I understand that someone might make a mistake and think it's okay to copy a little here and there. But some of the things I've seen are just insane. For example, one guy failed to delete the tracking script on my pages, so his pages started showing up on my reports. Another guy, in Florida, has abundant references to Houston (my city) on his web site. These guys seem to just cut and paste and hope nobody reads it-- and apparently they can't.

When I've checked on copy cats in the past I focused on my home page. Vermontpainter alerted me to someone using another page from my site, and that caused me to look deeper. So thanks again for that heads up Scott.

As I mentioned to Scott, the funny thing is I have let people use some of my material in the past-- when they asked ahead of time. And I've rewritten some of my material for others. I've not above giving someone a hand, but if someone wants to reach into my pocket and help himself... that's a different story.

Another thing I find almost amusing is that some of the most popular pieces for others to copy are articles on honesty and integrity. The irony is amusing; the hypocrisy isn't.

End of rant.

Moral of the story: look beyond your home page for copy cats. If you find them, stomp on them quickly, decisively, and without remorse. They must not be allowed to reproduce.
