I was googling Heat it to Beat It, to find their home page, as I was hoping it was high up on the Google ranking, and I turned up this website…they had copied and pasted my own Heat it to Beat It August 11 post from my blog (after they removed the link to my personal fundraising page) and claimed it was written by “Mesothalioma Treatment Options”. Kind of strange! I wouldn’t have minded if they had linked to my blog or stated me as their source, as I want the event to get a lot of attention. But….
See it here on the Mesothelioma web site, the site that is plagerizing my posts from the Appendix Cancer Survivors Blog.
I today added to my site “If you use my posts/content, please link to my site or credit the source” along with a notice that I am now protected by “Copyscape”, so do not copy my content.
I don’t think I’m such a great writer, but I still want to own what I write, I guess? It come from my, and only my heart. Not someone else’s.
