My Articles are been blindly copy-pasted on a WordPress hosted Blog

  1. Hi,
    There is a WordPress blog hosted by WordPress.com whose owner is blindly copy-pasting my Articles and posting them on his forum without credit. I have contacted the owner but not reply.
    I request to dismiss/ban his/her account as this is direct violation of T&C (AFAIK)

    The Blog is: http://coscomp.wordpress.com
    My site is: http://www.techfreakiez.com

    example of few of the posts copied:

    coscomp: http://coscomp.wordpress.com/2008/09/06/create-your-own-dos/
    my site: http://www.techfreakiez.com/component/content/article/37-tips/97-create-your-own-dos.html?directory=64

    and many more...

    I request to please take strict action against the blog.
    Thanks

    That's ok. It's not easy to find that link anyway. And staff don't always respond this quickly. This was exceptionally fast.

  6. For future reference though this report was very good. It shows the original and the copy - makes it very easy for us to compare, make a decision and act. If only every such email we got was as clear :)
