Michael Snow wrote:I had this happen to one of my blogs a while back. It was a sewing how-to blog and each post was showing drawings and photos of a pattern I had designed and made myself, and was telling people how to make the costume. It became really popular just before ComicCon and suddenly I had #1 spot on Google search results for that character.
I found one of my articles on some website that specializes in spinning other people's work for profit. under the article they had a place to comment. I posted a comment using my real name, and it was something to the effect of: "I'm glad you enjoyed my work, but if you're going to copy it, a link is needed. changing some of the words in another's intellectual property does not change its status as a copyright violation, and while it's embarrassing to be in any way linked to this poorly reworded piece of infringement, credit is due." I made sure to use big legal words and post a link to the original article. the next morning the stolen article had been removed.

Obsessed? I'm Not Obsessed... REALLY, I'm not!
