:: My Blog is Being 'Scraped' ::

I was informed today that my blog and all it's content is being 'SCRAPED'
...yes, scraped ...NOT Scrapped (just in case you were confused)



To be quite honest...It's making me crazy in the head! 




I'm Not going anywhere-- 




















just my content has been taken and put elsewhere--so that others can make money off my every enticing and super interesting word.

I just wanted to let you know,
in case you thought my blog was going to the dogs!

(btw, look how Buster is growing! He's almost as big as Trouble. )

and they are doing this why, and can they do it without your agreement? Interesting, keep us posted.

Frankly, I'm confused about what this means, but it sounds completely unacceptable! Hope it turns out ok for you.

I've heard of this and actually informed bloggers when I see their very own posts word for word in another blog without giving anyone credit. I'm sure it's not legal but who knows where in the world this is being done.

Faith said...

? How is this legal? I've not heard of this. Can it be done if you purchase your domain?

Melanie said...

Disgusting isn't it? Keep us informed.

Wow!! Buster has gtown so much!! He is a handsome fella!!

Pondside said...

This is awful! How did you find out?

I've had a bunch of my posts stolen and reposted under another blog...it's not legal but who's going to hire and attorney and pursue it? It would just be a headache and expensive...But this scraping I'm not familiar with.

That stinks. Don't go away forever.

Diane said...

Never heard of this before. Such an evil world-- someone doesn't have anything better to do?? Yes, keep us posted! Buster looks like a cross between a German Shepherd and a fox! Cute pup!

Sorry to hear about this...I'm thinking it's becoming more and more common, and I'm not sure what anyone can do to protect themselves. I do know some bloggers are truncating their posts to help elevate piracy, but I'm not sure how well that works. Just keep your posts coming...we all enjoy them.
Blessings!

Whatttt? This doesn't seem right. Who takes it and where does it go? Can we all go on it and make comments to the effect it is stolen material? I guess the only way to look at it in a positive way is that someone thinks it's good enough to steal. But it's stealing, taking away without your permission. Furkids looking good. So are the featherkids. Ann

Hmmmm!!! Someone could come in and scrape the dirt off my computer, but scraping a blog? The evil doers never stop, do they. xo Laura

I'm not sure what that mens, but it sounds rather ominous... I hope you find it again! Hugs, Cindy

So sorry that this happened - whatever it is. Haven't heard of this one. Some people must be so evil and have so much time on their hands that they do things like this. Sorry.

Keep us posted.
