Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong location but I would like some advice about what to do regarding a hosted WordPress.com blog that has stolen some of my content.
The blog post in question: http://prakashmca007.wordpress.com/2012/05/15/create-a-pop-up-div-in-jquery/
My original post: http://creativeindividual.co.uk/2011/02/create-a-pop-up-div-in-jquery/
As you can see just from the url, my post is 15 months older than the one hosted on prakashmca007.wordpress.com. Looking at both posts, you can see that my content has be lifted literally word for word, including images, links to download files and viewing the tutorial example - these actually link to the ones on my site.
I can't find any contact details on the blog to contact the blog owner directly so unfortunately my only contact has been by making a comment to the post which from my last check was still awaiting moderation - far from ideal.
As this is a hosted blog I was hoping that you has a little more power/control over this person's blog. Ideally I would like my post removed but I would be happy if the blog owner rewrote the post explaining why he found my post/code useful and making clear reference to my original post.
As a side note, looking at a few other posts on prakashmca007's site, it looks like this content as been scrapped also.
Thanks for any help and advice you can offer me regarding this issue. As you can imagine I was a little upset at finding one of my posts so blatantly copied and would like to resolve this issue as soon as possible.
Thanks in advice,
