Ugh!

I am so freaking tired of this! For about a year now, folks are running around stealing my message board posts, my articles, my biz checklists and my business oppty ads!

They remove off my website addy and my name and insert theirs and make the Ads, Posts, Articles, Etc their own!

I am so fed up with thiefs! What is up with all of this?

Don't they realize that there are laws for this? It is indeed copyright infringement!

I have now started reporting these folks to website owners, corporation HQ's etc and I have been speaking out against it. I do have a LOUD ROAR and will ROAR when necessary.

That is my vent for the day! Folks, if you are stealing other peoples posts, biz oppty ads, articles etc...stop it! Get creative yourself!

I agree with you Shelly. Just today I was told about my ad being posted on a few sites by someone else. When I went and looked, sure enough its my ad, word for word. I even added a few lines at the bottom of my own and they are there too.

The ad was done for me by someone else a few years ago. That is how I know its mine. Word for word.

Why do these people not learn how to do their own instead of stealing? Don't they know its copyright infringement as you say?
I have noticed this before but the ads were not word for word like these are. I let it go because the person was new and I figured she would learn eventually. Well apparently not. I am pretty peeved about this and am going to have these ads removed.

I will have to post the copyright laws again I guess on a few more boards for her to see AGAIN.

Its just a shame that folks are being unprofessional like this. Not only that, it is indeed against the LAW!

I requested my newest post/ad stealer to remove my work off the site within 48 hours. If she does not, my attorney will call her. I have already filed complaints against this gal with her upline and will continue to ROAR about it and follow up until its gone.

This is ridiculous...I dont know why people see the need to steal other people's work :evil: We work hard to come up with our own work and then have someone steal it and use it as there own.

I think people are being lazy and are jealous of others that are successful. It is a shame as everyone I know works their butt off to succeed and having something stolen from them is a slap in the face.

Good Luck!

My problem has been resolved and I am pretty sure Shelly's has been too.
Yes its just jealous people or those who are just too lazy to make up their own ads. All resolved though.

Sadly, it's becoming more common! When are people going to learn to come up with their own content!
