Thief

Fellow bloggers, you might want to look at rodmanpoker.com and see if they are stealing your posts the same way they are stealing mine. Predictably, there is no contact information, so nobody to complain to.

Thanks to HighOnPoker for alerting me to this.



Update

I wrote to the site owner and asked him what he was doing. He replied: "Sorry Ill remove it.. I was just messing around with auto blogs.. I don't even have any ads on the sites.. sorry about that." And, in fact, it does appear that the site has now removed the material.

You should put a 'poker grump' watermark (or some derivative) on your photos.

Why would anyone want to do this when they don't appear to be monetizing it through ads or poker room links?

Jennifer said...

Looks like they removed all content. Not one thing on the site was original. I have such a hard time believing that people don't understand how wrong it is to plagiarize.

Snuffy and I actually had somebody we know start an aggregation site not unlike that one and use our content.

Again, there was no monetization on the site that I could find but I'm sure that's where it was going.

I mentioned it up in a Skype conversation while we were playing the tour and the guy who made it was at least big enough to admit he did it. I explained to him that people don't like somebody else profiting from their writing and/or using their intellectual property without attribution. Either way it is a bad thing.

I'm glad you were able to work it out.

Dude is at it again, it appears. I just got a note pointing me to his site, and once more he's cut/paste my content.
