Copyright and Wrong

Last night I stumbled upon a site called Top Recipes News (http://toprecipesnews.blogspot.com) which has been republishing my feed since October and if you visit the site you'll see that they are also republishing the feeds from Coconut and Lime, Wild Yeast, Pioneer Woman and Simply Recipes, just to name a few.

I've already filed a DMCA relating to the 76 posts that they have taken from me.

If you find your blog on that site I have some tips to help immediately put an end to their scraping.

Check out your email subscription database and delete the following email address
chicofalafacil@gmail.com

This is the address they have used to subscribe to the feed. In fact, it would be a good idea for everyone to check their lists to make sure that email address isn't on it.

Secondly, I suggest you not write to that address as the site seems to republish everything they receive via that email address. It can be funny in a sad sort of a way especially when they republish DMCA takedown notices.

Lastly, if your content has been taken I'll also urge you to file a DMCA with blogger using their online form - maybe if enough of us complain they will delete the site and the account.
