About a year ago, I noticed that my article on using hosts.allow was copied by someone without the proper attributions or link back. I submitted a DMCA request to the blogger’s hosting provider and the article was then removed by the provider. Well, the plagiarizer did not learn his/her lesson as the blog was moved to a different hosting provider with the plagiarized article in tact.
I have posted a comment on the offending blog post and will give the plagiarizer 48 hours before sending another DMCA request to the new hosting provider. Just like last time, I was able to find out by looking at the incoming links report provided by Google Webmaster Tools. Thank you, Google.
Update: It looks like the comment that I posted, notifying the plagiarizer about the infringement, has been deleted. I’m sorry, but that crosses yet another line and a DMCA request has been submitted to the copyright/legal department of The Planet (the hosting provider of the site maintained by the plagiarizer).
