Web Content is Being Stolen for Profit November 13, 2005Posted by jtintle in Thievery.
While that may not seem like a big deal, I never gave them permission to reproduce my content for a profit. Yes they do try to make a profit with their services. If they would have webmasters submit websites to their services that would be different. However reproducing content without the authors permission, and no reference link to the actual site is wrong in my eyes.
Another arguement is what if my sites had their own WAP enable mirrors? In other words, if my sites were accessible via a WAP browser to begin with, wouldn’t that service be taking away hits and traffic from a site I worked hard to build?
