Are these people infringing WP copyright?

  1. Got a link back to one of my posts from http://blogbyalerts.blogspot.com/2007/10/google-alert-i_2477.html I was interested to note their template, and perhaps WP will be too! Follow the tabs there and you will see even more examples of what appear to be rip-offs from WP and others. The blog itself on the link above seems to exist mostly as a vehicle for the ads, some of them very annoying...

  2. That's nasty! The template's not an issue: it's Garland, which was designed for Drupal and adapted for WordPress. I believe it's freely available.

    But they are definitely a blog scraper. You might want to email them and assert your copyright, or you can contact the company with the ads and report them there; that's highly effective.

  3. "There have been a lot of questions recently about how to deal with blog scrapers, and i thought it might be useful to put up a step-by-step guide for sending a DMCA notice (or not)."
