I was lucky that Harsh Agrawal noticed and told me about that but this might happen with you and it is most probable that you might unaware of that. Here I am telling about a service available known as Copygator which tell you about the sites that are copying your content. According to Copygator

    This is a free service designed to monitor your RSS feed and find where your content has been republished in the blogosphere. We automatically notify you when a new post of yours is copied to another feed, we also build an overview page you can view to see how/when/where your content is being duplicated, quoted or plagiarized.”

    You can directly enter your URL to know about the sites which are using your feed content. Copygator would also notify you if any site will use your feed via email, RSS. I use this service and found it very interesting because the results are very accurate and very frequent. cpy thumb Protect your blog post from copy Geeks Also read: Use-robots.txt to protect your blog from duplicate content

    That’s the best think I like about Copygator — It’s free. Though Copyscape is reasonably fast and useful but only one thing which I don’t like is it’s paid.

    Yes, this tool is really very effective in terms of functionality, you can see the immediate and accurate results.One more simple tip, if you want to check your content is copied or not, simply copy one paragraph of an article and search it into Google, if the article is previously present anywhere then definitely it had been indexed by Google. Your friend Google will tell the truth :-)

    I have been working online for a little over 10 years and all though my blog writings are hardly anything anyone would want to rip off, I do understand and respect how crappy this is.

    You never know when someone start copying your blog post and you will realize it later when his copied blog will suck up all the bandwidth from your hosting in the form of Copied image.
    So If you find any content thief, don’t forget to Email him, and even though he doesn’t remove the article. File a DMCA complaint.

    @Sham DMCA, I think you mean Digital Millennium Copyright Act , its basically a USA copyright act as i learned from Wikipedia. i don’t know India comes under that.
    Copyright is really a very complex issue in the world of web because it involve the law of several different countries, and it might be possible that law of one country may not get that much respect in other country. Take the example of Pirate Bay. It is legal in one country but illegal in another.
    You may contact some legal advisor for proper advise in this case. In my information Mr. Pavan Duggal Senior Advocate of Supreme court is best deserving advisor in India.

    Rahul every article you write, it’s your own content (Imp thing : You should have a privacy policy)
    This is to find out which people are copying your blog content.

    Thanks, but how you know, who is coping and where they are copying.
    Once your page indexed on search engines. SE are intellegent enough to find which is copy material and which is original.

    there are many out there copying content from others blog and post on their own. I think its very hard to find and stop each n every of them and put time in scolding them.
    i think they should provide a link back if they want to copy the content on their blogs
