Content theft by WordPress users

    Several wordpress blogs have taken content from my site ( http://headinside.blogspot.com/ ) without credit and without permission. I would like these posts and images removed from these wordpress blogs as soon as possible. None of these posts identify my site as the origin, and they only link to my site if the content they stole happened to include a link to my site.

    stolen content: The initial image in this article - http://collegeplanningspecialist.wordpress.com/category/sat-testing/
    My original content: http://members.cox.net/beagenius/images/jimmyruska.png (image has been changed to identify it as stolen)

    stolen content: http://www.o2web.co.uk/powerupyourbrain/?page_id=3

  2. Those are self-hosted and you need to be at wordpress.org/support, but I think you'll need to contact the blog owner directly.

    One of your fellow blogspotters recently stole a piece of mine in its entirety. Blogspot sent me an email about 1,000 words long telling me to document it 9 ways from Sunday and send the complaint via snail mail or fax. NO email. Not very helpful on your side of town.

  3. Oops, the first one does have dot.com url - here's the relevant information:

    http://automattic.com/dmca/

  4. The support forum is not a good place to report WordPress.com blogs. Please see here:

    http://wordpress.com/complaints/

    For the record, only one of the blogs you mention is hosted at WordPress.com.
