My blogpost is copied at wordpress.com [plagiarism issue]
Some blog hosted on wordpress.com has copied my blogpost without providing any credits or linkback.
This is serious issue.
My original post
I wrote this post on my blospot blog on April 18 2007, and this post was copied on http://harshitpandey.wordpress.com on june 6 2007.
Also the images used in that blog are directly hotlinked from my blogger account. Please take an appropriate action against this internet thief.
I see your ticket in support. This can only be dealt with there. I will respond in a few short minutes.

Actually I got bit paranoid. If you feel, you can remove this thread from forums and can deal the issue in private.
The guy really doesn’t care about copyright, that’s for sure… If you look at this post:
it is close to a carbon copy of this post.
No attribution, no link, no thanks, just a post and that’s it.
Thanks, lettershometoyou. I’ll investigate any other possible copyright issues with the blog.
Thanks for the fast support. I just gor an email indicating that the blogpost has been removed from that blog.
Even I was looking into the other posts of that blog. Most of the images used are hotlinked from other blogs without any attribution.
So I was just thinking that is deleting a single post a solution?
Thank you WordPress.
I have blogged about the issue and follow up on my blog.
Is a copy of this post:
In fact, if you google not the first sentence but the second or third of each post, you’ll find that pretty much everything in the blog came from somewhere else. I think that blog is not long for this world. Reported as spam.
I love doing that.
Wordpress Rocks :)
Opps.. That blog is online again.
is copied from
Glad they resolved it for you. I found a website where somebody copied all my text verbatim (it was a travel article) and all my photos (including a photo which included a portrait of myself!) I wrote countless times to the owner of the website, but didn’t once receive a reply, so my plagerised page still remains there. Sadly it wasn’t plagerised on a wordpress related website.
banzy3 here is something that can help you
Thanks Technicalbliss, I’d tried most things suggested in the list short of sending a fax. I write with quite unique sentences in my articles so I was entirely certain that if I did a google search, only my article would appear. Lo and behold about 20 pages with my text popped up, mainly other bloggers using snippets of my work with one or two photos and a credit. Whilst none of them ever contacted me in the first instance, I had no objections. I was just a bit annoyed that this one site copied the whole lot with no credit, but I left a stern comment at the bottom of the article and redirected people to my original page.
It just got re-reported.
How can it pop up again after being taken down? That’s just dumb.
He probably only took down the specific posts that got reported. But if you google any sentence out of the MIDDLE of his posts, you find they’re all stolen from elsewhere. Or at least all the ones that I have found.
Yes I am bit disappointed. Also few individuals have expressed different opinions in the comment space of my blog
Seems like wordpress.com needs to pay a bit more attention to this issue.
